Paleo Sweet Potato Pizza Crust

  • 2 cups cooked & mashed sweet potatoes (about 2 medium sweet potatoes)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Line a pizza or baking tray with parchment paper and set aside. Place the cooked sweet potatoes in a medium bowl and mash well. Add eggs and vinegar and incorporate well with a hand masher or mixing spoon. Mix in the coconut flour, baking soda, salt and ground pepper. Pour the sweet potato batter onto the baking tray and spread it out so that the crust is about 1/4 inch thick. Bake for about 30 minutes, until golden in color. Remove from oven. Optional step: once cooked, flip crust onto the baking tray and peel parchment paper off so that the top of the pizza is now the smooth side.

Top with your favourite ingredients. Be sure to precook any hard veggies or meat, since the pizza will only bake for about 15 minutes.

Suggested toppings:
  • basil pesto
  • tomato sauce
  • artichoke hearts
  • caramelized onions
  • olives
  • sundried tomatoes
  • sautéed  spinach (or other greens like kale or chard)
  • roasted garlic
  • bell peppers
  • artichoke hearts

Once topped, return the pizza back to the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes.
