Hello, Sweet Potato Pizza!
Over my many pizza-loving years, I’ve enjoyed traditional pizzas with tomato sauce, as well as white pizzas and ones drizzled with pesto.
But when I started thinking about how to add extra nutrition to my pizza, I realized I’d never had a pizza with sweet potato. So I set out to create a tasty and nutrient-rich version! Enter this sweet potato flatbread pizza recipe.
How to Make This Flatbread Pizza Recipe
To make this recipe, I used a flatbread pizza crust that's low in calories and filled with satiating protein and fiber.
enriched wheat flour and soy flour, you might also find gluten-free versions with all-purpose flour, almond flour, or even coconut flour when shopping for pizza crusts.
The benefit of buying ready-to-go pizza crust? There's no rolling pin required!
How to Make a Cauliflower Flatbread Pizza
I topped the flatbread with sweet potato puree–which I spiced up with ground chipotle–as well as shallots and cauliflower.
You can use any cauliflower you desire, but I chose purple for a boost of color, as well as nutrition from the antioxidants that give the cauliflower its color.
Then I topped the pizza with Fontina cheese and fresh thyme. The sweet potato adds a boost of eye-helping vitamin A, plus satiating fiber. And the cauliflower provides immunity-helping vitamin C.
I had this pizza for lunch with a side of roasted veggies—I roasted extra cauliflower to serve up! The combo was super delicious, and I’m thinking of whipping it up again soon for an easy gourmet meal that I can serve up for my husband and I.
