I know the title sounds odd. Who puts sweet potatoes on pizza? The girl who was trying to get rid of the leftovers in her refrigerator, that is who! The pizza I made last night on a whim turned out to be one of the best I have had in a long time!
Lately I have been using Udi’s Gluten-Free pizza crusts. Though they don’t have to be kept in the freezer, it is best to do so if you won’t be using them in a couple of days. I always try to keep some on hand for nights when nothing else sounds good or I need to make dinner in a hurry.
As I was making room in our refrigerator yesterday for the food we are preparing for a cookout this weekend, I noted the items that needed to be tossed or eaten as soon as possible. On the list was 1/2 of a sweet potato leftover from the other night, mushrooms, jar of marinara sauce and some feta cheese. The sweet potato pizza was born.
Sweet Potato PIzza (serves 1-2)
- 1 Udi’s Gluten-Free pizza crust
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup marinara or pizza sauce
- Sauteed mushrooms
- 1/2 – 1 baked sweet potato
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
- 1/8 cup crumbled feta cheese
1. Preheat oven according to the directions on the pizza crust package.
2. Assemble pizza and bake 10 – 12 minutes, or longer to lightly brown crust and melt the cheese.
3. Slice and enjoy!
When creating off-the-wall pizzas, sometimes you get a combination that is just so-so and sometimes you hit a home run. This, my friends, was a home run! I can’t believe how well the flavors complimented each other! I can definitely see making this again in the near future.
What is the oddest combination of toppings you have put on a pizza?
