Sweet Potato Pizza with a Chilli Mozzarella Topping

In this clean pizza recipe, sweet potato is formed into a crust replacing the traditional pizza dough crust. This base holds together well and the resulting gluten-free pizza can be picked up and eaten just like a regular pizza – only much healthier!!

Sweet potato is a gift to clean-eaters everywhere! This vegetable is significantly more nutritious than white potatoes and it has a lower glycaemic index so it won’t rapidly release glucose into your blood stream.


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 210°C.
  2. Place a seasoned pizza stone, or lightly oiled baking tray in the oven to heat up.
  3. In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together cold mashed sweet potato and the beaten egg until a relatively smooth batter is formed.
  4. Add the Gram flour and stir well until the flour is well incorporated into the batter. The mixture will be quite wet and that’s fine.
  5. Remove the hot baking tray/stone from the oven and very carefully, spoon the base mixture onto the tray and spread it into a round or a rectangle depending on the shape of your tray. You want the base to be reasonably thick (the water will evaporate to make the final crust thinner).
  6. Put the pizza base in the top of the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together the diced tomatoes, diced red chilli and diced red onion.
  8. After 20 minutes, remove the baked crust from the oven. Carefully spread with the tomato puree, then top with the diced fresh tomato mix.
  9. Sprinkle generously with mozzarella and bake for a further 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  10. Serve with fresh salad and enjoy!
