Sweet Potato Pizza Base

Sweet Potato Pizza Base

Pizza!!! What can I say...apart from it being a glutenous celiacs nightmare I mean really its nothing special....bread..sauce and toppings..k..JKS...we all crave it!! So this is my spin on a healthy alternative.

Growing up in a family owned restaurant where the wood fired oven pizzas were worthy of a 2 hour drive it was a big part of my life but of course once turning gluten free all activity in the kitchen for me was ceased and it wasn't until 6 years later I have finally created/found a pizza worthy of my family speciality equivalent.

With a few tweaks here and there I have made it into a simple gluten free and optional vegan (*see notes below) recipe that I LOOOVE!

I'm not a big fan of super greasy pizza and for me this is a way to eat lots of vegetables but in a fun fresh alternative. Also if you have children its the perfect opportunity to get them involved and sneakily eating vegetables too...

*If you would like to make it vegan use as the egg substitute a homemade chia or flaxseed egg, which can be made by simply stirring together freshly ground seeds and water to make a gluey mix. Usually 1-1.5tbs of seeds to 3 tbs of water.

Feel free to get CRAY on adding you own choice of herbs and spices into the dough, I usually use a herb mix, or oregano and rosemary and with spices I L O V E turmeric so always add that and then smoked paprika, cumin and chilli. Other favourite additions i love....Wholegrain mustard seeds, nutritional yeast, fresh chilli.

Im not claiming it tastes exactly like a traditional pizza does because it definitely definitely does not! However I do think its a taste explosion that takes a simple boring dough into a wholesome healthy vegetable base bed for you to then put other yummy veggie toppings on TOP...(basically this pizza is a vegetable baked then topped with other vegetables)....BUT IN A GREAT WAY!

Just trust me and try. x
