Let’s face it, if you ask a gluten-free person what food they miss the most, they are likely to say pizza. Well, given the range of diets out there these days, and the fact that pizza isn’t the healthiest food, I’m always looking for unique, healthy ways to recreate my childhood joy. I know cauliflower crust is super popular, but often these cauliflower recipes contain dairy, and I’m dairy-free, too! Introducing the Sweet Potato Crust Pizza. Not only does it take on the texture of regular, gluten-filled pizza crust, but it’s colorful AND healthy! Not to mention, it’s gluten-free!
Oh and the best part, it only requires 4 ingredients to make the crust! Here’s how we do it.
What You Will Need:
Sweet Potato Crust
1 Sweet Potato
2/3 cup of GF oats
Dash of Salt
Cheese (I went with vegan!)
Avocado Basil Pesto Sauce
1 Clove of Garlic
Dash of Salt and Pepper
Juice from ½ Lemon
¼ Cup water (optional)
What You Will Do:
To make the sweet potato crust: Combine sweet potato chinks, gluten-free oats, egg, and salt in blender, and blend till smooth. On parchment paper, scoop our sweet potato blend and mold into a thin crust, and bake at 400 for 25 minutes.
Take out the crust, and dab with coconut oil. Place back in the oven for 10 minutes.
Crust is now finished! Add toppings for either Margarita or Avocado Pesto, and cook for 10 more minutes! Wah lah!
To make Avocado Basil Pesto:
Combine avocado, basil, salt, pepper, juice from half lemon, and a garlic clove in a blender. If need be, add a quarter cup of water to make the sauce more liquid.
This recipe is super simple to make, healthy, and a total must-try for any gluten-free person. It was also inspired by one of my favorite recipe websites, Pinch of Yum!
