Paleo Sweet Potato Pizza Crust Recipe

This delicious gluten free pizza crust is for everyone! Perfect for anyone following a paleo or gluten free diet, but also a great option for anyone who is looking to eat healthier. This crust bakes up crispy around the edges, and firm enough to hand-hold slices. Although the crust is softer than a standard pizza crust, it's a delicious alternative!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sweet potato from roasted sweet potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  • Roast sweet potatoes. I roast my sweet potatoes at 420 degrees F for 1 hour - 1 hr. 20 minutes, until they are very soft.
  • Once potatoes have cooled, scoop out the flesh, and measure out 2 cups of sweet potato puree.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add sweet potatoes, and use a hand mixture to whip the sweet potatoes until they are smooth.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, and use the hand mixer again to mix well.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degree F.
  • Line a cookie sheet with baking paper. Scoop "dough" in heaping 1/2 cups (the recipe will make 4 small pizza crusts).
  • Wet your fingers, and lightly press down on the top of each mound.
  • Cover 1 mound of dough with another piece of parchment, and then use a flat-bottomed smooth plate to press down until the sweet potato is about 6 inches in diameter. Watch this process in the video above.
  • I like to use wet fingers to gently mold the edges of the crust, but this is optional.
  • Bake the crusts for 30 minutes.
  • Top the crusts with sauce, cheese, or other toppings, as desired.
  • Return topped pizzas to the oven for 12-20 minutes, depending on how many toppings are added. A basic cheese pizza will bake in 12 minutes, but a pizza loaded with tons of veggies will take 20.
  • For instructions on freezing and reheating pizzas, read notes in post above.
