Sweet Potato Pizza Recipe
















It's Thanksgiving time again! The air is crisp, the leaves have fallen, and grocery stores everywhere are beginning to stock up on pounds and pounds of delicious Turkey!

To me, the best part of Thanksgiving would have to be the delicious side dishes. Green Beans, cranberries, mashed potatoes, stuffing, buttery dinner rolls, every side dish brings it's own burst of flavor and taste! But for me, the ultimate side dish would have to be sweet potatoes! The delicious combination of cinnamon, spice, and sweetness is really what makes the Thanksgiving holiday was it is.

It's my overwhelming love of sweet potatoes that led me to this recipe. Not only does it combine all the things we've grown to love about sweet potato casserole, but it bakes it on a super delicious pizza crust. And thanks to the use of our Organic Coconut Flour, the whole dish is gluten free! Now you know you can't beat that! Now that our mouths are watering, let's get to baking this ultimate Thanksgiving side dish, Sweet Potato Pizza.

Ingredients (crust):
1/2 cup Honeyville Organic Coconut Flour
3 Eggs
1 cup Whole Milk
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbsp Chef Tess Wise Woman of the East Spice

(Topping):
2 cups Honeyville Freeze Dried Sweet Potatoes
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
4 Tbsp Butter
1 cup Mini Marshmallows

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.


In a medium bowl, whisk eggs and milk together.


In a large bowl, combine coconut flour, baking powder, and wise woman of the east spice and mix together.


Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix together until a thick batter forms.


On a greased pizza pan lined with parchment paper, pour batter over and smooth out. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.


Remove, allow to cool, then turn over crust so that the bottom side is facing up on the baking sheet.


In a large bowl, re-hydrate sweet potatoes by soaking in water. Once re-hydrated, drain the excess water from the bowl.


Spread sweet potatoes on top of the pizza crust evenly.


In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar and cinnamon until completely combined.


Sprinkle on top of sweet potatoes.


Dice up butter into small cubes.


Line cubes around the pizza on top of the sweet potatoes.


Top with mini marshmallows.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.


Remove and let cook for 5-10 minutes before serving.

This dish is everything you've come to love in sweet potato casserole! The aroma of baking sweet potatoes, combined with the smell of cinnamon, sugar, and spice fills the kitchen with all the familiar scents of Thanksgiving!


The bubbly taste of melted marshmallows, along with the sweet sugar will give you those sticky fingers you just love to lick clean! Slice this up like a pizza for hand held deliciousness.


Serve it as a side with Thanksgiving, or save it for a sweet after-meal dessert. Either way, you'll definitely be coming back for seconds and thirds!
