Sweet Potato Pizza with Tomato Chutney

I don’t usually think of sweet potatoes in the spring but I heard of 2 recipe contests that require the use of this tuber. I wanted to develop something easy, healthy and of course tasty.

This pizza can made in about 15  minutes, and it only bakes for about 30 minutes. You could even make it faster by replacing my ketchup based sauce with a store bought tomato chutney. It’s an easy appetizer, snack or even a meal. Sweet potatoes are a great source of vitamin A and C, and fiber. When thinking of a recipe I wanted to create something nearly everyone could enjoy, so there is no meat or dairy in this recipe. Almost vegan, but not quite because of the yeast.

Wish me luck on the recipe contests, but more importantly I hope enjoy the pizza!

1/2tsp Ginger, minced

1 clove of Garlic, minced

1 1/4 tsp Curry powder

1/4C Ketchup

1/2 Sweet potato, peeled and thinly sliced

1/2 pound of Pizza dough *

1/2 tsp Olive oil, plus some for greasing the pan

1 T Thyme fresh leaves


Preheat the oven to 375 and lightly grease a 9in round cake pan. Stir together ginger, garlic, 1 tsp curry powder and ketchup; set aside. Place the sliced sweet potatoes on a microwave safe dish and precook for 2 minutes on high in the microwave. Stretch the pizza dough to fit the prepared pan, and place on the greased pan (you could use a pizza stone if you have one) spread the ketchup sauce evenly over the dough. Arrange the par-cooked sweet potato slices on top of the sauce. (I gently press on the potatoes so that they stretch the dough to the edges of the pan.) Sprinkle the top of the pizza with the remaining curry powder, 1/2 tsp olive oil and a little salt. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden. Sprinkle with thyme before serving.

*Most pre-made dough is sold in 1# packages
