I push myself to cook anything that looks daunting to me which is why Amo Cooks has been a regular series on our blog. Since Pizza’s are generally all carbs and not enough proteins, however this Veggie Pizza with Sweet Potato Crust is a very healthy option, is GF and better quality carbs.

I love the response that I’ve received with Amo Cooks which is why I am always trying out new things and want to share recipes that are not just easy to make but provide ample nutrients to the body, mind and soul. I want to make eating a full experience. So here’s the third recipe, a Veggie Pizza with Sweet Potato Crust. I post daily updates on my gram here.

INGREDIENTS:

FOR THE BASE

  • 1 cup (235 g) mashed sweet potato
  • 3/4 cup (120 g) white rice flour
  • 1/3 cup (40 g) tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • cooking spray

FOR THE SAUCE

  • Half can of tomatoes with some balsamic Vinegar, garlic bulbs, salt and pepper to taste blitzed in a processor

FOR THE TOPPINGS

  • Sundried tomatoes
    Black pitted olives
    Fresh rocket
    Shredded mozzarella

DIRECTIONS:

  • Peel and chop one medium sweet potato into chunks (about 3 cm) and boil it in a pot with water for about 10 minutes or until fork tender.
  • Discard the water and mash the sweet potato with a potato masher (I used the same pot). You’ll need 1 cup (235 g) of mashed sweet potato for this recipe.Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
  • Add rice flour, tapioca flour, baking powder + salt and mix with a spoon.
  • Once the mixture cooled down a little bit, use your hands to knead the pizza dough into a ball. If the dough is too dry, add a tiny bit of water or oil. If it’s too sticky, add more rice flour.
  • Place the pizza dough onto a sheet of greased baking or parchment paper and add a second sheet of parchment paper on top. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into your preferred shape.
  • Remove the top parchment paper (don’t throw it away, you will need it again) and transfer the rolled out pizza dough (including the bottom sheet of parchment paper) onto a baking sheet. Bake the pizza dough in the oven for about 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, remove the pizza dough from the oven. Add the second parchment paper on top, and carefully flip the pizza dough over.
  • If the crust is too hot, simply wait a few minutes. Now, peel back the hot parchment paper.
  • I made two medium sized crusts

Spread the sauce and add the toppings. Sprinkle with cheese and back in the over for another 10 to 12 mins.

Last week I posted the recipe for Teriyaki Salmon.
