But we know #thestruggleisreal for those of you who don’t do gluten… because pizza. Everyone’s childhood favorite, turned adulthood regular indulgence special occasion. But what if we told you that even those not doing gluten this week could enjoy this meal prep recipe? Enter Sweet Potato Pizza (yes, that is the sound of angels singing).
We’re going to guess that maybe a few of you have had the dreaded cardboard gluten free pizza experience. It’s been months since you’ve had anything bready and you’re so excited to take that first bite… and then suddenly you’re wishing you had anything else to take a bite of. We’ve been there, too. So we fool-proof tested this meal prep recipe to ensure that this Sweet Potato Pizza is never added to your list of dinner traumas. It’s super easy to make (only a handful of ingredients!), the crust stays crispy and firm enough to hand-hold, and the pop of Italian seasoning in the base is so perfect you’ll almost forget you’re eating heart-healthy sweet potato!
Have you ever wondered what makes sweet potatoes different than regular potatoes? Even though they carry the same name, sweet potatoes are actually in an entirely different family of plants! Their characteristic orange hue is an indication of the nutrients inside, specifically a huge burst of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that converts to Vitamin A once consumed.
Since the crust is already such a nutritional powerhouse, we decided to stick with the theme of reinventing the entire pizza eating experience and loading our Sweet Potato Pizza with tons of delicious and nourishing veggies. You choose your favorite toppings, but we love the flavor and texture combination of mushrooms, red onion, zucchini, green pepper, tomato, and olives. Enjoy!
