[award-winning] sweet potato pizza

Sweet potatoes and I have just recently begun to be friends. Growing up in Idaho, I was very familiar with potatoes – but not sweet potatoes. My grandma began to introduce sweet potato casserole into our Thanksgiving spread, and I’ve (albeit slowly) started warming up to the idea of adding it to the list of beloved traditional dishes.

Well, my chance to really fall in love with sweet potatoes came. Our friends were holding an Iron Chef competition, and the secret ingredient? Sweet potatoes. My friend and I came up with the following recipe, and we were all impressed by how delicious it turned out. So, here’s the award-winning sweet potato pizza recipe that has allowed sweet potatoes to win over my heart:

[award-winning] sweet potato pizza
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled & sliced thinly
  • ½ red onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 lb. store-bought pizza dough
  • 4 oz. smoked gouda, sliced
  • arugula
  • balsamic vinegar
  • honey
  • fresh garlic
  • salt & pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with foil, and spray with cooking spray. Toss sweet potatoes, red onion, brown sugar, and salt and pepper (to taste). Put in oven for about 30 minutes, tossing potatoes halfway through.
  2. In the meantime, divide the pizza dough in half. Sprinkle the counter with flour and roll dough out to desired size. Once you have removed the sweet potatoes from the oven, turn the oven up all the way (probably 500-550 degrees). If you have a pizza stone, make sure you put the stone in the oven before you start the potatoes, when the oven is hot. Otherwise use a greased cookie sheet.
  3. Place the crust in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Pull crust out and brush with olive oil & garlic. Arrange sweet potatoes, red onion and gouda slices on the crust. Bake for 6-8 more minutes, until crust is browned on the bottom. Arrange arugula on the top, and sprinkle with a mixture of balsamic vinegar & honey. Enjoy!
