I’ve always loved pizza (who doesn’t!!) but anytime I indulge, it leaves me feeling bloated and with an upset stomach. After taking a food sensitivity test a few months ago, I was able to pin-point a few food sensitivities that I have – including dairy and yeast. Dairy is easy enough to eliminate, and there are plenty of vegan and dairy-free recipes to choose from. But what I have found very difficult to eliminate is yeast. Yeast is in so many different things – from chicken stock, to bread, pizza crust, hot sauces, vinegar, kombucha, alcohol, nutritional yeast… and basically anything that is fermented.

Yeast Free & Dairy Free

With that in mind, I set out to find the perfect yeast-free and dairy-free pizza crust that would satisfy my pizza cravings. I’ve seen lots of other cauliflower or sweet potato pizza crust recipes, but many of them include cheese or nutritional yeast. This recipe includes none of the above, and yet it is very simple and delicious. In fact, you wouldn’t even know that there’s a veggie hiding out in there if it wasn’t for the bright orange colour!

Gluten Free Option

I personally don’t need to avoid gluten, but if you are sensitive to gluten you can easily make this recipe gluten-free by using an all purpose gluten-free flour blend such as this one by Bob’s Red Mill. I tested it both ways – with regular flour and with the Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose gluten-free flour. Both turned out great, the only difference with the gluten-free flour is that you can’t roll the dough quite as thin. If you roll it too thin, it breaks a little easier. I also recommend rolling it out on a piece of parchment paper if you are making the gluten-free option!

The first time I tested this sweet potato pizza crust recipe, it as delicious… but I noticed that it was too sweet. Sweet potatoes are tasty and nutritious, but they can add a lot of sweetness to a recipe like this that is supposed to be savoury. I decided to include a higher flour: sweet potato ratio, and toned down the sweetness by including garlic powder, dried oregano, and a good dose of sea salt.

Ingredients

This sweet potato pizza crust can be made with just 4 simple ingredients, and a few additional spices if you’d like to add some extra flavour! The spices are totally optional, but I really enjoyed the flavour boost from the garlic powder and oregano. They take this pizza crust to the next level, and really made it taste like a classic pizza (you’d never know there’s sweet potato hiding out in there)!

  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes, peeled & diced (should yield 1 ½ cups cooked sweet potato)
  • 2 ¼ cups organic all purpose flour (or all purpose gluten-free flour)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

Toppings

I topped my pizza with tomato sauce, mushrooms, dairy-free cashew cheese, prosciutto, pesto, olives, and some fresh arugula (once it was out of the oven)! What toppings are you going to try on this sweet potato pizza crust? I would love to know, please leave a comment below if you try it!

Course Main Course

Ingredients
  

  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes peeled & diced (should yield 1 ½ cups cooked sweet potato)
  • 2 ¼ cups organic all purpose flour or all purpose gluten-free flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF
  • Add the diced sweet potatoes into a steamer. Cover with a lid and let steam until fully cooked and tender (about 10 minutes). Set aside to cool.
  • Add the sweet potato to a food processor and blend until it is smooth.
  • In a large bowl, add 1 ½ cups of the sweet potato, egg, all purpose flour, baking powder, garlic powder, oregano, sea salt and pepper. Stir to combine all of the ingredients.
  • It should form into a nice smooth and stretchy dough, with no dry bits.
  • Divide the dough into 3 equal parts – this will make 3 medium sized pizzas. If you prefer 2 large pizzas, divide it in two!
  • Roll out the dough on a well floured surface until it is about ¼ cm thick. This dough can be rolled fairly thin, if you are using a regular wheat flour. If using a gluten-free all purpose flour, you may want to roll it out on a piece of parchment paper, and not quite as thin. I tested this recipe both ways, and the gluten-free flour option was more likely to tear at this point. As long as you are gentle with it, it will be just fine!
  • Bake on a baking sheet or pizza stone for 20 minutes at 375ºF. After 10 minutes, flip the crust over to ensure that both sides get crispy and it bakes evenly. At this point you can add your toppings, or set aside to cool and freeze for later.
