Happy National Pizza Week! I swear there’s a national holiday for just about every food, but this is one I can definitely get behind. I love me some pizza!
In honor of National Pizza Week, I had some fun in the kitchen yesterday and created a crust made from mashed sweet potatoes. Brittany’s Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust inspired me to think outside of the (pizza) box and try something a little different. The end result was quite delicious and nutritious!
A healthy twist on pizza night!
1.5c mashed sweet potato

The best part about this pizza (in my opinion and Mal’s) is the texture of the crust. It’s firm and a little crispy, but still soft and chewy””almost like a “real” pizza crust.
I was a huge fan of the flavor (because I love curry), but if you don’t enjoy the taste of curry (like Mal), just leave it out. I think all of the other spices will still add some seriously delicious flavor to the crust. FYI: If you’re a fan of the Curry Spice Blend from Practical Paleo, you will definitely love this crust!
I hope you guys love this Sweet Potato Pizza Crust as much as I do! If you make it, please let me know what you think!
