  1. Begin by peeling the sweet potato, then cut it into cubes. Steam the cubes for approximately 12 minutes, or until they become soft. Allow them to cool.
  2. In a small bowl, mix ground flax seeds with water and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
  3. Transfer the cooled sweet potato cubes to a larger bowl and mash them using a fork or potato masher.
  4. Add the flax seed and water mixture to the mashed sweet potatoes, and stir well to combine.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, then pour them into the sweet potato mixture.
  6. Begin mixing with a spatula, then continue with your hands until all the ingredients are well incorporated. If desired, you can refrigerate the dough ball for 30 minutes to make it easier to work with.
  7. Divide the dough ball into 3 equal pieces, each weighing approximately 235 grams. Roll out each portion on parchment paper, using a small amount of flour to prevent sticking. Adjust the thickness of the crust according to your preference.
  8. Carefully transfer the rolled-out dough, along with the parchment paper, onto a baking sheet. Bake at 175ยฐC for 10 minutes.
  9. Remove the crust from the oven, flip it over, and spread tomato sauce and nutritional yeast over the top. Bake for an additional 7-10 minutes, adjusting the baking time based on the thickness of the crust.
  10. Once baked, garnish your sweet potato pizza crust with arugula, broccoli sprouts, or any other greens of your choice.


Instead of store-bought pizza sauce, feel free to make your own marinara sauce.

Should you use other toppings such as mushrooms, bake the topped pizza as long as your add-ons are done.

You may use food processor to mash the potatoes and combine them with flax egg.

Store in a sealed container in the fridge for a few days or freeze for longer keeping.

You must be super hungry to eat the whole pizza as it’s very filling (at least in my opinion). I usually eat half a pizza.
