Sweet Potato Breakfast Pizza Crust (Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo)

Sweet Potato Breakfast Pizza Crust (Gluten Free, Paleo, Vegan)

I went back and forth between naming this recipe “Sweet Potato Breakfast Pizza Crust,” or simply “Sweet Potato Pizza Crust.” Just because I’ve been enjoying it for breakfast by no way means it is only acceptable at this time of day. This ridiculously easy, gluten free, paleo, vegan and flavor packed pizza crust can be used for all your pizza topping needs – morning, noon or night. 

Sweet Potato Breakfast Pizza Crust

I teased you with this guy a couple of weeks ago and knew it had to be bumped up the line of recipes I want to share with you. Because it is just seriously THAT. GOOD. 

Sweet Potato Breakfast Pizza Crust

As far fetched as it was, I first got the idea after seeing this recipe. My creation didn’t end up being any where close to this one  – which used almond and oat flour – but it still gave me the idea of making a pizza crust using mashed sweet potato. Like I don’t eat enough of them taters already…

I didn’t feel like using almond flour for such an experiment (#expensive) and wanted to try to simplify it a bit. I actually think it was more this creation of mine (with the help of Ellie’s breakfast bowls) that inspired me more. If I could create a semi solidified “bowl thing” using mainly starch and coconut flour, why not pat it down and make it into more of a base?

I was so pleasantly shocked at how this turned out. It was so sturdy – which is paramount in a pizza crust if you are like me and want ALL the toppings (toppings >> crust all the way) – while still being soft like a real bread dough. Apart from baking the sweet potato, it took mere seconds to whip up and then I could get my toppings made up while it was baking in the oven.

To me, sweet potato needs to be paired with avocado and eggs as frequently as possible. They are like the 3 Stooges. Or Charlie’s Angels. The Three Musketeers. Destiny’s Child. The Bee Gees. I could go on…

They belong together.

So of course that’s how I chose to serve this baby – for my favorite meal with my favorite trio of a combination. But please don’t stop there! Make this sweet potato crust up for dinner and throw on some marinara, cheese and favorite pizza toppings for a more traditional pizza. This crust is ready for anything!

  1. 1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potato
  2. 3 Tbsp coconut flour
  3. 2 Tbsp arrowroot or tapioca starch
  4. 3 Tbsp water*
  5. 1/2 tsp oregano
  6. 1/2 tsp basil
  7. 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
  8. 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  9. salt and black pepper to taste
  10. Spray oil
  1. Pre bake sweet potato in oven or microwave unit soft. Spoon out flesh and mash well with a fork.
  2. Pre heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Add mashed sweet potato into a bowl with the coconut flour, starch and spices. *Gradually add the water 1 Tbsp at a time. Apparently coconut flour brands differ, so you may need a bit more or less water than I did. The result should very much resemble bread dough that you can knead with your hands, without being too dry or too wet.
  4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  5. Place the ball of sweet potato dough onto the paper and flatten out into a round crust, about 1/2 inch thick.
  6. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, checking occasionally. The bottom should get a nice golden grilled color but not burnt.
  7. If topping with cheese and other regular pizza ingredients, top the crust with desired toppings and place back into the oven until cheese etc. is melted (approx 5 minutes). Or simply spread with mashed avocado and top with a drippy egg.

 Tell me,

What’s your favorite “famous trio?”

Do you prefer crispy or bready pizza dough?

    So…. The fact that you made this out of sweet potatoes is really AMAZING. We have two sweet potatoes left, and I’m still hemming and hawing over how to use them. However, this looks really easy… Would I have the patience to make it for breakfast before getting hungry?

      Ooo test that patience!! Have a spoon or two of one of your awesome peanut butters while its cooking to hold you over 🙂

  2. chasetheredgrape | 12th Apr 16

    Oh my goodness I have all these things in the cupboard… I adore sweet potato and eat them all the time…This is soooo going to happen! 🙂
    Favourite trio… Now that’s a tricky one – your combo is such a winner! I love beets, feta and squash together – so good!

    • Cora | 14th Apr 16

      Let me know if you try it!
      Oh beets and feta yes… but squash is a new addition. YUM.

  3. SuzLyfe | 12th Apr 16

    I used to make a fantastic sweet potato crust, but I never posted it! This looks amazing. I would be allllll over this!
    My fave trio… during marathon training, that would be ice cream or yogurt with pb and cereal. Now? I dunno, I want it all!

    • Cora | 14th Apr 16

      You need to post all those unposted recipes so I can put them in my belly!!
      You’re right – why stop at trios when you can just take all of it.

  4. Sarah @ Bucket List Tummy | 12th Apr 16

    This looks amazing, Cora! Love my eggs, sweet potato, avocado combo. And I like my crust slightly crispy but not burnt! Other than that listed above, another favorite food trio is banana slathered with peanut butter and chocolate chips!

    • Cora | 14th Apr 16

      Oh the classic banana pb chocolate. Of course :).
      I think this crust may just be your kind of thing!

  5. Kate | 12th Apr 16

    I would totally order this if it were on a restaurant menu. Glad I don’t have to wait for that now! I love pizza dough that is crispy, but has a dough crust. Like a breadstick. One of my favorite trios is zoodles, marinara sauce ,and cheese. I think I’d love this crust in place of zoodles for that trio.
    Kate recently posted…CaffeinatedMy Profile

    • Cora | 14th Apr 16

      Mm I haven’t had a breadstick in far too long. I need to find a restaurant where they give them out for free.
      This would be delicious with marinara and cheese!!

  6. cookiesnchem | 12th Apr 16

    Oh my goodness, this looks absolutely AH-MAZING. I need it in my life! Eggs, avocado, and sweet potato really are a match made in heaven. I like making sweet potato hash with a poached egg on top, with avocado toast! This looks super yummy, as always. Do you think I could omit the tapioca/arrowroot starch because I don’t have any?
    cookiesnchem recently posted…Eating Well During ExamsMy Profile

    • Cora | 14th Apr 16

      Yeessss to sweet potato hash with poached eggs. I’ll never get sick of that one.
      No I don’t think so – the recipe is pretty based around the arrowroot starch. Cornstarch would work though if you had that!

  7. katalysthealth | 12th Apr 16

    Oh yes, soooo making this!! Not only is the sweet potato/avocado/egg combo sheer perfection, but I just adore a good sweet potato meal! I have a feeling that I will be using this crust in several different ways…. 😉

      Let me know if you try it! I know you’d find a way to make it look absolutely stunning. And Gluten free just for you!

  8. Aubrey @ Clusterforked | 12th Apr 16

    Oh yum, that looks amazing. I am so so making this. I’m inclined to think that using the tapioca variation these could be spread thinner and turned into wraps or thicker for burger buns… mmm.

    • Cora | 14th Apr 16

      Well look at you miss genius! That would be awesome. Especially as a burger bun – I really think that one is possible. Let me know if you give it a shot!

  9. Heather@hungryforbalance | 12th Apr 16

    I love that you listed the Bee Gees!!!
    This crust looks seriously amazing! Pinning for later!

      I hope it works for you if you give it a try!

  11. Ellie | 12th Apr 16

    Hey GIRL! Thanks for the mention! <3 I really want to make this because I have sweet potato in my freezer that needs to be consumed. Might top my sweet style with some PB and chocolate chips because I am an adult and all that stuff 😉 My favorite trio is probably Drake, Josh and Megan (curveball hahaha) They just go together.

  12. Sarah @ Bucket List Tummy | 14th Apr 16

    So, I want to make this tonight! I don’t have arrowroot or tapioca starch. Do you know of any subtsitutions that may work?

  15. masala girl | 23rd Apr 16

    omg. this looks amazing. i’d probably top it with siggi’s and kraut, because t hat’s how i’ve been eating carbs all the time lately (bread, bagels, tortilla, squash, sweet potatoes, and today, chips, lol)

    • Cora | 23rd Apr 16

      Yogurt and kraut? Um YES. I thought I was the only one who could live off that combo (actually a new discovery of mine). Oh man – ontop tortilla chips? Yummmmmmm.
