Purple Sweet Potato Pizza Crust
Catherine Perez, MS, RD
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour 1 cup mashed purple sweet potatoes 1⁄4 tsp adobo seasoning 1⁄2 tsp oregano ̈Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Combine flour and seasonings in a medium bowl. Add in sweet potato and start to knead the flour into the sweet potato to form a smooth dough. If dough is dry, add 2 tbsp of water at a time to form dough.
Place dough on a flat floured surface, and with a rolling pin or your hands, begin to flatten it into a pizza crust shape.
Place dough on a lined baking sheet and cook in the oven for about 13-15 minutes.
Remove crust from oven and top with additional sauce, veggies, vegan cheese and plant proteins like beans or tempeh.
Place pizza back in the oven for another 5-8 minutes to help warm veggies and melt the vegan cheese. Cut into equal pieces and serve.
