If I had to make a list of my absolute favorite foods, the top ranking foods would be: chocolate, bread, sweet potatoes, goat cheese, blueberries. Hands down. I have to fight the temptation to eat chocolate and a muffin with every meal, and I pin every single sweet potato recipe I see on pinterest like it’s my job. Thus, this recipe is about as close as it comes to perfection in my book- it’s got bread in the form of a yummy pizza crust, a base of sweet potato, and goat cheese to top it all off! What more could a girl want?! (besides chocolate and blueberries.) I know it may seem weird to have a sweet potato pizza, but try something new! Shake up your typical routine! Life’s more fun that way, and turns out- a pizza can be more delicious that way too.
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 large onion, thinly sliced
- 1 cup chopped kale
- 3 tbsp. skim milk or soymilk
- 1 prepared whole wheat pizza crust
- 1 cup shredded goat cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 premade pizza crust (I suggest whole wheat)
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Rinse your sweet potato and poke several small holes in it with a fork.
- Wrap the sweet potato in aluminum foil, place in your preheated oven, and bake for about 45 minutes- or until soft all the way through.*
- In the meantime, heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over low heat. Add the thinly sliced onion and dash of salt to the pan. Cook the onion, stirring occasionally, for 30- 40 minutes or until just caramelized.
- When the onion is close to being done cooking, add the kale to the skillet and cook until tender and wilted. This should only take a few minutes! Remove the pan from heat and salt and pepper to taste.
- Scoop the potato insides into a medium bowl and mash. Add the milk and salt, mixing until blended in and smooth.
- Using a large spoon, spread the potato mixture onto a pizza crust.
- Sprinkle with half of cheese, the kale and onions, and then the remaining cheese.
- Bake the pizza for about 10 minutes at 400 degrees, or until kale begins to crisp and cheese melts.
Notes and Tips:
- Tip: Don’t turn your oven off after baking your potato- leave it on because in a few minutes you will need it heated up to bake your pizza!
