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!

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!

Question of the Day

What’s your favorite kind of pizza?



  1. Just tried this recipe!! Absolutely amazing!! Added more spices, but it tasted amazing! Definitely recommend it!

  2. Just wanted to let you know I’ve made this twice now and love it.

    The first time I made it with a bit too much sweet potato but still worked out fine once I played around with it but tonight I made it again and oh my god – amazing. So much flavour in that base and topped it with chicken, roast peppers, red onion and ricotta.
    I also added red chilli flakes to the base and half mozzarella/parmesan as I only had those – worked fine.

    This made two pizzas – one was enough to share with my partner (2 slices each)

  3. Question: When you say mashed sweet potato, do you mean mashed as in boiled sweet potatoes or do you mean mashed raw sweet potatoes? Thanks! This recipe looks yummy!

  4. Ah just baked this one last night, since I’ve had a huge craving for pizza for a while. I must say that it was a really nice substitution for the real deal. I didn’t have the actual pizza baking tray so I had to place it in the deep dish, which made the crust a bit thicker, it was still good.. the spices really made it taste like a pizza and now I got some more for today’s lunch!

    Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I tried it and thought it was great! I would also omit the cinnamon next time. I also forgot to put cheese in the crust and it was still great. I also didn’t have baking powder and it still turned out.

  6. Pingback: It’s Here.
  7. Best pizza crust EVER!!! Love, love, love it! Even my best friend who can eat regular pizza crust loves this crust. We gorged on it last night & now I’m making my own. I plan on gorging again. 🙂

  8. Thank you for sharing this and so many more great recipes. I made this last night with turkey bacon, pineapple, and a little more cheese as the topping. It tastes great and is VERY filling, I think maybe the almond flour and/or the fiber in the sweet potato is what makes it so filling. I plan to make this again using other types of flour and omiting the cheese. I want all that cheesy, gooey goodness up on top where I can see it and fully experience in all it’s glory (in case you hadn’t figured it out yet, I like cheese). I’ll post again after I play with the ingredients, but I wanted to make sure I sent some kudos before I forget!

  9. Has anyone made the crust and the put it in the freezer and taken it out at a later date to bake? Did it turn out ok thanks!
