Healthy Sweet Potato Crust Salad Pizza {gf,v}

Updated: Mar 19, 2021

When life hands you sweet potatoes, you make sweet potato pizza crust! That's the saying, right? Okay, this is one you don't wanna miss. Let's be honest, vegetable crust pizza is a vibe; If you haven't hopped on that train yet, you're missing out. This recipe took me three tries to perfect, but now it's the recipe of mine I'm most proud of. This pizza is vegan and gluten free, but still tastes like any ordinary, bomb a$$ pizza. The crust is super simple; the dough forms with the use of only one blender. What I love about this recipe is that the pizza crust is crispy enough that you can eat it like a normal slice of pizza. I also love this version because it's a tossed salad pizza! I tossed the hearty greens with one of my homemade dressings and added some fresh veggies. This is a perfect dinner that all the fam will enjoy- seriously, my dad loved it, maybe even more than I did. Get yourself some sweet potatoes because it's pizza time!
