How to make a sweet potato pizza crust

First, cut the sweet potato in half and bake it at 325ºF/170°C (fan-assisted) for 35-40 minutes. Once cooked, blend the oats in a high-speed food processor or blender until they reach a fine powder consistency. Add the baked sweet potato, egg, and spices to the oats. Blend again until the mixture forms a smooth, uniform dough.

Next, grease a round baking tin and spread the dough evenly over the base. For easier cutting later, you can indent the center with a glass or cup (see the photos/video). Pre-bake the crust at 325ºF/170°C (fan-assisted) for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare and chop your vegetables.

Steps for making sweet potato crust and making rainbow pizza

After pre-baking, spread tomato sauce over the crust. Optionally, add a layer of cheese, then arrange the vegetables on top to create a rainbow pattern. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes at 325ºF/170°C (fan-assisted), allowing the vegetables to soften and cook through.

Once baked, remove the pizza from the oven. If desired, remove the center part of the crust for a fun presentation. Your rainbow pizza is now ready to enjoy!
