Sweet Potato Pizzas

I thought this would be quite a cute and fun meal seeing as I had a bit more time on my hands today to cook, it’s a healthy and vegan way to make pizza! I behaved like a child when making the toppings because I just wanted everything in my fridge to go on them, but it’s really up to you what you want to top them with – just like a pizza you can pick whatever you want, and of course you’re free to put cheese or meat on them if you want to; the sweet potato flavour I think is more suited to just vegetables and tomato sauce, but that’s just me I guess.

I love meals like this because I’m safe in the knowledge that it’s all healthy so it doesn’t freak me out or overwhelm me like a normal pizza would, but it was really fun to make and I genuinely enjoyed creating them and eating them which is a good thing :)

It also served as procrastination from revision – I’m at the stage where I’m genuinely a little frightened of how my exams are going to go… I handed in my Creative Writing portfolio today and I still have two exams: English and Philosophy. Wish me luck, I’m definitely going to need it!

Sweet Potato Pizzas


One large sweet potato

Tomato purée

Basil and black pepper to season

Whatever toppings you want; I used courgette, mushrooms, sweetcorn, red peppers and Quorn slices


  1. Cut the sweet potato lengthways into 3 thick-ish slices (two outside bits and a middle slice)
  2. Bake in the oven (about 200 degrees Celsius) for 25 minutes until cooked and tender
  3. Top each slice with a bit of tomato purée, seasoning and whatever toppings you like, then return to the oven – maybe sprinkle with a little olive oil or oil spray – for about 15 minutes until the toppings are slightly brown

Serves one
