A while back I made this pumpkin tart flambee and you guys were loving it! When I wanted to make it again in form of a pizza, I had run out of pumpkin. So I tried a version with kumara (sweet potato) instead and it turned out so beautiful!
The ratio of flavour and sweet potato is a little different but the finished pizza is once again so yummy. It has a very thin and crispy crust. Perfect for all you crispy vegan pizza lovers out there 🙂
And while this recipe for sweet potato pizza is vegan, gluten-free and yeast-free it also works without tomato. How cool is that? I hope I can make a few people that have food allergies or sensitivities happy with this recipe 🙂
Kumara (Sweet Potato) Pizza (Vegan, Gluten-free, Yeast-free, Oil-free, Without Tomato)

- Add buckwheat flour and rice flour to the bowl with the mashed kumara. Stir to combine. Then knead with your hands and form into a dough ball.
