1 large sweet potato peeled and grated (use the grating blade on your food processor to save time)
1 tbsp of coconut oil
½ tsp of chili powder
½ tsp of Spanish smoked paprika
½ tsp of garlic powder
Lemon pepper
1 egg.

-Recommended toppings: 3-4 Button mushrooms, 1/4 red onion, handful chorizo, 8-10 tiger prawns, 3-4 cherry tomatoes, 1/4 sweet pepper.

Utensils:
Measuring spoons
Large glass bowl
Oven proof pan
Wooden spoon
Grater – food processor
Whisk and small bowl for you egg
Grease proof paper
Pizza dish or large baking tray
Rolling pin

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°c/428°F.
  2. Heat the pan and add the coconut oil – allow to melt before adding the grated sweet potato. (If you are pressed for time skip this step and make the base raw – make sure to grease the paper with some coconut oil)
  3. As the sweet potato starts to cook and changes to a light yellow colour, gently sprinkle the spices and mix thoroughly.
  4. Continue cooking for a further minute or two, remove from the heat and season with lemon pepper.
  5. Put the sweet potato into a glass bowl and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.photo 1
  6. Cut two large circles of grease proof paper the same size as the tray.
  7. Once the sweet potato has cooled down whisk the egg and add it to the mixture.
  8. Place one piece of paper on the tray and empty the contents of the bowl spread, it out evenly and place the other sheet on top, smooth out with a rolling pin / heavy book and place in the oven for 10 minutes.photo 2 (11)
  9. Prepare pizza toppings
  10. Remove from the oven, reduce heat to 200°c/ 392°F. Flip pizza and remove the parchment and add your chosen toppings – tomato passata works really well as a substitute for tomato sauce, the organic Bunalun one is delicious and paleo! Only put about 1 tbsp max on as too much will make your beautiful base soggy! Top your pizza with your favourite treats and put it back into the oven for 10/15 more minutes depending on what you’ve put on top!
  11. Serve and enjoy!
