Who says good pizza can’t be healthy? Or healthy pizza can’t taste good? This Barbecue Chicken Pizza with Sweet Potato Crust is gluten free, dairy-free, and packed with protein and veggies. And it tastes ahh-mazing!!
Pizza has been off the menu ever since I became lactose-intolerant about ten years ago. We also avoid gluten whenever possible, so that’s two strikes against those cheesy, doughy pies of deliciousness.
That is until my husband dreamed up the sweet potato crust recipe that changed my life. Finally I can enjoy pizza without worry of an upset tummy! (Or busting a diet!) And it is so so good.
I crave this pizza and once you try it, you will too!
Here’s what you need to make this amazing sweet potato crust pizza:
- 3 medium sweet potatoes
- 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 cup spinach, chopped
- 1 cup pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, shredded
- 1 egg
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
- 1/2 cup tomato sauce
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
STEP ONE: Pre-heat oven to 400°.
STEP TWO: Cook sweet potatoes in microwave until soft.
STEP THREE: Peel sweet potatoes and add to large mixing bowl with: 1 cup almond flour, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon dried basil, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar. (For an extra kick, add a pinch of chili powder.) Mash ingredients until well combined and the mixture takes on a doughy consistency.
STEP FIVE: Cook dough at 400° for 30 minutes.
STEP SIX: While pizza dough is baking: shred 1 cup of pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, chop 1 cup spinach, and sauté one thinly sliced medium red onion until soft.
STEP SEVEN: Remove pizza dough from oven and spread 1/2 cup barbecue sauce and 1/2 cup tomato sauce on top.
STEP EIGHT: Cover pizza with shredded rotisserie chicken, chopped spinach, and red onions. Drizzle with barbecue sauce.
STEP NINE: Return pizza to oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy!
You can see from the photos there is a beautiful crispness to the edge of the sweet potato crust. It holds up really well with as many ingredients as we piled on, though it’s probably easiest to eat with a fork. But it is seriously so amazing you won’t mind 🙂
