Sweet potato crust ingredients:

  • 3 sweet potatoes medium
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar


  • 1 cup pre-cooked rotisserie chicken shredded

To make the sweet potato crust:

  3. Peel sweet potatoes and add to large mixing bowl with almond flour, egg, salt, dried oregano, dried basil, garlic powder, and 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.

  2. Remove pizza dough from oven and spread 1/2 cup barbecue sauce and 1/2 cup tomato sauce on top.
  3. Cover pizza with shredded rotisserie chicken, chopped spinach, and red onions. Drizzle with barbecue sauce.
  4. Return pizza to oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy!
