Tips for a perfect sweet potato pizza
- It is important to cut the potatoes into thin pieces in order to bake well in the oven and to combine perfectly with the rest of the ingredients.
- Another important recommendation is to add the cheese with blue mold only towards the end of baking. Thus, it will melt nicely and remain creamy, without drying or becoming hard.
- This sweet potato pizza can be served hot, but also cold, as a delicious snack for any time of the day.
To make this recipe vegan, you can replace the blue cheese with a vegan alternative, such as vegan cashew cheese or vegan almond cheese. You can also replace the pizza crust with a gluten-free and keto alternative, such as a pizza crust made with almond and coconut flour or a pizza base made with cauliflower or zucchini.
Also, I chose to use them as a topping, not as a topping, but for a low-carb, keto or gluten-free version, you can try using the sweet potato slices directly as a pizza topping, without using the dough.
In conclusion, the recipe for pizza with sweet potatoes and blue cheese is a delicious and innovative alternative to traditional pizza.
