GF Sweet Potato Pizza Crust

I have made this about 5 times in the last 10 days. Maybe a little excessive, but I just find it exciting to use sweet potato that makes up almost 50% of this pizza crust!


  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour (I ground up Bob's Red Mill GF rolled oats)
  • 1 cup cooked sweet potato, peeled (I peeled and chopped it into chunks and boiled it to save time)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning / Oregano
  • 1/2 tbs nutritional yeast (compliments the sweet potato really nicely and adds a nutty cheesy flavour if you aren't familiar with nutritional yeast. I highly recommend trying it if you haven't!)
  • pinch red hot pepper flakes, optional if you like some spiciness


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a food processor/blender or bowl, blend the cooked sweet potato into a smooth consistency. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well until you have a smooth dough. It shouldn't be really sticky, but it won't be really dry either. You should be able to gently roll it out onto a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet without it sticking all over the place. Add in more oat flour a tablespoon at a time if you have that issue.
  3. Bake for around 25 minutes (it will depend on how thin or thick you have rolled it out. Mine was between 1/4"-1/2".) Remove from oven, allow to cool.

Tip: If you are adding toppings, I would suggest taking out the pizza about halfway through baking and adding on sauce / veg cheese etc. This will probably depend on what toppings you are using though. Sometimes I stir fry or pre-roast veggies and add a tomato sauce with the veggies on top after the crust has baked. Then you could always pop it back in the oven for a minute or two if you have any yummy cheese to melt on top.

    Hi Clare It has been sometime since I was last here. The site has changed and was a little hard for me to understand at first. I love your recipe and it looks so easy to make. I will try this on Sunday for the family dinner. The grandchildren will be happy to have pizza and salad for dinner on Sunday. I think that I will make smaller pizzas and let each one of them add their own toppings. This should make a fun Sunday event. Thank you so much for sharing. I have to go back and read so much I have missed in the last few months. I was busy and time just got away from me.
