Golden Sweet Potato Pumpkin Pizza

This pizza has been inspired by the I Quit Sugar 8 week program. It blew my mind! It is so flavoursome and incredibly smooth – and seriously, just look at those colours! It was my favourite recipe from the whole program and this cheeze is the perfect match.

What's inside

  • 2 gluten-free wraps or pizza base

  • 1 big sweet potato, washed and quartered (200g)

  • 1 small Kensington pumpkin, washed and quartered (400g)

  • 2 Tbs rosemary

  • 1 tsp pepper

  • 2 Tbs pine nuts

  • 2 cups spinach

  • 1 handful basil leaves

Melting Pizza Cheese

  • 1 cup water

  • ¼ cup cashews, soaked and drained

  • 2 ½ Tbs tapioca flour

  • ½ garlic clove

  • 1 Tbs of nutritional yeast

  • 1 Tbs lemon juice (¼ a lemon)

  • 1 tsp oregano

  • ½ tsp sea salt

How to

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

  2. Add the sweet potato and pumpkin on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 20 minutes until soft and tender.

  3. Add 2/3 of the sweet potato and pumpkin to a blender together with the rosemary and pepper and blend until well combined. Slice the remaining sweet potato & pumpkin.

  4. Roast the pine nuts in a hot, dry pan for a couple of minutes. Make sure you don’t burn them.

  5. Put the pizza base on a baking tray covered with parchment paper. Spread the pumpkin-potato sauce on top. Add the basil & spinach leaves and top it with the sliced veggies & roasted pine nuts. Cook for another 15 minutes until the greens are soft.

  6. Meanwhile, to make the melting pizza cheese, add all the ingredients to your blender and blend until you get a smooth, fine texture. This will take about 2-3 minutes.

  7. Pour the mixture into a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. Stir constantly to avoid any clumps. The texture will firm up after a couple of minutes.

  8. The best way to enjoy the melting effect of this cheese is to immediately spoon it onto your pizza and enjoy straightaway. As it gets colder the cheese firms up.

  9. Take the pizza out of the oven and spoon the melting pizza cheese just before serving!

Kitchen Hack

I like to cook a big batch of sweet potato pumpkin puree and freeze the leftover for the next time I make this pizza. This reduces the cook time significantly and I can have it as a super quick dinner pizza.
