Sweet Potato Pizza - River North Paleo Girl


  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 lb sausage
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 orange bell peppers, sliced
  • any pizza toppings you like will work
For the Sauce
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to400ºF.

Prick and place your sweet potatoes on a baking sheet. Let them roast until their insides are soft, about 30-40 minutes.
While the potatoes are roasting, mix together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and adjust to your preferences, then set aside.
In a large saute pan, crumble and brown the sausage. Remove the meat from the pan, reserving the rendered fat.
Toss in the peppers and onions. Let them cook until the peppers and onions are soft.
Once the potatoes are done, slice them in half (lengthwise) and arrange the halves nicely on the baking sheet. Smash and loosen the sweets' insides with a fork.
Ladle a few spoonfuls of sauce on top of the sweet potato, followed by the pepper/onion saute, and sausage.
Put the baking sheet back in the oven for a couple minutes, to re-warm everything.
