Hey everybody 🙂 How was your fourth of July? We had a great time with our boys watching the fireworks and of course living in Missouri that means we get to shoot fireworks as well. Now that my son is ten we let him shoot off some of the smaller fireworks and he thought he was big stuff!
This recipe is a little different than what I normally write but since it is baked I figured I could share it with you. It’s a gluten free sweet potato pizza. There is a story behind it but first let me describe it.
You start with a gluten free pizza crust (store bought) and then top with sweet potatoes, black beans and feta. This recipe comes together super quick. It is a great work week recipe. The longest part is boiling the sweet potatoes and if you dice up the sweet potatoes really small then you can significantly cut down your boiling time.
A Gluten Free Sweet Potato Story 🙂
Really the story should be called gluten free but you get the idea.
This is our personal story and experience with ADHD. Please do not see this as a recommendation in anyway but an awareness over the foods we put in our body.
About six years ago my oldest son was in the doctor’s office and he was especially hyper that day. And the doctor asked if he was normally this hyper. Mamma alert, I knew where it was going. I had a feeling this would eventually come up.
When all the other little boys are walking by their mamma’s perfectly and my boy is jumping on the table. I knew it would eventually be asked if my son has ADHD.
We was at the doctor’s office that day for a checkup for his younger brother so we made an appointment for my oldest to discuss ADHD and if testing was required. First, our doctor is awesome. Not only is she great at her job but she listens.
After talking with our son’s doctor she recommended two options. Diet changes or we could do testing immediately. We chose diet. Why? Because after listening to all the foods that can trigger ADHD or exaggerate ADHD I knew there was so many foods that I could change in our household.
If you have read some of my other posts you know up until my oldest son was born it was pretty much packaged and frozen food. Umm, didn’t know processed food was that bad until this point. I also did not know that pretty much everything that comes in a package is considered processed.
There is so much more to this story but fast forward six years and my son is doing much better.
And that is where today’s recipe comes in. One of the first things to go was gluten. So hello gluten free everything 🙂
Gluten Free Sweet Potato Pizza
You can find many recipes for a sweet potato pizza. Mine is different because you mash the sweet potatoes. It becomes the sauce if you will for the pizza. This recipe makes two pizza’s.
Start by boiling eight sweet potatoes. Like I said if you want to cut down on your boiling time cut the sweet potatoes smaller.
Once the sweet potatoes are tender you are ready to mash them. I like to add one tablespoon of butter to the potatoes while they are being mashed.
Get your pizza crust out. I used Udi’s frozen pizza crust.
Next you will top your pizza. Spread the sweet potatoes out as you would any pizza sauce.
Top with black beans and feta.
Bake at 400 for ten minutes. Or until the black beans and crust are done.
A easy work week recipe that comes together and cooks in under 30 minutes. A gluten free crust with sweet potatoes, black beans and feta.
- 1 package Udi's Gluten Free Pizza Crust
- 8 Sweet Potatoes
- 1 Tablespoon Butter
- 1 can Black Beans
- 1 cup Feta Cheese
Start by peeling and boiling the sweet potatoes
Mash the sweet potatoes and add one tablespoon of butter
Top with black beans and feta
Bake at 400 for 10 minutes
And you have a very quick gluten free pizza.
A little more work than a frozen pizza but so much better for you.
