Easy Sweet Potato Pizza Bites

Welcome back to another Pizza Friday! Where I share homemade pizza recipes that are easy to make and super delicious!  This week we are changing things up and going with these Sweet Potato Pizza Bites!

These Pizza Bites make a delicious snack or appetizer and are super easy to make! Get ready to be WOW’d! They are that good! And, before you know it, they will be gone in minutes! So, it might be a good idea to make 2 batches of these! 

What ingredients do you need to make these Sweet Potato Pizza Bites?

These easy pizza bites take about 30 minutes to make and requires a few ingredients:

  • Sweet Potatoes: Jewel yams are my go-to because they have a sweet flavor when they are baked and pair nicely with the marinara and mozzarella.
  • Marinara: Homemade or store-bought. I like to make our homemade tomato sauce, but a good fallback is Rao’s Marinara Sauce.
  • Mozzarella: Our go-to mozzarella cheese is Belgioioso Fresh Mozzarella Cheese. It’s fresh, and when melted, it has a nice texture and flavor.
  • Basil: Because what’s a pizza without basil?
  • Olive Oil, Salt, and Black Pepper, Red Chili Flakes (Optional)

Storage and Reheating:

  • Store in a glass container in the refrigerator for up to 2-days.
  • Reheat in the microwave, or even better, add some olive oil to a pan and fry the bottoms! These also taste delicious cold too. Your preference, really. 

These Sweet Potato Pizza Bites are so dang good and make the perfect appetizer or snack! We hope you all love them as much as we do! Enjoy!

These Sweet Potato Pizza Bites are so dang good and make the perfect appetizer or snack! They take about 30 minutes to make and requires a few ingredients!


  • 12 sweet potatoes (small-medium, about 1 lb. look for a narrow/long sweet potato (yam)), cut into 1/3 inch thick coins.
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • pinch of salt and black pepper 
  • 1/4 cup of marinara sauce, homemade or store-bought
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, cubed/shredded
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves, finely chopped

Optional Toppings:

  • pinch of red chili flakes 
  • Pepperoni – add after the marinara sauce, and before adding the cheese on top


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut sweet potatoes into 1/3-inch thick coins and drizzle the olive oil on top. Add a pinch of salt and black pepper, and use your fingers to coat the sweet potatoes with the oil and spices thoroughly.
  3. Bake the sweet potatoes for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Be careful not to over bake them as you don’t want them too soft.
  4. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and add a spoonful of marinara sauce in the center. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese evenly on top. Return to the oven and bake for 5 additional minutes, or until the cheese is melted. 
  5. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the finely chopped basil leaves on top. Let the pizzas cool for about 2-5 minutes before serving.
