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 are paleo, and gluten-free friendly.

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! 


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)


First, you want to cut your sweet potato into 1/3 thick slices. Once you do that you lay your sweet potato slices on a baking sheet and add with olive oil and bake for 15 minutes until they become almost-like tender.

Next, add your toppings and continue baking until the cheese has melted.


How to store leftovers?

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 Paleo 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!
