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!
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!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
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.
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.
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.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle the finely chopped basil leaves on top. Let the pizzas cool for about 2-5 minutes before serving.
