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.
Pepperoni - add after the marinara sauceand before adding the cheese on top
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.
