Vegan Gluten Free Sweet Potato Pizza Crust, Crispy Wasabi Sweet Potato Strips & Spinach Chive Dipping Sauce

My love affair with sweet potatoes has continued and now it has intertwined with oat flour to create a gluten free pizza crust! This is relatively easy to make. I would like to experiment with using yeast in the future, to see if I can make a puffy/fluffy crust. This one is crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside, so it is just more like a thin crust pizza. I prefer a small “bready” ratio to a veggie ratio anyway, so I think it works nicely. The sweet potato gives it a lovely colour too!

Ingredients
Pizza Crust Version 1 (less oat flour)
  • ¾ cup + 1 tbs oat flour
  • 1 heaping cup cooked sweet potato, peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • sea salt, black pepper
  • 1 tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp tzatziki seasoning mix (garlic, dill, sea salt, lemon juice powder, parsley,
  • vinegar powder) - I used this because I was out of a lot of of my other spices, use what you have on hand
  • 2 tsp corn starch
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Pre-cooking the sweet potato at an earlier time helps to cut down on the prep, since cooking it can take a bit of time and waiting for it to cool adds to that. Blend the cooked sweet potato with the oat flour until smooth and creamy. You may need to scrape down the sides with a spatula. I used a Vitamix, but it is possible to do it with a smaller blender. You may just have to do it in more than one batch.
  3. Transfer mixture into a bowl and add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until everything is combined.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the mixture evenly onto it. I made my crust about ½" in thickness. Because I used less oat flour in this version (scroll down for the version with more oats - the mixture will be less sticky and easier to spread out). Even though the mixture is sticky, once it is baked it should be easy to lift off the parchment paper.
  5. Bake for around 18-20 minutes. You can either add topping halfway through baking or after you've baked the crust.

Serves: 1-2
Ingredients
Crispy Wasabi Sweet Potato Strips
  • small sweet potato, peeled and sliced into strips using a julienne peeler
  • 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp wasabi powder
  • 1-3 drops liquid smoke
  • ½ tbs coconut oil
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Slice sweet into thin strips and marinate in the 4 remaining ingredients for a few minutes while your oven preheats. Place them in one layer on a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet and bake for around 20-30 minutes. You may want to flip them over halfway through. TIP: You may also want to separately bake a potato/sweet potato since you are using the oven for a decent amount of time.
  2. They should be crispy but mine were still bendy. This recipe was just my way of using up a bit of sweet potato, so it's a bit random but the strips tasted good on top of my pizza!

Ingredients
Pizza Crust Version 2 (more oat flour)
  • 1¼ cup oat flour (I ground up rolled oats)
  • 1 cup cooked sweet potato (peeled and chopped into chunks)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • sea salt
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ tbs nutritional yeast
  • pinch red hot pepper flakes, optional
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Pre-cooking the sweet potato at an earlier time helps to cut down on the prep, since cooking it can take a bit of time and waiting for it to cool adds to that. Blend the cooked sweet potato with the oat flour until smooth and creamy. You may need to scrape down the sides with a spatula. I used a Vitamix, but it is possible to do it with a smaller blender. You may just have to do it in more than one batch.
  3. Transfer mixture into a bowl and add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until everything is combined.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread or roll the mixture evenly onto it. I made my crust about ½" in thickness. Unlike the previous version above, this dough ends up being slightly dryer and easier to work with since it had more oat flour. Both versions taste great and cook well, but if you want to be able to roll out your dough and make a smoother and more circular pizza crust, then this recipe variation will work best!
  5. Bake for around 20-25 minutes. You can either add topping halfway through baking or after you've baked the crust.

  1. Hello!

    Instead of the oat flour, what could I use as a substitute? Also, for the sauce, could I omit the lite silken firm tofu altogether?

    Always with a smile,
    Amber

  2. Hi there Amber! You can use pretty much any other kind of flour, especially if you aren’t concerned about it being gluten-free. If you want it to be GF, Bob’s red mill makes an all purpose gluten-free flour and there is also buckwheat flour and sorghum flour that would work. The Silken tofu makes up the whole texture of the sauce, so it wouldn’t work to omit it without replacing it with something similar, such as a plain yogurt. I hope this helps! 🙂 –Clare

  3. What else can be used for the dipping sauce besides Tofu??
