  • I have one word for this Sweet Potato Pizza...AMAZING!

    Packed with Vitamin A and C, this dish takes less than 10 minutes of prep. It's perfect for a quick weeknight meal and even "gourmet" enough for a dinner party.

    You must try this--I know it sounds unusual but it's the perfect pizza -- a little sweet, a little salty, creamy and crunchy. Heaven!

    When I first mentioned my idea everyone said, "huh?". After trying it, there were rave reviews all around. My skeptical husband loved it! My super-cute friend Katie stopped by while I was whipping it up and tried a piece. She exclaimed, "I am going to go buy the stuff to make this TONIGHT!" She served it to her husband who also raved about it. So, grab your ingredients and let’s whip up a pizza!

    Note: For those of you who aren't familiar with mascarpone, it's a delicious soft italian cheese that you can usually find in the fine cheese section of your grocery's deli. The mascarpone really makes this fabulous but if you can't locate any, you can substitute 5 oz. cream cheese mixed with 2 T. sour cream.

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into very thin slices.

    Lightly drizzle olive oil over pizza crust then spread with mascarpone cheese. Sprinkle with garlic salt.

    Layer potatoes over the mascarpone and sprinkle with rosemary, thyme, and kosher salt. Drizzle olive oil over entire pizza (about 1 Tbsp).

    Bake at 425 degrees for 18-25 minutes, until potatoes are soft and crust is crispy.

    Remove from oven and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Serve immediately.
