Ingredients

  • 500 g white sweet potato, peeled Use any potato variety you have on hand!
  • 2 tbsp flour of choice
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 flax egg To make, mix 1 tbsp ground flaxseed with 3 tbsp of water and leave to stand for 15-20 minutes
  • 2.5 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp juice from canned tomatoes
  • 1/4 small zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 orange bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp frozen green peas, thawed
  • 2 store-brought vegan sausages, finely chopped

For the avocado sauce

  • 1/2 medium avocado
  • 2 stalks spring onion
  • 2 tbsp green peas, thawed
  • juice of 1/2 lemon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees C/392 F. Add instructions on how to microwave potato.

  2. Mash the sweet potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Add the flour, the nutritional yeast and the flax egg, combining thoroughly. 

  3. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Coat your hands with a light dusting of flour and form the 'dough' into patties around 1cm in thickness and 10cm in diameter. Bake in the preheated oven for around 20 minutes, until slightly crispy. 

  4. Stir together the tomato paste and the juice from the canned tomatoes. Remove crusts from the oven, and spread evenly with the resulting mixture. 

  5. Top with the zucchini, bell pepper, red onion, frozen peas and sausages. Bake for a further 20-25 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked through. 

  6. Meanwhile, make the sauce by simply blending together the avocado, spring onions, green peas and lemon juice. 

  7. Serve the pizzas immediately or leave to cool for as long as desired. 

Recipe Notes

Make as many or as few pizzas as you want out of the 'dough', but keep in mind that this may affect cooking times.
