A picture truly says a 1,000 words – I mean what could I tell you that the glistening pepperoni hasn’t already whispered in your ear!?! Yep… that’s it… it’s final – we’re having pizza bites for dinner! There’s no need to make a real meal when you can have nibbling snacks instead!

One of my favorite things about these is the crispy cheese lacing around the edges – it’s the perfect contrast to the melty-cheesy-pepperoni on top! And… I’ll tell you a secret – don’t make these whilst home alone unless you plan on eating every. single. one. Not that I speak from experience or anything, but I may or may not have eaten the entire pan after taking these pictures!

For the sweet potato rounds, you’re going to start by cooking them halfway before you top them. Once the bottoms are browned, you turn them over and start adding toppings!

I made these 2 different ways, the first time I put the pepperoni under the cheese and the second time I placed the pepperoni on the top – conclusion – it doesn’t make any difference really except that the pepperoni on top looks way better!

When these go back in the oven for the second time, you want to bake them until the cheese is molten on top, and crispy on the edges.

Description

All the favorite classic pepperoni pizza flavor made into a fun snack with these Sweet Potato Pizza Bites. They’re the perfect gluten free solution to pizza night and you can easily make a meal out of these. They can even be made dairy free with your favorite cheese substitute. The sweetness of the sweet potato is the perfect pairing with savory pepperoni and these are also super popular with kids.


Ingredients

Scale

1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes

12 Teaspoons olive oil or avocado oil

5 Tablespoons marinara sauce

1 cup grated, packed mozzarella, weighing 2-3 ounces

15 slices of pepperoni, about 2 ounces


Instructions

Preheat the oven to 450ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Wash and trim the sweet potatoes, and cut them into 1/2 inch slices. You should have about 15 slices.

Brush the sweet potato slices with the oil and place them on the lined baking sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until the bottoms have browned and the sweet potato slices are almost tender.

Remove them from the oven and flip them over so the browned side is facing up. Top each slice with about 1 teaspoon of marinara sauce. Sprinkle the grated mozzarella evenly over the top of each sweet potato slice, and top with one slice of pepperoni each.

Place the sweet potato slices back in the oven, and bake until the cheese is molten and the edges are crispy, about 5-8 minutes.

Serve immediately!

Notes

You can cook the sweet potato slices to the halfway point and store them in the fridge if you want to plan ahead for a party.

  1. so yum!! I just made these for lunch. I didn’t have any marinara on hand, so I used some ricotta topped with red pepper flakes and dried basil as the base. I also used a purple sweet potato. I’ll try the marinara next time!

  2. GENIUS!!!! I’ve tried the spaghetti squash for a pizza crust but it’s more work than I wanted – these look super easy!! Since I love, but can no longer eat, pizza I think I’ll try these making long slices in the sweet taters instead of little round slices. Thanks for this idea, would not have come up w/it on my own. Longer slices = more toppings. Cannot wait!!

    YAY!!!

    • I like your style – ‘longer slices = more toppings’! The whole cauliflower/veggie crust thing is often too much work for me too, so that’s actually how I came up with these pizza bites – I hope you enjoy them!

  3. We made these for our fellowship tonight. I didn’t try any, but my husband said everyone loved them. My 6 year old and 4 year old boys helped make them. Easy recipe, and I had almost every ingredient on hand. Unfortunately, the boys didn’t have a bite either, but they enjoyed making them. Thank you so much for this recipe! I will be making more tomorrow!

  4. just saw this from the site, this idea is brilliant! The traditional pizza dough base is almost pointless anyway so why not use something much better for you and love sweet potatoes, have been looking for creative ways to use them, so thank you for this!
