1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes
1–2 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
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.
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.
