Buffalo Sweet Potato Pizza

Buffalo Sweet Potato Pizza

We found this recipe and liked the idea of it, but weren’t crazy about all of the ingredients and changed it to appeal to us. Try the original recipe if you want, but here’s how we did it, to make 2 pizzas:


– 3 cups all-purpose flour

– 8 oz warm water

– 1 teaspoon of sugar

– 1 packet of fast-acting yeast

– 2-3 tablespoons of vegetable oil

– About a teaspoon of celery seeds

– 1 teaspoon salt

– 2 large sweet potatoes

-1 1/2 cups Buffalo sauce

– 200g feta

-1/2 yellow bell pepper

-1/2 a medium onion

1. Mix the sugar and water, then sprinkle the yeast on top and put it aside until it’s foamy

2. Mix the flour, salt, and celery seeds, then add the yeast mixture and the oil. Mix it with your hands until it all sticks together, adding more oil if needed.

3. Set it in a warm space (I set it inside the oven after turning it on low for a few minutes, then turning it back off before setting the bowl in) for half an hour or until it has about doubled in size.

4. While the dough is rising, peel, chop, and boil the sweet potatoes until they’re just soft enough to mash.

5. Drain the potatoes, mash them (but not too well. Leave them kind of chunky.) and let them cool to room-temperature.

6. While the potatoes cool, take the dough out. Punch it down, divide it into 2 balls, then knead each for a few minutes, or until they’re smooth and uniform in appearance. Put the dough balls back in the mixing bowl and let it rise again.

7. Preheat the oven to 400 F/200 C.

8. Flatten each dough ball onto a pan that has been sprayed with a little cooking spray, or on to a pre-heated pizza stone. Spread the dough out as thin as you can without tearing it.

9. Spread a thin coating of Buffalo sauce on to each.

10. Spread a layer of sweet potato, then another layer of Buffalo sauce. Use the back of a spoon to spread it around.

11. Top each with some grated feta, but don’t go overboard with it.

12. We topped one pie with sliced bell pepper and onion, but left the other as it was.

13. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted.
