A simple sweet & savory combination, this sweet potato pizza combines roasted sweet potatoes, creamy brie cheese, and peppery fresh arugula.
A tree fell on our house this week. Thankfully we’re all okay and the house is still standing, though a new roof is in our future. Our house looks a little dilapidated with its crushed roof, and the gaping split of the tree is still dominating the backyard, which is covered in sawdust and scraggly branches. Life is messy. Keep reading for more on messy lives, and this sweet potato brie pizza recipe.
And in between it all, we make food….lots of it. Like this sweet potato pizza, which might be one of our favorite pizzas yet. The sweetness of the roasted potatoes combined with the creamy brie and peppery fresh arugula is an ultimate taste treat. We’d never tried brie pizza before, but it’s now officially in our rotation. This recipe is yet another reason to feed our obsession with sweet potatoes…as if we needed one!
- 1 ball Best Pizza Dough (or Food Processor Dough or Thin Crust Dough)
- 1 small sweet potato (8 ounces)
- 1 large garlic clove
- 1 shallot
- 4 ounces Brie cheese
- 1 cup baby arugula, packed
- Olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Semolina flour or cornmeal, for dusting the pizza peel
- Make the pizza dough: Follow the Best Pizza Dough recipe to prepare the dough. (This takes about 15 minutes to make and 45 minutes to rest.)
- Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 450°F. OR preheat your pizza oven (here’s the pizza oven we use).
- Slice the sweet potato into ⅛-inch thick rounds. In a small bowl, mix the slices with 1 teaspoon olive oil and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then add the slices and roast until tender when pricked with a fork, about 9 to 10 minutes.
- Turn up the oven to 500°F. Meanwhile, mince the garlic and thinly slice the shallot.
- When the oven is ready, dust a pizza peel with cornmeal or semolina flour. (If you don’t have a pizza peel, you can use a rimless baking sheet or the back of a rimmed baking sheet. But a pizza peel is well worth the investment!) Stretch the dough into a circle; see this video for instructions. Then gently place the dough onto the pizza peel.
- Brush the dough lightly with olive oil. Spread garlic evenly over the pizza, then add sweet potato rounds, torn pieces of Brie cheese and sliced shallots. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
- Transfer the pizza to the pizza stone using the pizza peel, then bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 to 7 minutes. While the pizza bakes, mix the arugula with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of kosher salt. When the pizza is baked, top with arugula and cool for 1 to 2 minutes, then cut into slices and serve.
