Wow the fam with these amazing grilled sweet potato pizzas! All you need is sweet potatoes, your favorite marinara sauce or pesto, mozzarella, and your favorite pizza toppings for this healthy 30 minute meal.
I think we just invented the most amazing grilled pizza of our lifetime. I actually got inspired from my girl Kelsey from Little Bits Of, the inventor of sweet potato toast. What a genius idea to pop a sweet potato slice into a toaster, eh? As you know, sweet potatoes are a staple food in the Fit Foodie diet, so we decided to slice our taters like Kelsey did and take things to the grill.
I’D LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO SWEET POTATO PIZZA.
No pizza crust is needed because you just replace it with a grilled sweet potato slice. Oh, and it only takes 15 minutes to make. Buh bye 30 minute meal…hello 15! Don’t be afraid of the grill, ladies. It’s actually really easy to do and there’s so much more flavor. A little bit of char goes a long way.
We kept these little pizzas very basic knowing that there is about a million different ways you can top them. We did go back and forth between a marinara and pesto. Both equally as amazing and full of flavor. On top of your sauce you have a sprinkle of mozzarella and some fresh basil. Finger lickin’ good shit right there.
Grilled Sweet Potato Pizzas
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1/3 cup organic marinara sauce OR 1/4 cup pesto*
- 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- fresh basil
- Preheat grill to 375ºF (alternatively you can use your oven).
- Slice sweet potatoes length wise (about 1/4 of an inch thick), rub with olive oil (or spray with olive oil cooking spray) and season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Lay a piece of tin foil onto the grill and spray with olive oil cooking spray.
- Place sweet potatoes onto tin foil and grill for 10 minutes or until you've created beautiful grill marks on your sweet potato slices. Then, flip.
- Add 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce (or 1/2 tablespoon of pesto) and one tablespoon mozzarella cheese to each sweet potato slice and grill for an additional 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- Remove from grill and top with fresh basil.

Yumi! This looks tasty
Great idea for a low carb pizza meal. I made these on the grill yesterday and they came out great. The key ingredient to tie it all together is the fresh basil on top. It adds a nice flavor complement to the other ingredients.
Amazing idea. Excellent job. Keep writing
Yummy! I love this recipe. This is my favorite. But I want to make it normal potato, not the sweet potato. Because sweet potato I don’t like. If I make this recipe with potato, will it change the taste?
Hey Karen! Go for it. The flavor will differ just because normal potatoes and sweet potatoes taste so different!
