Servings 1


  • 1 medium white (Japanese) sweet potato (250 g)
  • 1/2 scant cup tapioca flour (potato starch works too) (50 g)


  • Peel one white (Japanese) sweet potato, cut it into small cubes and boil in water until it's very soft (about 20 minutes).
  • Let it cool and mash it with a fork or a potato masher.
  • Now add the tapioca flour/starch and knead with your hands for a couple of minutes until you have a smooth dough. If you use orange sweet potatoes you will need to add a different flour in addition (e.g. rice flour) because the orange sweet potatoes are less starchy. I definitely recommend using the Japanese sweet potatoes though!
  • Lightly grease a pan/skillet with a little bit of coconut oil and spread the pizza dough onto it.
  • Cook from one side (3-5 minutes) then flip around, add your sauce and toppings and cook for another few minutes from the other side.
