Tasty Tuesdays: Sweet Potato & Cheddar Flatbread

Welcome To Tasty Tuesdays!

I made a flat bread last week with an unusual combination of ingredients.  I was inspired by a recipe I have for a flat bread with butternut squash, but had a sweet potato on hand, so I decided to use that instead. 

- pizza dough { I used my favorite recipe, find it right here }
- 1 sweet potato, sliced
- handful of fresh spinach leaves
- 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons pine nuts
- 1 tablespoon green onion, sliced
- 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- olive oil
- salt & pepper, to taste

1.  Prepare pizza dough according to recipe instructions.  The one I use needs to be prepared the day before.

2.  Preheat oven to 550 degrees.  See the complete directions for the pizza dough preparation and full baking instructions right here.  Roll out dough according to recipe instructions and top with all ingredients and drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.

Here's the flat bread on a cookie sheet, all ready to be transferred to the hot pizza stone:

3.  Bake 10-11 minutes, or until crust is golden.
Fresh out of the oven:

4.  Slice and enjoy!

I served this for lunch along with a green salad.  One nice thing about making a flat bread is that anything goes.  Just think of all the combinations you could try - the options are endless!

What did you cook this week?

  1. This looks great - I love sweet potato anything.

  2. What a yummy looking meal! I've had potatoes on pizza before but never sweet potatoes. Sounds tasty!

    Thanks for the link party :)

  3. Your flatbread looks amazing, and thanks for hosting a great party!

  4. Yummmmm!! I LOVE putting sweet potato on my pizza or flatbread. Thanks for the awesome looking combination here.
    And thanks for hosting the link up! I shared a recipe for some epic Whole Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins sweetened with all natural coconut sugar and maple syrup.

  5. Great idea! I never thought of putting sweet potatoes on flat bread. I bet our kids would love it!

    Thank you for hosing this link-up today. Some really yummy looking recipes are already linked. I shared Banana Bread with Maple Mascarpone. The boys (2 and 4) helped make this the other day and it was a hit!

  6. Looks like the perfect lunch. It's pretty creative, I wouldn't have thought to put sweet potatoes on flat bread!


  7. Hi Alissa,
    I love the combination for your flat bread, it looks delicious! Hope you are having a great day and thanks for hosting!

  8. What a delicious flatbread!! I love the combo of flavors -- and anything with sweet potatoes is a win in my book :)

  9. I wish I was your neighbor. Ya know, assuming you share all your leftovers. :o)

  10. Thanks for hosting this link party :) I've shared a recipe for a gluten free, egg free biscuit that I rolled up over a middle eastern spice blend. The biscuit recipe can also be used for cinnamon buns or cheese too!

  11. pine nuts and cheese make my little heart sing :)

    i've linked up my smashed flat chicken with prosciutto & sage - it's simple, quick, nutritious, and kind of accidentally blew my socks off. in a good way.

  12. In an attempt to cut down on dairy (among other things - because let's face it... my pants don't fit no more)... this week I've brought 2 recipes to the par-tay!

    1. Fish in a Pinch: Fresh & seasonal Pacific pan seared Halibut with oven roasted tomatoes, CSA braising greens & cumin scented quinoa...all in 30 minutes no less!

    2. Habas con Jamon (broad/fava beans with Jamon)... Spain. In. My. Mouth.... no lies.

  13. Pizza? Sweet Potatoes? Two of my fav things.

  14. You look like a great cook from these pics any ways. I'm a crappy cook. My husband cooks so I do the baking. We tired our own pizza once but it was BAD! (oh, btw, I am new to your blog followers - My name's Renae) And... so we don't spend time in the kitchen together. He cooks dinner and I bake the desserts! Works great! see ya around.

  15. That pizza looks super scrumptious!
