A simple sweet & savory combination, this sweet potato pizza combines roasted sweet potatoes, creamy brie cheese, and peppery fresh arugula.
- 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.
