This was such a fun pizza! I have never seen sweet potatoes as a pizza topping before this. I was so excited to try it. I did use wheat pizza dough. I am a pizza sauce fan. To me...it's all about the sauce, so I added a homemade white sauce to this pizza recipe. I also caramelized onions to add to the pizza. I completely forgot to add the herbs, but it was still absolutely delicious! Love the great idea!
My toddler who is against vegetables at the moment loved this pizza. It was a great way to get him to eat his vegetables. I did use my homemade whole wheat pizza dough instead of the refrigerated. My husband on the other hand did not like the pizza and thought it didn't have enough flavor.
