I wanted to like this pizza. I thought the sweet potatoes would be a delicious pizza topping, and I was excited for the fontina cheese. Unfortunately my husband and I agreed that this pizza had NO flavor. Very, very bland. I think this combination could be good with some sliced apple or pear, but I'm not going to try. I won't be making this again.

I thought it had great flavor with the sweet potatoes. Hubby not quite as impressed.

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.
