  • 1/2 Sweet Potato
  • 1 Naan I used garlic + coriander naan
  • 1 tablespoon Vegan Pesto see notes for recipe
  • 20 grams Dairy-Free Cheese
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • handful Spinach
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • small bunch Fresh Basil
  • small handful Chopped Walnuts
  • Flaky Sea Salt to taste


  • Preheat your oven to the grill setting.
  • Add the sweet potato to a microwaveable bowl filled halfway with water and pierce the potato with a knife. Microwave for 5 minutes (it will cook further in the oven).
  • Meanwhile, spread the vegan pesto on the naan. (I like to cook my pizza on a pizza tray or grill tray, to allow the heat to cook it underneath too)
  • Grate/ finely slice the dairy-free cheese and sprinkle on top. Chop the onion and spinach, and add to the pizza.
  • Drain and peel the sweet potato then chop into large chunks. Spread them evenly on the pizza. Sprinkle with freshly cracked black pepper.
  • Bake the pizza under the grill setting for 5 minutes. Keep an eye on it, as it will cook quickly! If you find your pizza is cooking too quickly, you can cover the crust with some tin foil to prevent it burning.
  • Once golden, remove the pizza from the oven and top with fresh chopped basil, walnuts and flaky sea salt. Slice and enjoy hot!


  • I used homemade vegan pesto for this recipe - it's a lot cheaper than store-bought and it's also super easy! Get my vegan pesto recipe here.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the fridge and enjoyed the next day, preferably for breakfast :)
  • You might like to enjoy some homemade polenta chips alongside your pizza - they're so easy and so healthy!
