Spiralized Sweet Potato Pizza Skillet

Those of you who know me know that I could eat some sort of pizza dish nearly every day for the rest of my life.

That’s why I’m excited to share this recipe with you from my friend Ali’s new book, Inspiralize Everything.

If you’re not familiar with Ali, she’s the person behind Inspiralized, a blog exclusively dedicated to sharing spiralized recipes– she’s even created her own spiralizer! I had the pleasure of meeting Ali in person earlier this year (we both attended a cooking class at the Culinary Institute of America), right when she was in the middle of editing this book– so I’m thrilled for her that her second book is finally here.

Inspiralize Everything is a cookbook organized alphabetically by type of produce, from apples to zucchini, so you can easily find a recipe to work with using the produce you already have on hand. This book is loaded with recipes to accommodate a variety of diets, from paleo to vegan to gluten-free to raw, and it also includes several one-pot, make-ahead, and no-cook meals to make things as easy as possible. All you need is a spiralizer to get started! (I use this one, pictured above.)

Some of the tempting recipes included in this book are:

  • Crabless Crab Cakes with Green Apple Guacamole
  • Apple Walnut Muffins
  • Chicken & Celeriac Rice Soup
  • Winter Lasagna with Butternut Squash
  • Watermelon Radish Nourish Salad with Lemon-Ginger Vinaigrette
  • Cheeseless French Onion Soup
  • Zucchini Noodle Bread with Coconut Cream Frosting

I rarely have the patience to make anything that takes more than 30 minutes in the kitchen these days, so this Sweet Potato Pizza Skillet from the new book was the perfect meal for my family last week– and I asked Ali if I could share it with you below. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did!

Ohhh I havent tired spiralised sweet potato but this looks like something I would try – need to get out of my dull meal routine that has happened!

Teajae

That looks absolutely fantastic. I most certainly would try. No tomatoes for me so I’d used pesto instead. How marvelous ?

Jennifer

That looks so good! I don’t have my cast iron skillet anymore (16 year old daughter tried washing it…let’s not go there). Anyway, will this work if I transfer my stove top items into a glass baking dish to bake?

Thanks!

    Cathy Wilson

    Yes. I actually think I read that when I saw this recipe before. You could use a 9X9 baking dish.

Judith

I think you forgot which spiralizer setting to use for the sweet potatoes. At least I can’t find it.

Sarah

Omg this was OUTSTANDING! I added some jalapeno. For anyone reading comments, you should consider doubling this! I will be next time. 🙂

Megan, I am loving Everyday Detox but wonder. Many recipes use cashews and they are one nut meat I do not tolerate well at all. As a general rule, what would be the best substitute. Any other nut meats or would you recommend one in particular.

Hubby is a hot dog and pizza guy and it is taking some time but I am gradually introducing new choices. He batched it for two long, just eatting what was easy for him by himself. Your yummy ideas are a great help in helping him eat healthy.

    Megan Gilmore

    My guess is that blanched almonds would be the best substitute for cashews, though you’re welcome to experiment! I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying the recipes so far. 🙂

Samantha

Do I have to use a cast iron skillet for this recipe? I love all your recipes.

Janet McMullin

Fabulous! I added some grass fed ground beef as a topping for my meat loving husband. Delicious ?

Chrissy

I made this last night and it is absolutely one of the greatest recipes that I have ever made. I’m not sure how you managed to fit three sweet potatoes in a 10 inch pan… I used 2 large sweet potatoes in a 14 or 16 inch skillet… but regardless, this was amazing. I’m not particularly fan of sweet potato or pasta, and didn’t have high expectations, but this one totally exceeded what I ever could have imagined. Huge hit with everyone in this house!
