Herbed sweet potato pizza crust topped with the most moreish satay tofu and roast vegetables! Heaps of chain pizza stores in Australia (such as Dominos, Crust and Pizza Capers) have recently introduced vegan pizzas with decent toppings including avocado, pulled jackfruit, marinated tofu, sweet potato and vegan cheese! It’s super exciting because it means I don’t have to miss out on pizza night when my friends/partner want one!
I recently tried a satay tofu pizza at one of the above chains and thought it was an amazing combo. So I set myself on a mission to create my own.
I’m a big fan of tasty and wholesome pizza bases so used sweet potato as a core ingredient in it. You can also use pumpkin! I made a satay sauce with a coconut aminos sweet chilli sauce, peanut butter and garlic. So simple and so easy which means it’s on a quicker route to my stomach!
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
