Sweet Potato Kale Pizza with Rosemary & Red Onion

Sweet Potato Kale Pizza Recipe on #recipe #pizza

I have good intentions when it comes to making dinner, but lately I am too tired to follow through. I am really productive in the morning, but when 3:00 in the afternoon hits, I am done. All of my motivation goes out the front door. This week I planned a few dinners, but never got around to making them. Luckily, I have the most amazing husband who always steps in to take care of me and our little guy. This week he came home from work and I told him sorry because I didn’t make anything for dinner, once again. He told me not to apologize and immediately went into the kitchen to cook dinner. He made the most amazing Sweet Potato Kale Pizza with Rosemary & Red Onion. He definitely spoiled me with this delicious meal.

Sweet Potato Kale Pizza Recipe on #recipe

Josh loves pizza, he could eat it every night, but he usually prefers pepperoni or sausage, nothing fancy. I was surprised he thought “outside of the box” and added a few of my favorite ingredients to this pizza. I know he really loves me:) He rolled out pizza dough and topped it with olive oil, mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced roasted sweet potatoes, balsamic drizzled kale, red onion, and fresh rosemary. All of the flavors melted together to create the perfect Fall pizza. You can use our favorite whole wheat pizza dough recipe or our basic pizza dough recipe.

I loved everything about this pizza. It seriously is the best! Not only is it out of this world delicious, it is also pretty. I love the Fall colors. It is perfect for Halloween too. If you are looking for a festive, fun, and fantastic tasting Halloween dinner, make this Sweet Potato Kale Pizza. I am hoping Josh will make it again..and soon! Maybe I should be lazy more often:)

Sweet Potato Kale Pizza Recipe on One of my all-time favorite pizzas!

Sweet Potato Kale Pizza with Rosemary & Red Onion

Yield: 1 pizza

Cook Time: 10-15 minutes


Your favorite pizza dough-we like this pizza dough recipe
1 large sweet potato, thinly sliced, about 1/4 inch thick
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, divided
Salt and pepper, for seasoning potato slices and onion
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups chopped kale
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon, freshly chopped rosemary


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the sweet potato slices and red onion slices in a bow and toss with 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place on a large baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are soft and tender. Make sure you turn them once during the 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool while you prepare the pizza dough.

2. Turn the oven to 500 degrees F or as high as your oven will go. If you have a pizza stone, place the pizza stone in the oven to get hot. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough, using a rolling pin. Roll it out to about 3/8 of an inch. Place the pizza dough on a pizza peel or pan that has been generously coated with corn meal. Lightly brush the dough with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. In a small bowl, toss the kale with balsamic vinegar. Top the pizza dough with mozzarella cheese, sweet potato slices, kale, red onion slices, and fresh rosemary.

3. Place the pizza in the oven-directly on the pizza stone, if using one, or on the oven rack. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until pizza crust is golden and cheese is melted. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes before slicing. Slice and serve warm.

    I recently tried sweet potato on pizza and loved it! This sounds fabulous.

  6. Heather (Heather's Dish) — October 28, 2011 @ 8:02 am

    way to go josh! this looks amazing…i don’t always love kale, but throw it on a pizza like this and i’m all in!

  7. Bev Weidner — October 28, 2011 @ 8:03 am

    OMGYUUUUUM. I just made something really similar to this! Only I used butternut squash instead of sweet potato.

    But good heavens, my next pizza will be DRENCHED in sweet potatoes. Not that sweet potatoes really “drench” anything.

    I’m tired.

  10. baker street — October 28, 2011 @ 8:22 am

    i love thin crust pizzas! Your pizza looks delicious! Love that you added kale and rosemary!

  11. Chris @ TheKeenanCookBook — October 28, 2011 @ 8:55 am

    Yum! Home made pizza was always our go to those first few months with Baby Boy too – I’d make the dough ahead of time and toss it in the oven when I got home from work. Rachel would always hit that afternoon slump too. Hang in there! As little man sleeps more through the night you’ll start to feel like a human again :)

  12. Kelley — October 28, 2011 @ 9:11 am

    This has my name written all over it! Seriously i could probably eat the whole thing myself. Nice work Josh!!!

  13. Cookin' Canuck — October 28, 2011 @ 9:12 am

    This sounds like such a flavorful (and healthy – yay) pizza. Josh is definitely thinking out of the box and I’m sure you’re loving the results.

  14. jenna — October 28, 2011 @ 9:17 am

  16. Toni — October 28, 2011 @ 9:36 am

    Thank you for posting this…I have all of these ingredients in the fridge as we speak!! I was just thinking…what am I going to do with this kale. LOL

  17. Melissa @ Baking For The Boys — October 28, 2011 @ 9:40 am

    That is so sweet! I need to branch out in my pizza flavors. I make a cheese pizza once a week-mainly for my three year old, but the hubs asked if I could make something other than cheese next week. :)

  18. cassie//bake your day — October 28, 2011 @ 9:51 am

    Ooo, I love the kale and sweet potato combination. This looks wonderful!

  19. Mari @ Mari's Cakes — October 28, 2011 @ 9:57 am

  21. Natalie A — October 28, 2011 @ 11:01 am

    This is so weird. I need groceries… bad but I have just these ingredients. Saturday breakfast…or lunch, I think so!

  22. Gina @ Running to the Kitchen — October 28, 2011 @ 11:04 am

    Did he take the pictures of it too, b/c that’s true love right there. 😉
    Saw this on instagram and was immediately jealous of your meal.

    This pizza looks amazing. I can’t wait to try it!

  24. Amber, RD — October 28, 2011 @ 12:28 pm

    That pizza looks so good! And it came just in time. I have been chronicling in my blog about my attempts to use up these two, giant, sweet potatoes our neighbors gave us. I have already made your sweet potato biscuits which were fantastic. I am definitely going to have to try this pizza.
    Thanks for sharing!

  25. Mary Beth — October 28, 2011 @ 12:28 pm

    What an awesome pizza! It was also very sweet of Josh to make dinner for you :).

  28. susan — October 28, 2011 @ 3:34 pm

    I keep telling my kids they need to stay in school until 5pm. 3pm is my nap time and gathering from one school to the next is not where I want to be at that time! Pizza looks yum!

  36. Emily — October 28, 2011 @ 6:00 pm

    What a sweetheart Josh is! But I know you’re working hard too, so I’m glad he’s there to help out. I have a whole file devoted just to pizza recipes. This is now filed and on our menu for next week!

  37. Brooke @ Food Woolf — October 28, 2011 @ 6:39 pm

    This looks like the perfect easy recipe to make when you’re new-baby-exhausted. I’ll be sure to bring this one over to my friend when she’s in the first few weeks of baby-dom.

  38. Lana @ Never Enough Thyme — October 28, 2011 @ 6:59 pm

    Looks delicious!

  39. Now if only I could get my husband to make me a beautiful pizza like this!

  40. CouponClippingCook — October 28, 2011 @ 7:57 pm

    This is such a unique combination of ingredients…and how pretty this is for the fall! or anytime for that matter. Love the idea of sweet potatoes. Looks delicious.
