As promised, it’s the healthy pizza recipe with more creative toppings for the absolutely and totally miraculous low-carb, high-protein homemade pizza dough! Sweet potato, brussels sprouts, wilted kale, and Aleppo oil. This pizza is not only filled with amazing flavor, but is also just packed with nutrients.
Rather than a traditional red or white sauce, this healthy pizza recipe uses mashed sweet potatoes with brown butter and rosemary. Tons of flavor plus the powerfully healthy nutritional benefits of beautiful and creamy orange sweet potatoes. Bright red onions get lightly charred under the broiler, and the kale is tender from massaging it with a little salt and olive oil, rather than from serious cooking. If you want the benefits of raw kale, you can add it after the pizza is removed from the oven. The brussels sprouts can easily be cooked right on the pizza, but if you want that bright green color, the best idea is to blanch and refresh the leaves quickly. (Add them to boiling salted water for a few seconds, and then move them right into an ice bath. Be gentle with them, though if it’s the color you’re after. Brussels sprouts leaves bruise easily!)
The crust here for this healthy pizza recipe is the same crust we used for the phenomenally cheesy mushroom and pancetta pizza with fresh herbs and homemade tomato sauce. It’s an absolute miracle of a crust: almost no carbs, sky-high protein, and totally made possible with SunWarrior protein. This stuff really is special; I have never found a protein powder better for adding to recipes! Light, gentle, and low calorie, gluten-free, plant-based, and gmo-free, and all with a lovely mild flavor and only three easy to understand ingredients! I’m currently adding this stuff to everything!
