Healthy Sweet Potato & Arugula BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe

We love pizza!! Life should be enjoyed!! Eating great food is apart of living an enjoyable life. You can be healthy and lean while enjoying all the food you love. By making simple ingredient choices – swopping out plain ingredients and replacing them with more nutritious options.

We can’t imagine a life without pizza, so we’re going to share some of our healthy alternative pizza base recipes. Now you can enjoy pizza without feeling that heavy, boated or lethargic sensation afterwards. Our bases also pack an extra nutritious power punch…

Give our SWEET POTATO-ARUGULA pizza recipe a try and let us know what you think.

Base Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sweet potato, boiled or steamed
  • 2 cups of Arugula salad (baby spinach or kale works too)
  • 100g mozzarella (grated or shredded)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. Chili Powder
  • 1 tbsp. Chia seed powder
  • 1 tbsp. Flax Meal (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. Psyllium Husk Powder (optional)

Cooking Directions:

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Just boil or steam the sweet potatoes (let them cool down). First add the arugula salad, eggs, olive oil & spices first into the food processor and mix thoroughly. Secondly, add the sweet potatoes, mozzarella cheese & chia seed powder. If you need more fibre in your diet (like me), then add some flex meal & psyllium husk powder, as your last ingredients into the food processor.

Then form your dough into a ball. Wet your hands slightly, so dough doesn’t stick in your fingers when you’re forming it. Place the balled up sweet potato & arugula ‘dough’ onto baking paper and put another sheet of baking paper on top of it to roll it out. Keep rolling until you have flattened the dough ball evenly to the thickness you like… I like it super thin & crunchy.

Once rolled remove the top sheet of baking paper and put your crust with the bottom sheet of baking paper on a baking tray and bake it for 30min.

While the sweet potatoes crust bakes for 30min, prepare toppings

Topping Ingredients:

  • Shredded rotisserie chicken
  • Slice onion
  • Chopped green & red pepper in tiny little squares
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese

Remove pizza crust from oven, spread a thin layer of barbecue sauce evenly over the warm crust. Then another layer of the tomato sauce. Top with mozzarella cheese. Add chicken, peppers, and onion on top of cheese. Drizzle a bit more barbecue sauce over the pizza and sprinkle with more mozzarella cheese

Bake 7-10 more minutes, until cheese is melted and crust turns golden brown.

Remove from oven and garnish with coriander if desired.

Slice and enjoy!
