Sweet Potato Breakfast Pizza


I often see pictures of food and then, too lazy to really read all the steps in the recipe, I make up my own version. I use what I have available and do whatever I think I need to do to get it done as fast as possible. This is one of those and it turned out really really good (they dont always).  I used our large iron skillet to cook the pizza but i would imagine a pizza stone would work just fine. (Original recipe here.)

My recipe makes one personalized sized pizza.


  • 1 Sweet Potato
  • 1 Clove Garlic, minced
  • 1/4 onion, minced
  • about 9 oz of store bought dough (about 1/2 bag) [No time for homemade.  I’m hungry]
  • a little coconut oil to grease the skillet
  • some black beans [as many as you want on your little pizza]
  • a little parsley
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • grated cheddar cheese [as much as you want]
  • 1 egg


  1. Saute the sweet potato with garlic and onion in a small pan.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large oiled cast iron pan, make dough into a pizza shape
  3. Put cooked sweet potatoes, black beans, parsley and green onions onto the dough
  4. Grate cheddar over the top
  5. Crack an egg in a dish (in case of shells or a nasty egg. You dont want this last step to ruin your dinner)
  6. Create a little nest of ingredients and pour the egg in.
  7. Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes.  I kept checking the bottom of the pizza to make sure it could stay in longer and let that guide my cooking time.
