Cinnamon Sweet Potato Banana Pizza

Make your usual savory pie into a sweet ending this week through the Road not Processed's recipe of a Cinnamon sweet potato banana pizza. This is one healthy dessert that surely helps in digestion, energy and potassium! 

Ingredients:
Toppings:
1 cup mashed baked sweet potato, no skin
1 ripe banana
cinnamon
cacao nibs
 
Crust:
Dry:
3/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup wheat germ (I used raw wheat germ, but any should suffice)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
stevia (to taste)
Wet:
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp coconut oil
 
Directions:
1. Prepare a baking sheet/pan with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350 degrees whenever you desire (sooner, or later for the eco-conscious)
2. Mix all dry crust ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.
3. You’re going to want your coconut oil to be melted prior to mixing. Heat using your preferred method if solid. I used a small microwave safe cup and carefully heated up the oil in 2, 10-second intervals. You do not want to over heat it.
4. Mix in vanilla and egg in with the coconut oil
5. Add in wet ingredients to the dry and mix until a dough is formed
6. Lay dough on parchment paper and spread out to desired shape. I used a separate piece of parchment paper to spread out and design the desired pizza shape. (place extra parchment paper on top of pizza and using your hand, smooth out dough until flattened). You can make this as thin or thick as you want.
7. Bake for about 8 minutes or until crust is slightly cooked and sturdy
8. Take out of oven and spread on sweet potato, sliced bananas, cacao nibs and a sprinkle of cinnamon
9. Brush a little bit of coconut oil on the edges of the crust and/or bananas if you’d like. Although I didn’t partake in this step, now is the time to drizzle some honey or maple syrup on top if that pleases your taste buds.
10. Place back in oven for about 12 minutes
11. Remove from oven and place on cooling rack if you have
12. Slice into squares or your favorite shape and enjoy
13. Store leftovers covered in the fridge
