Paleo Pizza Sweet Potato Skins

Dough isn't the only base used to make pizza, in fact Paleonewbie showed a real life turning pizza recipe out of sweet potato skins. Its a healthy fix for those on a strict diet. 


Ingredients:
Pizza Sauce (Or you can just use your favorite marinara sauce)
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1 1/2 tsp garlic
1 tsp minced onion
1 tsp ground onion
1 tbs ground oregano
1 tbs ground basil
Sprinkle of red pepper flakes, as desired
Salt & pepper to taste
Sweet Potatoes & Stuffing
4 medium sweet potatoes
1 1/2 cups of mixed chopped bell peppers
1/2 cup diced onion
Pepperoni (We used Applegate brand)
Small can of chopped olives

Directions: 
  1. Preheat oven to 375-degrees F
  2. Place whole sweet potatoes on a foil lined cookie sheet. Poke some holes in them with a fork.
  3. Bake for about 40 mins or longer until tender. You will notice they release some of their juices.
  4. If you’re making the pizza sauce, now would be a good time. Mix all of the pizza ingredients together in a sauce pan and simmer for about 10 mins until combined: Tomato sauce, paste, garlic, onion, onion flakes, oregano, basil, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Super easy. Done!
  5. Once you remove potatoes from the oven, you can now saute your peppers and onions over medium heat until onions are translucent.
  6. When the potatoes are cooled, slice them in 1/2 lengthwise and remove about 2/3 of the potato from the skins
  7. Take a spoonful of your pizza sauce and spoon into the bottom of the potato
  8. Add onion and pepper mixture
  9. Then add pepperoni and olives
  10. Put stuffed potatoes back in 375-degree oven and bake for about 10 mins (oven times may vary)
  11. Remove from oven
