Sweet Potato Pizza Dough

Serves 2 10-12 inch pizzas | Prep Time 25 minutes | Cook Time 1 1/2 hours

Ingredients

1 ½ cups warm water (110 degrees)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 envelope (2 ¼ teaspoons) yeast
3-3 ½ cups bread flour
½ cup cooked, mashed sweet potato (about ½ of a large sweet potato)
1 teaspoon kosher salt


Preheat a pizza stone to 450 degrees.


Place the water, olive oil and honey in a large mixing bowl; stir well. Stir in the yeast and let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes, or until the yeast starts to bubble. Add 3 cups of the flour, the sweet potatoes and the salt.


Fit the dough hook on a stand mixer and knead the dough for about 5 minutes, adding additional flour, if needed. The dough should “clean” the side of the bowl.


Place the dough in a large, oiled bowl, turning once so that the top of the dough is lightly oiled. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and set in a warm, draft free area for 45 minutes to one hour, or until the dough has doubled.


Punch it down, and divide in half. Shape dough into a 12” circle. Place on a cornmeal covered pizza peel, and top with desired toppings. Slide the pizza on to the preheated pizza stone and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until the crust is browned and the cheese is bubbling.


For a special treat, top with my recipe for Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Beets and Onions.

Notes

I used this as the crust for my Double Sweets and Beets pizza. The sweet potato gives it a wonderful orange color!

I meant to say explain about the one double sweets.

Can you example more what you mean by double sweets and also give the recipe for the beet one that sounds very interesting to try it.
