Delicious Cheesy Air Fryer Pizza Sweet Potato Slices - because all the pizza lovers out there should turn everything into Pizza.
Some of my best creations come out of those moments where you are stood in your kitchen looking for inspiration for something for lunch or dinner, spot an ingredient to use and viola away you go.
With my air fryer already on the counter and a sweet potato in my pantry I was really craving something delicious with melted cheese.
Everyone is crazy over sweet potato toast right now, and rightly so, they are a great alternative to a base for bread for all your usual toppings. So why not use them for the base of a pizza?
and there we have it, Air Fryer Pizza Sweet Potato Slices was decided.
Air Fryer Sweet Potato
Cooking sweet potato in the air fryer is so simple and quick, you really only need some seasoning of choice and it's ready in minutes.
Hey I don't even bother removing the peel, it's all good fibre.
My favourite seasoning for sweet potato is always just paprika and sea salt, might sound pretty basic, but it's really the best combo. Occasionally if I want a bit of spice I might add a pinch of chilli powder or cayenne, but if they kids are eating it too, then I leave it out.
Once you have seasoned, sprayed with some cooking oil spray (Avocado is my regular choice at the moment), the Sweet Potato Slices takes about 10 minutes, which is a whole lot quicker than doing them in the oven. Gotta love an Air Fryer.
All that's left to decide is the toppings which I kept to a simple margherita style pizza.
Easy Quick Syn Free Pizza Sauce
I love making up a batch of this yummy Pizza Sauce, but sometimes I just don't have the time or don't have a batch on hand in the freezer and on those days I make up this very quick and simple pizza sauce.
It uses really basic and on hand pantry cupboard ingredients, and is perfect for the sauce for these yummy Air Fryer Sweet Potato Slices.
If you have fresh herbs on hand, those are going to make the sauce taste so much better, but dried is perfectly fine too. Basil and oregano are my favourite to add to pizza sauce, I just love the flavours, but if you only have mixed herbs, use those, they will be fine and the biggest thing her is keeping this recipe as simple as possible.
Gluten Free Sweet Potato Pizza
The great thing about these Air Fryer Sweet Pizza Slices is that no wheat (gluten is used for the base), meaning they are a great gluten free pizza option for those Pizza Night Cravings.
It's just simple slices of sweet potato - genius!!

Sides for Air Fryer Sweet Potato Pizza Slices
These are perfectly delicious just as they are straight from the tray. That is exactly how the kids enjoy them.
But for when you want to add some healthy vegetables to your plate, a simple salad is the perfect option. I went for crisp romaine lettuce, baby cucumbers, radishes and red onion.
Leftovers are great warmed up for breakfast too with some baby spinach and a fried egg - just saying!!

- 1 tbs of tomato paste
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 tsp of dried basil

- ¼ tsp of onion powder
- Slice the sweet potato into rounds, leave skin on (approx 1.5cm thick), which should give you about 8 rounds (4 per person)

- Preheat air fryer to 190c/375f for a couple of minutes
- Add half the slices to the air fryer and air fry for approx 10 minutes, should be lightly golden and slightly softened. Start checking from 8 minutes.
- Repeat with the other half of slices.
- While the final rounds are finishing, mix together the ingredients for the pizza sauce.
- Spoon sauce onto the rounds and top with the mozzarella.
- Place the rounds back into the air fryer (4 at a time) and air fry for 1-2 minutes until mozzerella is melted and golden.
- Sprinkle with fresh basil leaves.
- Serve with choice of sides
