Vegan and Gluten Free Sweet Potato Flatbread RecipeThese days, everyone is looking for healthier alternatives to their favorite dishes. Pizza is number one on the list and be you gluten free or just watching your weight, pizza crust is not a friend to us. But it can be when you swap out some ingredients for plant based ones so you get a tasty, crispy crust for guilt-free pizzas, breadsticks and beyond! try this version made with antioxidant packed sweet potatoes or cauliflower!

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (skinned, cooked and mashed) (If you’d like to use cauliflower, use florets from 1 head of cauliflower, “riced” in a food processor)
  • 1 1/2 cups almond, quinoa or chickpea flour
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax seeds mixed with 4 tablespoons water until gel-like)
  • 1/2 cup shredded vegan mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well until fully incorporated.

Coat a foil lined pizza pan or baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray .

Using a spatula, spread the dough evenly into a large circle if using a pizza pan about 1/2 inch thick, or a rectangle if using the baking sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes until center is firm and edges are lightly browned.

Remove crust from oven, if making pizza, add toppings of choice, and bake for another 5-7 minutes. If using as crostini or breadsticks, remove from oven, brush with herbed olive oil or vegan butter, cut into slices or wedges, and bake for an additional 3 minutes.




  1. I seldom comment, however after reading some of the remarks on this page Vegan and Gluten Free Sweet Potato Flatbread Recipe — The Healthy Voyager.
    I do have some questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of these responses come across like they are left by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting at other online sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you post a list of every one of your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  2. This was delicious! I just found out I have many allergies and I really get bummed when people around me eat what they like and I can’t, but I finally made a pizza I could eat! Thank you so much 🙂 also, just curious what are the nutrition facts for this recipe?

  3. I am so obsessed with this bread!! I thought the cauliflower kind was perfect for pizza and the sweet potato is best on its own, as breadsticks or for flatbread sandwiches. THANK YOU!!!
