Vegan Sweet Potato Pizza Bites (Gluten Free)

Vegan Sweet Potato Pizzas, Gluten Free

A 20 minute healthy after school snack. I even like them cold from the fridge. Feel free to add meltable vegan cheese before the final bake. Although I am perfectly happy with the cheesiness of nutritional yeast.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup pesto or shredded fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup marinara or pizza sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat your oven or toaster oven to 400 Fahrenheit. Slice your sweet potatoes thinly to just under a half inch thick. I cut my into small rounds cause they are cuter that way but cut them the long way if that floats your boat. 

  2. Arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for ten minutes. Flip them and bake another ten minutes. 

  3. Now smear the tops of each with a smear of marinara and then top with a smear of pesto and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast. 

    Bake another 5 minutes until slightly tender but retaining the structural integrity to hold together and be eaten like a slice of pizza. 

  4. Eat!
