Sweet Potato and Bacon Pizza, Your New Favorite!

Two summers ago we stayed in Falmouth, MA for our annual Cape Cod family vacation. One night we ordered pizza from a restaurant called Stone L’Oven and every last pizza was delectable. My favorites were the fig and prosciutto pizza (which I already created a recipe for) and a wonderful sweet potato pizza. Nate’s cousin Sara and I went back and forth endlessly about which one we liked more. In the end we couldn’t decide, they were both amazing!

I have finally recreated the sweet potato pizza in my own kitchen and it was delicious! This pizza has all kinds of wonderful ingredients, from salty bacon and gorgonzola cheese to sweet caramelized onions and sweet potatoes. Top it all off with a balsamic glaze and you’re in heaven!

A note on the balsamic glaze – I used to make it myself until I discovered STAR’s Modena Creamy Balsamic Glaze. Their glaze is the perfect consistency for drizzling on pizza, so that’s what I use now. I highly recommend it.

Sweet Potato and Bacon Pizza
This pizza is the perfect combination of salty and sweet!
  • Pizza crust of your choice (I use this recipe or good naan bread for my crust)
  • olive oil
  • 1 fresh garlic clove per pizza you make
  • caramelized onions
  • fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced (regular shredded mozzarella cheese works, too, but I love fresh)
  • gorgonzola cheese, small chunks
  • sweet potato, cubed
  • bacon, cooked and chopped
  • fresh spinach
  • salt and pepper
  • balsamic glaze (if you want to make your own, click here for instructions. STAR makes a bottled balsamic glaze that I love - click here for more info.)
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Toss cubed sweet potatoes in olive oil and sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer on a cooking sheet and roast for about 20 minutes, until soft.
  3. Roll out pizza crust then brush on a thin layer of olive oil across the surface. Push fresh garlic clove through a garlic press then spread with your fingers over the oiled crust. Top pizza with caramelized onions, gorgonzola cheese, spinach, sweet potatoes, and bacon. Finish with mozzarella cheese.
  4. Bake pizza how you normally do it for your crust recipe.
  5. Remove from oven, sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper then drizzle with balsamic glaze. Serve!
