Sweet Potato, Chickpea & Caramalized Onion Pizza

Posted in Food with tags , , , , on August 2, 2009 by jwshay

I had some left over pizza dough in the freezer so I decided to put some stuff on it.  Starting from the base up:


  • Canned Tomatoes (Drained)
  • Garlic
  • Red Wine Vinegar
  • Dried Oregano

To make the sauce put everything in a pan with some olive oil.  Red wine vinegar can be overpowering so I only used a very small amount.  The oregano was a bit wierd.  When I was making this I didn’t know what was going on top.  It’d work fine with something a bit more traditional but its not going in if I make this one again.

Stuff on top:

  • Onions ~ 3-4
  • Sweet Potato
  • Chickpeas
  • Brown sugar
  • Cumin
  • Coriander (Fresh & Ground)

Slow cook the onions in a big pot until they start to caramalize.  You can look into how you’re meant to do this.  I never seem to have a problem with it.  My basic formula is lots of time plus low heat – something always happens eventually.  Everything else minus the fresh coriander was then added in no particular order.  I don’t have an oven at the moment so the sweet potato was cut up small enough to be fully cooked before it was thrown on the base.


Put everything on the base and cook in the oven.  Or if you happen to be me and your oven is cactus, use an elaborate system of switching between the stove top and grill.  Coriander goes on last to garnish.  Lime would probably taste good if you had some.
