  • 1 1/2 cups Japanese sweet potatoes, peeled, cubed and steamed
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon tahini, plus more for drizzling
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt, as needed
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup vegan gouda cheese
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1/4 cup jarred or homemade vegan pesto
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 425℉ and line and prepare a greased parchment paper covered baking sheet or pizza stone.

  • Step 2

    Add steamed sweet potato, coconut flour, tahini, thyme and salt to a food processor and process until a dough forms.

    Press the crust in an even layer onto the prepared pan and bake until light golden brown, about 35 minutes.

    While the crust is cooking, marinate the strawberries. In a small bowl, add the strawberries and balsamic. Toss to combine and set aside.

    Once the crust is baked, top with gouda, arugula, vegan pesto, balsamic-soaked strawberries, avocado, toasted pine nuts, and tahini.
