Sweet Potato and Rosemary BBQ pizza

I love pizza. I do not know what it is about pizza but I could have it everyday. I was in one of those moods where I wanted pizza but was not willing to go and settle for a greasy pizza. I was in the mood for something a little more healthy.

I was looking around my kitchen for possible pizza toppings and discovered that I had a sweet potato left from our food share last week and I had some fresh rosemary from this weeks food share.

Why not put the both together with a little BBQ pizza?!?!

The Ingredients:
1/4 - 1 cup BBQ sauce
1 6oz ball of fresh or frozen pizza dough (I used Gluten-Free dough from Whole Foods)
3 small onions, sliced thinly
1 TBSP Olive Oil
1 sweet potato, sliced thinly
3 TBSP fresh Rosemary
1 cup RAW cheddar cheese
Sea Salt, if needed

The Directions:
For Frozen Dough: Follow the direction on the package for thawing.
Preheat over to 350 degrees.

Caramelize the onions in Olive Oil and set aside until cooled.

On a dusted counter knead dough until firm. On a greased, or sprayed or Olive Oiled cookie sheet, spread dough out. I decided to make a square shape pizza. Brush on Olive Oil over the outer edges of the pizza.

Pour BBQ sauce on the dough and spread out evenly. Add the sweet potato and caramelized onions. Top with Rosemary and cheese of choice!

I cooked my Gluten-Free Dough for 12 - 15 minutes.

*The original recipe called for marinara sauce instead of BBQ sauce.
