Pizza, Pizza, Pizza!

This recipe is for all the pet parents who like to celebrate their dog's birthdays! What's a birthday party without fun party food!

This pizza is made from healthy dog-approved ingredients. 

Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cubed, uncooked

  • 1/2 cup of oats

  • 1 egg

For the sauce:

  • 2 - 3 tablespoons unseasoned tomato paste

Toppings:

Choose a selection of dog friendly toppings such as

  • low fat mozzarella cheese, grated (if your dog is not intolerant to dairy)

  • chopped fresh basil

  • diced cooked chicken

  • diced bell peppers

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper

To Make the Crust 

  1. Place cubed sweet potato and oats in a food processor and whizz together until a fine meal-like texture is formed.

  2. Add egg to the sweet potato and oats mixture and whizz until combined.

  3. Spoon mixture onto parchment lined cookie tray, and form into circles. My pizza crusts were about 10 cm in diameter and about 2 cm thick.

  4. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the edges just begin to crisp. Watch carefully because sweet potato will burn quickly.

  5. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

  6. Separating the pizza crust from the parchment paper is a bit tricky. Use a spatula to carefully lift the crust. You can also peel the parchment paper away from the crust.

To Dress the Pizza

  1. Arrange pizza crusts on a clean piece of parchment paper.

  2. Spoon tomato paste over the crust.

  3. Add toppings.

  4. Bake for a few minutes or until the cheese starts to bubble. Watch carefully since the sweet potato crust will burn quickly... although, your dog likely won't care if it's a bit burnt at the edges!

  5. Cool, slice and serve. 

  6. Pizza can be made the day ahead and stored in the fridge until party time.
