Sweet Potato Rosemary Vegemite Pizza


  • 300 g (Around 10 1/2 ounces) *Kumera (orange sweet potato), peeled and thinly sliced
  • Garlic olive oil spray
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons VEGEMITE
  • rosemary sprigs
  • 2/3 cup grated mozzarella cheese


PLACE the potato on a paper lined baking tray and spray with oil. Bake in a hot oven 375°F for 20-25 minutes or until just tender.

SIFT together the flour, yeast, salt and sugar. Add the water and oil and stir to make dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place dough in an oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Stand in a warm place for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.

ROLL out dough on a floured surface to make a rough 20 x 30 cm rectangle and place on a large, lightly floured baking tray. Spread with VEGEMITE and then top with *Kumera Sweet Potato, rosemary and cheese. Bake in a hot oven 200°C for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through.

Serve immediately.

*Kumera has a nice sweetness, but if you can’t find it, use regular sweet potatoes or a combination of sweet potatoes and yam.
