classy pizza

There is a restaurant in Harvard Square called Veggie Planet that I snubbed for years because it is in a basement and one time I looked down and there was no one there. Then one of my favorite people in the world convinced me to go-- and-- lo and behold, it is one of those super feel-good happy hippie places that makes me put moving to vermont much higher on the list of priorities. They have a couple different kinds of iced tea and the food is not only super delicious but also CHEAP.

This pizza is totally stolen from them, but with love, in that vermonty-sharing is caring kind of way.


pizza dough
1 sweet potato
log of goat cheese
1 sweet onion

OK-- Preheat the oven to 450.

Chop the sweet potato into thick rounds and boil until soft-- like 15 minutes?
In the meantime, chop then onion and fry it up until it's carmelized, but not quite blackened. Still has to go in the oven.

Now stretch out your pizza dough, put it on a baking sheet. Put the sweet potato rounds on in some kind of decorative folk-art like pattern and then crumble on the goat cheese and spoon those onion on there, too. How can this not be delicious? Oh, it can't. It is the best pizza in the world. 20 minutes in a 450 degree oven, this baby is unstoppable.
