Grilled Chicken Cauliflower Pizza with Sweet Potato & Caramelized Onion

Grilled Chicken Cauliflower Pizza w/ Sweet Potato & Caramelized Onion

1 Cauliflower Crust Recipe (you can also use Cappello's Naked Paleo Pizza Crust)
1 Large Sweet Potato
1 Yellow Onion Chopped into half moon slices
1/2 Cup Frozen (or fresh) corn
1 Cup Chopped Kale
1/2 Cup Mushrooms, finely chopped
1 Grilled Chicken Breast
1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
2 tbsp Ghee
1 tbsp Avocado Oil
1 tbsp Chopped Cilantro (optional)
Salt & Pepper to taste

  1. In a pan, saute the onions, corn and mushrooms in the avocado oil.  Let caramelize for 10-15 minutes
  2. Add 1 tbsp of ghee and the chopped kale and cook for another 5 minutes until wilted down
  3. While the onion mixture is cooking, microwave the sweet potato for 5-8 minutes depending on size.  You want the sweet potato to be soft enough to puree.  You can also bake the sweet potato at 405 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
  4. Puree the sweet potato in a food processor or high-speed blender with the remaining 1 tbsp of ghee.  Add the red pepper flakes
  5. Spread the sweet potato mixture on top of the pizza crust
  6. Top with the onion mixture and sliced grilled chicken

Mexican Sweet Potato Rounds

This is one of my favorite go-to dinners in the winter. Inspired by the Goop recipe, It's really easy to throw together and screams comfort food.  I wanted to turn this one-pot skillet meal into a light and summery appetizer.
