My kids are obsessed with flatbreads. They love them for lunches, for scooping up curry and as pizza bases! These 3 ingredient sweet potato flatbreads are delicious!
Perfectly pliable, they bend and flex and are as good for taco tuesday as they are for turning into a mini pizza! The sweet potato takes them to a new level of tasty, and they stay bendy and easy to use even after refrigeration.
I hate it when I make flatbreads and they don't bend! Seriously. It's a deal-breaker!
Why sweet potato?
Well apart from the fact that its a veggie and therefore you are making healthier flatbreads than with just flour, there is also the fact that it is delicious!
Are they difficult to make?
I design my recipes for simplicity and these are no different, plus by making 10 flatbreads at once, you can pop them in the freezer. This means you will always have some 3 ingredient sweet potato flatbreads ready for lunches or quick pizzas.
How do you use flatbreads for pizza?
Just top with your favourite ingredients as though it were a pizza base and bake or grill until the cheese has melted! Using these flatbreads for the base is super convenient as it means the base is already cooked through, so no need to worry about the base not crisping up when cooking.
