Ingredients:
1 ball of pizza dough
flour for dusting
olive oil
salt & pepper
1 cup sweet cherries, pitted & halved
1 hunk feta, cut into small cubes (crumbled feta would work too)
handful of walnuts
For the mashed beets:
3 yellow beets, peeled & cubed
1 sweet potato, peeled & cubed
1 apple, peeled & cubed
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup Greek yogurt

 

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 450° F. Toss the beets, sweet potatoes and apples in some olive oil & salt, and lay them out on a baking sheet. When the oven is hot, roast them for about half an hour, until fork tender.

Take them out and increase the oven temperature to 550° F. Using a potato masher (or something similar), mash the vegetables with the butter and Greek yogurt, plus a little salt & pepper, until they reach your desired consistency.

Next, prepare your dough using the instructions here. When your oven is hot and you’ve pre-baked the dough, take it out and brush it lightly with olive oil. Spread an even layer of the beet mixture over the pizza, followed by the cherries, feta and walnuts.

Pop it in the oven and bake until the crust is a nice golden brown. Then take it out and enjoy!
