"This unusual yet tasty sweet and savory pizza is made with a curried red lentil sauce instead of tomato sauce, and then topped with a delicious mix of sweet potato, eggplant, tomatoes, garlic, onions, and spices. Try it with a thin whole-wheat crust." — FLAMINGOFLUFF

dry red lentils
1 1/2 cups
1 (1 pound)
sweet potato, cubed
1 (14.5 ounce) can
Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
1 1/2 teaspoons
salt and pepper to taste
1 (12 inch)
thin prebaked whole wheat pizza crust
grated Romano cheese
I think there is a mistake in the directions. The submitter states that she uses a "curried red lentil sauce" in place of tomato sauce but the directions call for it all to be stirred in together. I came up with nothing but mush. It still tasted good but the texture was a bit off-putting. Next time, I'll try frying up the onions, garlic, spices (which is more traditional Indian style) and add the lentils to that. Then make the sweet potato/eggplant mixture on it's own.
This made a delicious meal! However, I had issues with the recipe. First, it took the lentils 1 1/2 hours to cook. Second, the description says "red lentil sauce;" instead it's just a layer of lentils. Also, it made way too much for one pizza crust. Ate with knife and fork and it was very messy. I would make this again, but the recipe is a bit misleading.
I was looking up different ways to use up my lentils without resorting to soup again. This pizza is actually pretty tasty AFTER changing the recipe a bit. Lentils take twice as long to cook. I mixed the lentils with the other stuff cause the layer seemed pointless. Also I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting TWO pizza crusts... way too much stuff for one.
Has more fiber in it than any human would ever need; pretty tasty, but sits in the stomach like a ton of bricks.
This is great with out the crust and cheese.
Unusual and wonderful! I loved that it was vegetarian but my family is full of carnivores so I added some cubed left over chicken. I could eat the topping just on its own without the crust, it's just wonderful
Interesting way to use the ingredients in a pizza. I would make this again, but change a few things as I found it to be a bit bland and I had to add a lot of salt to it. Next time I would use a few different types of cheese and use more than the recipe called for.
one of the best recipes we've ever made! we were making this vegan and couldn't find a ready-made crust that was vegan so we substituted wheat pita bread and decreased the cooking time. came out wonderfully. takes a little work but absolutely worth it.
