#EverydayInspiralized: Spiralized Sweet Potato Noodle Pizza

We’re back with a new episode of #EverydayInspiralized, my video cooking series on my YouTube channel.

You know of the Inspiralized sweet potato noodle bun, right? Well, today, we’re making it into a pizza – with turkey pepperoni!

There’s actually a pizza bun recipe in my first cookbook (Inspiralized), but it’s vegetarian – using caramelized onions and olives as a garnish (I’m drooling just thinking about those buns!)

These pizza buns are amazing! They taste JUST like mini pizzas (kinda like bagel bites, actually), but they’re much lower in fat, calories, and carbohydrates, so waist-friendly!

Make these buns (hehe, I giggle a little every time I call them buns) for your next app-style party or, thinking way in advance, during Superbowl! They’re man-friendly for even the burliest of mans.

These buns also go well as a main dish – serve it up with a nice fluffy salad or some grilled veggies, and you have a pizza dinner that won’t leave you in a carb coma.

#EverydayInspiralized: Spiralized Sweet Potato Noodle Pizza

Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time45 mins
Servings: 4


  • For the sweet potato noodles:
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes peeled, Blade D
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • For the buns:
  • 2 medium eggs beaten
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 8 slices turkey pepperoni
  • chopped basil to garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Flick water into the skillet and if it sizzles, it’s ready. Add in the sweet potato noodles and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cover and cook, uncovering to toss occasionally, for 5-7 minutes or until noodles are softened and lightly browned.
  • Transfer the cooked sweet potato noodles in a medium bowl, allow to cool for 1-2 minutes, then add in the eggs. Toss to coat.
  • Fill four 6-ounce ramekins halfway with the noodles. Cover each with a piece of foil or parchment paper and push it so that it’s directly touching the noodles. Place a can or similar heavy item over the foil and press firmly to compress. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes so that the noodles set.
  • Then, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet. Once the oil is shimmering, add in all of the buns, flipping each ramekin over the skillet and patting the bottom until the bun falls out. If needed, do this in batches.
  • Cook for 5 minutes or until noodles set, being sure to push in any stray noodles. Then, carefully flip and cook another 5 minutes or until the bun is completely set and browned, flattening with the back of the spatula.
  • While buns cook, line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Once the buns are done, transfer them to a baking sheet and spread at least two inches apart. Smear each bun with about 1 tablespoon of the marinara sauce. Top with about 2 tablespoons of cheese per bun and 2 slices of pepperoni per bun. Place in the oven and let cook for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
  • Immediately garnish with basil and serve.

How well do these reheat? Would like to know before I make 4 servings or cut the recipe in half. Thanks!
Michele Pryse says:
I can offer you a tip: leftover spiralized mini pizzas tend to soften in the refrigerator. To restore their just-baked texture reheat in a skillet over medium-low heat until the bottoms are toasty and the cheese melts. The microwave doesn't do them any favors.
Stephanie says:
Could you create a giant "bun" by using say an 8" round cake pan so that you're making a larger pizza that you could cut into slices?
Ali Maffucci says:
That recipe is coming soon to the blog! :)
Stephanie says:
NICE!!! :)
Vickie says:
Just received my Inspiralizer today !! Can't wait to try all of these yummy recipes !!
Shirl says:
Do you know your blog advertises McDonald's. Just surprised!!!
Jill says:
Instead of potato, could you use butternut squash for the bun?
Linda Maher says:
Hi Ali, I'm writing to you from Brisbane Australia. I discovered all of this yesterday after talking to a friend on the weekend. Due to my "keen-ness" (yes that's a word haha) I purchased a spiraliser from Target. Wow!!! I used one of your recipes last night - the chicken, broccoli, pea and chick pea one. I am in love with this!!! I used to have steamed green beans with pasta sauce during the week quite a bit and I have to say I am sooooooooooo bored with it - this is like a revelation. Thanks so much :-) Linda
Meaghan says:
We're so glad you're here, Linda! And we're thrilled you're enjoying the recipes.
Jill says:
Can't wait to try this!! The Weight Watchers smart point calculation... is that for the entire recipe or per bun (four noodle buns, or just one)? Thanks.
Sara says:
I just made these for dinner and they were amazing! I cut the recipe in half to make two but accidentally added the full two eggs. Even after straining them out best I could they were delicious! I also follow you on snapchat and love all your stories :) Thanks for the great recipes!
Bunny O'Brien King says:
I will try this recipe. On another note, you are a fabulous presenter. Organized, clear presentation and delightful to follow. I need to get connected.

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
