Tips & Notes:
DO NOT overbake the sweet potatoes, they should be tender and firm.
The baking time depends on the thickness of the sweet potato rounds.
Make sure you slice the sweet potatoes equally thick for even cooking.
Step by step instructions:
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
Wash and slice the sweet potato into ¼ inch thick rounds.
Add the rounds to a mixing bowl. Add salt, pepper powder and olive oil and give them a mix to coat.
Arrange the rounds on a baking tray and bake them in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the bottoms are slightly brown colored.
Remove the tray from the oven and flip all the slices.
Bake them again for another 5-7 minutes or until slightly browned and cooked.
(If you are doing meal prep, you can cool them at this stage and store them in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.)
Spread a teaspoon of sauce on each slice evenly.
Top them with your favorite toppings and sprinkle some salt and pepper.
Top them with some grated mozzarella or cheddar cheese.
Finally, sprinkle some dried oregano or basil on top.
Bake them for 5-8 minutes or until the cheese melts.
Serve & enjoy!
