The recipe came about mainly thanks to my husband, who's a real pizza fan. And it gets nutrient-rich sweet potatoes into a meal, which I love. It always leaves you wanting more. —Libby Walp, Chicago, Illinois

  • 1 medium sweet potato (about 10 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
