Gluten Free Sweet Potato Kimchi Pizza

The inspiration for my sweet potato and kimchi pizza comes from my year living and working in South Korea as an English teacher. This was in 2006, 3 years before the term gluten free ever crossed my lips. South Korea is magical. I boarded a plane in Manchester, England and disembarked in a completely unknown land filled with colour, excitement and culture. It’s just over five years ago now that I stepped off the bus in Guri-si and was welcomed to my new home. At that time I had no idea the part this year would play in my life but sitting here today I can’t imagine life without my memories of Seoul and the rest of this beautiful country. I met amazing friends, discovered my love for Noribang (Korean Karaoke) and ate some of the most delicious food of my life. mmm kimchi! It was also here where I met my lovely travelling companion and boyfriend John. Many Korean foods are gluten free. One day I will return on my gluten free travels to find out just how many. For now though, I’m making my own South Korean inspired gluten free dishes…

  • Chop up now partially cooked sweet potatoes into medium sizes slices and place on top
  • Cut Kimchi into smallish pieces and lay on top of other ingredients. Use as much as you like depending on how spicy you like your food to be!
