Individual pizzas made with Boboli crust and a savory sweet potato puree as a base produce an unusual offering at suppertime. Various toppings make this Boboli a refreshingly quick meal and a welcome change from a traditional pizza. You could also use plain foccacia bread for a similar result. Easy to prepare.
