Yellow Yam Pizza

The use of mashed yellow yam as the base for pizza toppings is a great idea, and so much healthier than regular pizza dough. Sliced frankfurters and salami provide the perfect topping ingredients.

  • 1 table spoon margarine
  • 1/2 ketchup
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 frankfurters, cut in strips
  • 3 salami slices
  • 1 sweet red pepper, cut into rings
  • 1 green pepper, cut into rings
  • 1 onion, cut into rings
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
