  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200˚C, fan 180˚C. Put the frozen sweet potato and the red onion in a roasting tin and drizzle with the oil. Season with salt and black pepper and toss to coat. Roast for 15-20 mins, stirring halfway, until browned and heated through. Add the sage leaves to the tin for the last 5 mins to crisp.
  2. Put the piece of pastry onto a tray lined with baking paper. Prick the centre of the pastry all over with a fork, leaving a 1cm border. Bake for 10-15 mins until golden brown and cooked through.
  3. Season the ricotta with black pepper. Spoon onto the centre of the pastry and spread with the back of the spoon. Top with the roasted sweet potato, red onion and crispy sage. Serve with salad leaves, if you like.

Leftovers: Use leftover ricotta as an easy creamy pasta sauce, make veggie sausage rolls or spread on toast and top with fruit for a speedy breakfast.
