Kale Pesto Pizza

+

Ingredients

Pizza

  • whole wheat pizza dough
  • 2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Kale Pesto

  • 3 cups chopped kale
  • 3/4 cup pecans
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, add kale, pecans, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Turn on the food processor and drizzle in the oil. Process until the pesto reaches your desired consistency.
  3. Prepare the pizza dough as directed.
  4. Top pizza with an even layer of pesto. Sprinkle cheese over the top. Lastly, in a small bowl, toss 1 cup chopped kale with 1 teaspoon olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. Rub the oil into the kale so it’s covered with a light, even layer. Distribute the kale evenly over the top of the pizza.
  5. Transfer to the oven, either on a baking sheet or onto your preheated baking stone. Bake until the crust is golden and the cheese on top is bubbly (about 10 to 12 minutes on a baking sheet, or as few as 5 minutes on a baking stone)
