Kale + pizza = best thing ever.
Kelly over at Just a Taste knows how to get my attention. She posted this recipe last month and I about jumped out of my seat when I saw it. I’ve been thinking about kale and how to use it other than just making chips. My first chip experience was a disaster and haven’t tried it since. But this? This I had to have.
I like to use my cast iron pan for pizzas. Whether it’s a pre-made or homemade crust, using the cast iron pan is the way I roll.
Slap some mozz on that crust.
Cook up some bacon and reserve the fat. Toss in some chopped up kale with the bacon and it’s fat and coat it well.
Dump that on top of the mozz, add some sliced red onion and anything else you fancy.
Bake and enjoy. I drizzled some balsamic glaze on top as soon as I pulled this out of the oven. This might be one of the best ways to sneak kale into your food. Man was this AMAZING. If you’re not the kale type, I think spinach will sub well here.
Go check out the full recipe over at Just a Taste. I’ve made a few things from Kelly’s blog and they’ve all turned out delicious. You can’t go wrong with her blog! And make some kale pizza!
i’d like to give a shout out to Kristyn for this recipe. i put a call out for suggestions for some ingredients i got from my CSA and this is what i got. peanut butter? with kale? my initial thought was, “hmmm… interesting,” and as was the reaction of a few other people when they asked me what was for dinner. my mind was set. peanut butter and kale it was. i followed Kristyn’s recipe almost to a T, making a short cut on the kale.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/3 onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1/4 cup vegetable broth or water, warmed
- 1/2 teaspoon coriander
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1 bunch kale, chopped
- half pound of pasta – medium shells
Cook the pasta according to the box directions. while the pasta cooks, saute the onions and garlic in vegetable oil. once translucent, add the kale and cover, cooking until tender and green. combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, warm vegetable broth, and spices. add the sauce and pasta once the kale is cooked.
it was simple, it was fast and it was ridiculously yummy. i suggest making this if you want to try kale or have some and don’t know what to do with it. thanks, Kristyn!!!
