Kale pizza

kale pizza

This is my favorite pizza to make, it is so fast, and easy to make. I probably make this pizza 3-4 times a week! It’s gets a little out of hand, but luckily everyone around here likes it, so I dont get any complaints!

I first tried a kale pizza at a fabulous restaurant in San Diego called True Foods Kitchen, in the Mission Hills Mall. This place is to die, they make there own season sodas, everything is fresh, and local. They have mint water for you while you wait for a table! The first time I ate there I sat at the bar and scanned the menu, to my excitement there were many items I could have, gotta love restaurants that make it easy with the V and GF next to items. It didn’t take me long to be sold on the kale pizza, I accompanied it with a strawberry rhubarb soda. It was so delicious !

But at $12 plus the $3 for the soda, Its not a lunch I could have on a regular basis so I sought out to make my own, and for about $2-$3 a pizza (depending on the crust I use) this gives me the opportunity to have it as often as I like.

For this pizza I used Whole food rice pizza crust they are perfectly sized personal pizzas, they come in a pack of two for 3.99. They are in the deli section by the pizza counter, or I have seen them by the cheese. If you cant find them ask the deli counter for them and they can get them from the back (if they get them from the back they will be frozen, but they defrost fast)

For the sauce I used a pasta sauce I had made earlier in the week, it was just a traditional pasta sauce from simply organic

** recently I tried this recipe but I used a spicy hummus i had from fresh and easy, I spread a thin layer as the sauce..It was AMAZING it gave it a cheesy taste that was unbelievable
