I am in love with kale lately and this kale goat cheese pizza is the best thing I have came up with in a long time.

At last a new post…boy is school kicking my behind…I hardly got time to breath these days!!

This is the first time I have used fresh kale and fresh tomatoes to make pizza, and oh boy, for sure it is not going to be my last. I just love how this kale goat cheese pizza turned out. My kids even loved it.

I actually used my normal baking cookie sheets instead of the pizza stone and the dough turn out perfect if not better. I was really pleased with the results to say the least.

I normally get my pizza dough already made from Trader Joes as they have whole wheat pizza dough in the cheese section. You can also make your own but I have found out that this is a much quicker method for me nowadays that I am so busy.

There are endless variations for making pizza and for sure I am going to start experimenting much more. My kids love pizza so I am going to take advantage and loaded up with veggies and get creative with it.

Well I hope you like this kale goat cheese pizza. It is nothing but delicious and super tasty.

Enjoy!

This is the before and after baking the pizza. My took about 20 minutes. After 15 minutes just keep an eye on it. Baking time might be slightly different for you depending on the oven.

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 12 slices

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups fresh kale, chopped
  • 5 oz goat cheese
  • 2-3 tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 lbs mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • prepared whole wheat pizza dough, or store bought
  • 1 lb tomato sauce, any favorite kind

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400F.

On a flat surface, like your kitchen counter, place some whole wheat flour to prevent the dough from sticking. Roll out your pizza dough with a rolling pin in a rectangular shape and place the pizza dough onto the the rectangular baking cookie sheet making sure you reach the edges. My cookie sheet dimensions were 16.5 x 11.38 x 1 inches. Repeat this with the second pizza dough.

Divide the sauce among the two pizzas making sure to spread the sauce to the edges. Divide the shredded mozzarella cheese between the two pizzas and top with the chopped kale and tomatoes followed by the goat cheese.

Bake the pizzas in the preheated oven for 16-18 minutes. When baked, top the pizzas with some chopped red pepper flakes if desired.

  1. Can’t find kale at this time of year…except the frozen one. Your pizza looks fantastic!

  2. This looks amazing and I love the combo! Do you make your own pizza dough and if so, do you freeze extra for later use?

  3. I love using fresh tomatoes on pizza! This pizza looks great!

  4. This looks fantastic. My type of food. Can’t wait to try.

  5. Hi,great pizza. You mention chicken in your first paragraph, is that part of this recipe?

  6. Looks awesome! Any tips to how to not let your pizza crust get soggy from the moisture of the tomatoes and kale? I’ve made pizza with fresh tomatoes and spinach and the moisture made my pizza crust so soggy!

    • Hey sorry for the delayed response. I have found that kale doesn’t make the pizza soggy at all. It kind of gets crunchy. The tomatoes is a different story. I think cutting the tomatoes into wedges instead of slices helps the pizza from getting that soggy or at least that is what I have noticed. They did generate some liquid but not so much to make the pizza soggy. Spinach is very watery so that is why I never use fresh spinach on pizza. If I do is frozen and I make sure I squeeze the liquid off before adding to the pizza. I hope this helps.

  7. I love love love these toppings! Want to make a pizza just like this soon.

  8. Myriam, I LOVE this recipe cause kale is my favourite green! I add kale in almost everything ;-)
    You pizza looks great and I also love your homemade pizza dough recipe!
    Have a wonderful day!

  9. Kale on pizza is the best, I love how it gets super crispy. The cheese combination is great too!

  10. I also see chicken in the second paragraph of the “directions” it says: “Place the chicken in a microwavable plate and microwave for 6-8 minutes or until almost cooked. It will get throughly cooked in the pizza don’t worry if you see some raw pieces. Shred the chicken and mix with 1/4 cup of the chipotle sauce. Set aside.” Just FYI :)

    Trying this recipe tonight… sounds delicious!

  11. This is on our menu for the week! I think your nutritional facts need to be adjusted, though, because with my calculations there are 11 g protein, 6 g fat, and 53 g carbs. I am using part-skim mozzerella, so that may be the fat difference. But other than that, I’m not changing much else. I’m excited to try this, though! Sounds yummy.

  12. Just realized I actually forgot to put the mozzarella into my calculation! That made the difference. Sorry about that!

  13. Can I make this without the pizza dough …. I can’t eat bread yet I had gastric sleeve surgery in jan
    Thanks

    • You could but I don’t know what you could use for the base. Maybe cauliflower crust pizza? I have never made that before though but you can search on google for a recipe :-)

  14. Hey Miryam! Loving all your recipes. :)

    I’ve really wanted to try making pizzas but haven’t been able to invest in a pizza stone. Do you think I could bake a pizza in a baking tray or is that not a possibility?

  15. Made this tonight, and my family loved it!  I did top it off with some fresh basil and reduced balsamic to add some sweetness with the sour from the goat’s milk.  It was a hit!  Thank you so much for sharing!
