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!

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. Fabulous recipe! We all love kale but grew tired of the same ol’ recipes.

  2. I have to admit something. The smell of chorizo cooking makes me absolutely sick. I had a roommate who would make it and when she did, I’d have to leave the apartment for several hours. I got so nauseous. :( Hmm. That was totally random!

    And I don’t think I’ve ever made hash, either. I don’t even think I really know what it is. Gotta look into that!

  3. Kale and soy chorizo looks good in pictures. I did not know much of the soy chorizo but it sounds healthy since I am only aware of the meat chorizo. Perhaps I should check out the local grocery store if they have available soy chorizo. I love this recipe because I love the taste of the potatoes.

  4. That is a recipe of my own heart-yum!

  5. I never make hash at home although this looks so delicioussss. I am not much of a fake meat person but will def. check this chorizo out.

  6. Where does 480 calories come from? Break down please!

  7. I made this last night, only I used TJ’s frozen organic spinach since it was all I had on hand..also I didn’t have any ginger..and I added sauteed green pepper…it was excellent! Will try it next time with actual kale and ginger. Thank you!

  8. I just made this for lunch, and it is delicious! I swapped sweet potatoes for rosette potatoes and covered the potatoes to speed up the cooking process, but besides that, I followed the recipe. Will definitely make again. Thanks!

  9. Made this today. I added garlic, decreased the potatoes and subbed some chick peas instead.  Made an over easy egg as a topper.  Delicious!  I’m adding this to my rotation of menus.  Thanks for a great recipe!

  10. Made this today, but I swapped the Ginger for garlic, shallots, and jalapeños. I also added Sazon while cooking the potatoes. It was really good! 

  11. This recipe looks great ! I was thinking about swapping out some of the potatoes for black beans  … has anyone tried this?
