If you are still reluctant to try kale chips, might I suggest this less intimidating kale pizza? Similar to chips, the kale is chopped small and rubbed with olive oil then baked until crispy at the edges. However, instead of ending there, it is paired with salty goat cheese and served on top of a pizza crust. This make an excellent appetizer for the adventurous or vegetarian.
Crispy Kale and Chèvre Pizza(serves 4)
Oil pizza sheet well and form dough onto sheet. Heat oven to 450F. Use one tablespoon of the olive oil to coat the pizza dough.
Wash kale thoroughly and spin until very dry. Chop into bite sized pieces (think 1" square). Toss kale with remaining olive oil and sprinkle thoroughly with salt. Spread over pizza. Drop goat cheese in little blobs all over pizza. Sprinkle with chill flakes. Transfer to the oven and bake for 5 minutes, turn and bake for another 5-8 minutes.
