Crispy Kale and Chèvre Pizza

Goat Cheese and Kale Pizza

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)

1 batch pizza dough
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 cups raw kale
1/4 teaspoon salt
pinch chilli flakes
3 oz chevregoat cheese

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.

I’m pretty sure my husband would never go for this one (he adventerous but oddly weird about sauceless pizza, kale and too much goat cheese) but I think it sounds wonderful!

Has he tried the kale chips? I converted my husband. The two of us ate the pizza in the photos above in one sitting, out on the deck with a glass of rose.

We have fallen in love with Kale recently – and I am also trying NOT to eat meat – so your blog has been a real revelation for me! Thank you for all of the wonderful recipes. I can’t wait to try both the chips and the pizza. We have been oven roasting Brussel Sprouts for a couple of years now, and prior to that, I wouldn’t touch them! They are so yummy when roasted!!
Thanks again!

I use multigrain english muffins to make pizzas for myself, a childhood favorite, and for added nutrition I insert layers of spinach, chard or kale between the sauce and cheese. These kale chips would make a fun topping, maybe via a quick broil after the bake. Yummy!

Judy I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes, we also don’t eat that much meat – maybe once or twice a week? Try the chips. So good.

Namey – that sounds like a nice and easy meal! I do it too on busy days, although I use whole grain pitas.
