Sausage and Kale Pizza

Yum

How am I going to end Kale Week?  How about kale on pizza!  Yes, indeed!  My kids and husband loved these quick little pizzas I made for lunch.  I used naan style flat bread topped it with my kale, sausage, pizza sauce and some mozzarella cheese.  Then I heated them in the oven to get crispy and make the cheese melt.   Easy, healthy and quick.  Some of the kale even got a little crispy so it provided a great texture.   So if you think kale is the last idea for a pizza topping, try this one out.



Ingredients:
1lb Italian sausage (crumbled without casing)
2 cups of shredded kale (no stems)
1 medium onion chopped
mozzarella cheese as needed
pizza sauce as needed
prepared pizza crust or naan
2 cloves garlic grated
red chili flakes to taste
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
salt and black pepper to taste


Directions:
Start to brown sausage.  Then add onion and garlic.  Saute until sausage browns.  Then add dried oregano, basil, chili flakes,  salt and black pepper.  Cook for 3-5 minutes.
Next add shredded kale and saute for 2 more minutes.  Taste for seasoning.  Add salt and seasoning as needed.

Add a light coating of pizza or jarred spaghetti sauce to pizza crust (remember this is a cooked naan or pre-baked pizza crust).  Next add the sausage and kale mixture and cover with shredded mozzarella cheese.   Bake on a baking sheet in a 425 degree oven until cheese melts and crust is crispy.  Slice and serve.  Enjoy.

  2. We're huge pizza eaters here so I bet I could get away with this, especially if I tell Dudette it's spinach instead of kale. Of course, she's never tried it so maybe it would go over well. It looks fantastic.

  4. My husband would love this. I would leave the sausage off mine for a nice lite healthy meal. I would have never thought to put Kale on a pizza, but yeah, it makes sense! Thank you for all the wonderful ideas you give us!

  13. Great way to use Kale!! I have three things I make often with kale- potato, sausage kale soup, Kale and white kidney bean pasta and everyone's favorite- kale chips but I need new recipes for kale cause we love it so! I wondered about putting it on pizza and now I have a recipe to try. The little boys I am watching stay for dinner now and I need a healthy recipe they will like. Since they go crazy for kale chips I bet they would like this pizza. Thanks!
    And I love your photos- so pretty with all the colors-great composition.

  15. Fabulous pizza Ramona! I've never used kale on a pizza, but I have made a Swiss Chard with Italian sausage and loved it. Next times I'm going to have to try it with kale and some of your seasoning. Love the addition of the pepper flakes. Delicious looking pizza! Hope you're having a great weekend!

  16. This is my kind of pizza. I love sausage and kale. We make homemade pizza probably once a week. It is always much better than the restaurant kind. Although we do get that too.

  19. I love pizza for lunch but I've never tried kale. Sausage yes, kale no. I wonder if adding it to a pizza with cheese and other goodies would make the kale go down easier. I want to like kale! It just hasn't happened yet.

  25. Kale on pizza! I'd eat kale that way, no problem. This looks really great and I like the idea of using naan as the crust. You're amazing with the way you take care of your family. They have no idea how blessed they are to have such a talented wife and mother.
