Sausage and Kale Pizza


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.

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

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.
