I came up with this yesterday as I was looking for an appetizer recipe yesterday! I think I might like the kale crust more than the cauliflower crust pizza!!! Kale has such a mild taste.. you hardly even know that it is in there…except for the green color 😉 This takes the quilt out of pizza – low cal and full of vitamin A, C, K and calcium! You can make this recipe as mini pizzas or as one large pizza.
Ingredients for the crust (Makes 5 mini pizzas):
2 cups fresh kale leaves, washed & trimmed
1.5 cups oat flour
1/2 cup egg whites
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1 clove fresh garlic, crushed
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 cup water
Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a food processor, process the kale and begin to add in the other ingredients. Add in the 1/2 cup water as needed (not all at once).
Mix until you get a moist desired dough consistency.
As you can see below, make into individual pizzas (or make one large pizza).
Bake this crust layer in the oven for ~10-12 minutes until hardening.
Remove from the oven and add your toppings after this is complete (My toppings included: mozzarella, tomato, tomato sauce, onion, mushroom, and pesto.)
When you have added your toppings, bake in the oven again for ~7-10 minutes and broil for the last 2 minutes (to brown the top).
