Garlicky Kale and Ricotta Pizza

Garlicky Kale and Ricotta Pizza

This is not your average pizza. The garlic kale infuses a deep, rich, and savory flavor into the pizza and mixes perfectly with the slightly sweet ricotta cheese. One more slice? Yes please!

Ingredients

Metric System
Servings
  • 2 cup cheese
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 0.3 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 pizza dough
  • 1.5 qt kale
  • salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 400ºF. If your kale is still on the stem, pull the leaves from the stems and tear them into 2-inch pieces. Rinse the kale well in a colander.

    Step 2

    Place the minced garlic and olive oil in a large pot and sauté over medium heat for about one minute, or just until the garlic is soft and fragrant. Add the kale and continue to sauté for about 5 minutes, or until it has wilted. Season with a pinch of salt.

    Step 3

    Stretch your pizza dough (about 12-14") and place it on your pizza pan. In a small dish, combine the olive oil and garlic powder, then brush it onto the surface of the dough. Scatter the sautéed kale over the surface, then top with dollops of ricotta. Finally, sprinkle the shredded mozzarella over top.

    Step 4

    Bake the pizza for 15-20 minutes, or until the crust has browned, the cheese is melted, and the cheese has begun to brown on the edges. Slice the pizza into 8 pieces, and serve.
