Kale Pizza Crust !!

Looking for a new way to get your pizza fix?! Here is a yummy alternative to the cauliflower crust. Tastes like a kale chip but with pizza toppings! Also, this got so nice & crispy & held together so well I actually was able to pick it up & eat it like regular pizza :)

Ingredients

  • 6 cups kale (washed, dried, roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup fresh parmesean
  • 1/4 cup shredded low fat mozzarella
  • 1 egg
  • Salt, pepper & garlic powder to taste
  • Drizzle of olive oil

Instructions

Heat oven to 425. Put kale in food processor & pulse until it is a very fine, rice-like consistency (my food processor is small so I did it in batches). Transfer to a large mixing owl add cheese & egg. Give a sprinkle of the seasonings, then a light drizzle of olive oil. Mix well. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (DO NOT SKIP THIS! Or it ill stick & you'll have a big mess) Dump kale mixture onto pan spreading out with a spoon so it's even. Then use your hands to press it down thoroughly. Bake for 15-20 min until lightly brown & crispy. Remove from oven & reduce heat o 400. Top with desired toppings & bake for another 8-10 min.

Tips & Bonus Information

Found a recipe on Pinterest for a spinach crust & I immediately thought of how nice a crispy kale gets in the oven, so I used that instead.
