Kale Pizza

I sometimes get made fun of for my “kale obsession” by a few “kale haters” or “kale skeptics” but I love finding ways to make this nutritious leaf taste delicious. This is a vvveeeerrrryyy simple recipe for an easy delicious dinner.

Ingredients (for one small personal pizza):

1 piece naan bread (or you can make your own dough but for convenience sake I used whole wheat naan)
3 Tbsp pasta sauce
2-3 fresh basil leaves
2 small stalks kale (or one big stalk) ripped up into small pieces
4 cherry tomatoes sliced
3-4 small bocconcini cheese slices

balsamic reduction (to drizzle on top):

Basically boil 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar for 5 minutes on the stove top until it reaches a syrupy consistency. Drizzle on this pizza or anything!


1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly toast crust in the oven for 5-10 minutes until warmed and slightly brown.

2. Follow this order of ingredients to put on your pizza. Sauce, basil leaves, kale, tomato, cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until kale is slightly crunchy and tomatoes look cooked and the skin is peeling.

3. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Drizzle the balsamic reduction on top if you want a tangy kick. Enjoy and I promise you will never make fun of anyone for obsessing over kale after this pizza.

Here’s a more simple version if you prefer no kale:

But I like this one better:
