  • 2 cups kale washed, dried, and shredded into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts

  • pizza dough for one large pizza (12 inches)


  • Preheat oven to 450 F.
  • In a large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add kale and saute until it is a dark green color and starts to become limp. Remove from heat. Add pine nuts to the pan and cook until lightly toasted. Remove from heat.
  • On the pizza dough, distribute the kale evenly. Mix together the nutmeg and ricotta. Add small dollops of the ricotta all over the pizza. Sprinkle with pine nuts and mozzarella.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly and the crust is golden.
