The other day, the wife asked me to make a dish with Kale (because she so enjoyed Eileen’s dish) and I thought… hmm… what could I do that would be unexpected? Well, I ended up going with Pizza!
Thanks to JT, I started with this dough recipe. For this you’ll need:
3 1/2 cups high gluten flour
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
So, you’ll want to mix add the water, oil, yeast, salt, and sugar in a mixer with a dough fitted with dough hook until yeast has fully dissolved. Then add flour and mix on low speed until the flour and water have mixed and a stiff dough ball forms. Place in a bowl and cover… you’ll end up with something like this:
Let the dough rise in the fridge for 24 hours… and you get this…
This will allow you to make 2 twelve inch pizzas.

The sauce consisted of:
28 oz. can pureed tomatoes
2 tsp of sugar
2 diced jalapeños
1/2 clove diced shallot
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
At this point, you’ll want to heat your oven to 500. This will heat up while you toss your puree into a pan over a medium low heat. Make sure to stir in everything and let simmer for about 20 minutes once you are finished, you are ready to roll out your down and top.
I used mozzarella and sharp cheddar. Tossed it in for 10 minutes….
And it was ready to go…
Some outstanding stuff, easy to make… and above all, healthy!
