Pita Pizza with Kale Pesto

Pita Pizza with Kale Pesto

Healthy and full of flavor, with homemade pesto, this is a simple and fun pizza. We use pita bread because it makes a very thin crispy crust.

2 cups mozzarella, shredded
2 whole pita bread, whole wheat, sliced in half horizontally
4 Roma tomatoes, sliced
1 cup red bell peppers, chopped small
onion, minced
3 small shallots, minced
2 cups mushrooms, sliced

5 cups, packed dinosaur kale, or regular kale, cleaned and blanched
cup packed fresh basil
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons pine nuts
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
teaspoon sea salt

  • Blend all pesto ingredients in a food processor or blender until it makes a smooth paste.
  • Spread pesto on pita halves, sprinkle with the cheese. Add mushrooms, peppers, onions, tomatoes and remainder of cheese.
  • Bake at 450 degrees for 12 minutes.

Serves: 4

Total cooking time: 30 minutes
