Enter kale and sweet potato pizza, a riff on this recipe.
Before you proceed, let it be known that while John and I loved it, the girls would have preferred yummy, boring cheese pizza, but what do they know?
-Your favorite pizza dough recipe (I used 50/50 mixture of white and whole wheat flour)
-2 sweet potatoes, sliced thinly (I use a mandoline slicer) tossed with 2-3 tsp. olive oil and a hearty sprinkling of sea salt. Spread in a single layer on cookie sheet and oven-bake at about 400 degrees 'til centers are soft and edges are lightly golden crisp (in my oven, this only takes 10 minutes or so for thin slices)
-2 onions, sliced into thin rings and caramelized with 2-3 tsp. olive oil 'til sweet and golden brown. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
-6-7 cloves fresh garlic, minced, and added to onions for last several minutes of cooking until soft
-several generous handfuls kale, torn and ribs removed, tossed with 1 tsp. olive oil, 1 tbsp. or so balsamic vinegar, and a hearty pinch of sea salt
Onto your unbaked pizza crust, spread the caramelized onions, spread the kale, layer the sliced sweet potato slices, and top with shredded mozzarella cheese before baking as you usually do. (High heat oven, baking stone, cookie sheet...you pick!)
I had intended to add some ground rosemary to this, also, but I plumb forgot. Next time I will, because (sorry, girls) I will be making this again!
