Pizza with Kale, Rosemary, and Feta

I had some kale remaining from what I bought at Winter Fare. Here I combined it with a few other reliable winter ingredients (onions, garlic, and cheese), plus some rosemary from my potted plant. Dried rosemary isn't generally worth the bother, I think, and fresh stuff from the store can be so expensive (not to mention not in season locally right now!). But potted rosemary is easy to care for and gives you a great supply year round.

Olive oil
1 medium onion, sliced
6 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups chopped kale
2 tsp minced fresh rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste
1 14-inch pizza crust
3/4 cup tomato sauce of your choice
2-3 oz. crumbled feta
2-4 oz. shredded mozzarella

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Sautee the onion and garlic in olive oil until the onion turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the kale and rosemary and continue to saute until the kale is nicely wilted. Remove from heat.

Paint the pizza crust with a little olive oil, then spread with the tomato sauce. Top with the kale mixture. Sprinkle feta over this, then top with the mozzarella.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.

Serves 3-4.

I made this last night with a few adjustments but it was great. I didn't have rosemary, and we like spice so I used red pepper flakes with it. I also did need to steam the kale a bit with a splash of water and a lid on the pan. Other than that it was great!

I bought kale the other day after reading the health benefits of it. I first made cannellini beans winth chicken sausage and kale. DH suggested a pizza using kale, and we had never heard of that. Today I wanted to do just that, and did a google search and came across several recipes, and found yours.

We have had our pizza and we love it. I didn't follow your recipe to the letter, but I can tell you that we will definitely be making pizza with kale in the future.

Life is all about learning, growing and enjoying. Thank you for putting your kale recipe out here.
