Crispy Kale, Garlic Scape and Grape Tomato Pizza

When I looked at the ingredients from my CSA this week, all I could think of was pizza. I think it was just meant to be. Marc purchased a Lodge Logic pizza pan for me and I have been experimenting with crust, sauce, cheese and topping ratios. This, my friends, was a great success and I could hardly wait to share it with you.

If you like crispy kale chips, you will love them on pizza. The high heat required for the pizza works beautifully to crisp the kale. After experimenting with three pizza crust recipes, I am ready to deem this my very favorite. I made a sample pizza two days before this one and went lighter with the toppings, but for this particular topping combination, it is best full of torn kale. Marc likes thick-crust pizza and sauce, I like veggie pizzas and a mozzarella/goat cheese combo, and we both were ecstatic about dinner.

If the prospect of making your own dough and sauce seems daunting, let me assure you that it comes together quite fast. If you aren’t too sure, but still want a crispy kale pizza, many grocery stores sell ready-made pizza dough and sauce. I’ve also heard that you can get fresh dough at your favorite pizza spot. I’ve never tried it, but that is a great option.
