Easy, Healthy Kale and Feta Pizza Recipe

First, Make the Kale Pesto Sauce

You can make pesto out of anything green. Regular pesto is usually made from fresh basil leaves. Making a kale pesto spread for this flat bread pizza builds the taste with all the same ingredients, taking this pizza to the next level.

When you cook vegetables you lose 40% or more of their health benefits.

You don't cook pesto, so you are getting the full health benefits of the raw vegetables. Give this delicious pizza a try. If you like spinach/ feta pies, you will love this one too.

Kale and Feta Pizza

Kale Pesto

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of kale pulled off the course stem (Do not use the stems, as they are bitter.)
  • 2 small green onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic (The more garlic you add the hotter the pesto will be. I put in 4.)
  • 1 slice of lemon
  • salt/pepper
  • tablespoon of basil
  • tablespoon of oregano
  • small bunch fresh parsley (Parsley is usually the main ingredient in pestos.)
  • Then if there is room, fill to the top of blender with kale.

This is very easy to make.

Instructions:

  1. You put all the ingredients into a blender or food processor.
  2. Slowly pouring olive oil, into the food processor until all ingredients grind into a paste.

TIP: Kale is from the cabbage family, so it is hard to blend up. Use a food processor if you have one because it makes this recipe way easier to prepare. Also, the longer pesto sits the better flavor it gets.

Tip: Kale pesto stays green even after freezing it in ice cube trays, unlikesome that turn brown after being frozen. This will keep for up to 2 weeks in your refrigerator.

Ingredients for Kale and Feta Pizza

  • 4 cups Kale, rip off stems and rough chopped
  • small bunch Parsley, wash and add to food processer
  • 2 green onions, chopped in half
  • 2 cloves of garlic, squashed and peeled
  • dash salt/pepper, add to food processer
  • teaspoon oregano
  • teaspoon Basil
  • cup or more Olive Oil, add to food processer until mixture turns to paste
  • 3 strips smoky bacon, chopped and fried in frying pan
  • small white onion, diced small
  • hand full Feta cheese, crumbled over pizza
  • 1 flat bread, coated on bottom with olive oil
  • table spoon Asiago cheese, grated freshly on top of pizza

Instructions for Kale and Feta Pizza

  1. Chop smoky bacon into small dice pieces and add to frying pan without any oil. Also, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Dice the white onion into small pieces and add to bacon in the frying pan. Cook both until crispy.
  3. Hand rip kale off stems (do not add stems are bitter), and add 1 cup of kale to frying pan after bacon and onions are crispy. Add salt/pepper.
  4. Add kale to frying pan and cook until it is wilted. Do not put it on flat bread raw, as it will get crunchy and burn up in the oven.
  5. Pour small amount of olive oil on one side of the flat bread, rub over the entire side, then turn it over.
  6. On the top side of the flat bread, smear on the kale pesto sauce you made (you made enough pesto for 8 pizzas), and crumble feta cheese over pesto (as much as you like).
  7. Grate the Asiago cheese across the top and put in 400 pre-heated oven for 15 minutes or until bottom is a golden brown and Asiago cheese is melted.
  8. Eat and enjoy your new found flavors of this awesome pizza pie.

        Thank you Kathryn. I use flat bread a lot for pizzas. You can put tomato paste on a flat bread with vegetables, your favorite cheese , coat the bottom with oil and even cook them until crispy in a cast iron frying pan. You cook them on the burner on low heat (3) and cover to melt the cheese at the end. These pizzas are a great Friday night snack.

        @ You are welcome always exploring. Thanks a lot for your comment.

        @You are right Careermommy. I should have thought of that myself but I had regular bacon on hand so that is what I used. Thanks a lot for your healthy input.

        suzzycue, this looks yummy and I bet it tastes delicious. I would just substitute the smoky bacon for turkey bacon, since I don't eat red meat, but I'm thinking it'll taste just as good. Thank you for this recipe.

        This looks fantastic, and it is different than any other I have seen. Thanks for sharing this with us! It's also cool that it is on flatbread, and that it is one single pizza. Sometime I'll have to buy these ingredients, and try it out!

        Thank you ChitrangadaSharan for sharing and pinning. I am starting to really love greens also. They are powerful for your health ,vegetables to learn to eat. I am even eating Kale raw now. The tip for eating it raw is to massage the olive oil into the Kale and it becomes much softer and easier to eat. I have done this and it works. Have a great day.

        Sorry to hear that Claudia Tello but this pizza would be as good using spinach or what evergreen you have, can be prepared this way with feta for a great pizza. Thanks a lot for your comment.

        I do not understand why but we don’t have kale in Mexico City. Otherwise, I would make this pizza this weekend for sure. I am a big healthy veggie pizza fan and I love adding other cheeses than the classic mozzarella.
