Makes: 4 to 6 servings
1 Whole Wheat Cornmeal Crust, rolled to about 16 inches, or divide into 2 to 4 smaller pizzas (recipe below)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups fresh kale leaves, chopped
¼ cup beer (ale works well)
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
Pinch of smoked sweet paprika
¾ to 1 cup barbecue sauce (I use a local sauce, Kentucky Smokin’ Grill)
4 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
4 oz. whole milk mozzarella, thinly sliced
Crushed red pepper
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring often, for about 3 minutes. Add the kale and turn to coat in the oil. Carefully add the beer. Simmer the kale 3 to 5 minutes, until it begins to wilt. Add the salt, pepper and smoked paprika.
Place the crust on a baking sheet or pizza pan that has been greased with olive oil and sprinkled with cornmeal. Spread the barbecue sauce over the crust. Sprinkle ½ of the cheddar cheese over the sauce. Divide the kale evenly over the crust. Place the mozzarella cheese over the kale and top with the rest of the cheddar cheese. Sprinkle with crushed red pepper, if desired.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cheese begins to bubble and brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool 2-3 minutes before slicing. Serves about 4-6.
