The Kale Series, Recipe 3

Sausage and Kale Pizza Bread

1 pizza dough (either homemade or store bought, but not a rolled-out crust, the actual ball of dough)
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/8 cup Parmesan cheese
1 bunch kale
½ lb ground sausage or 2 links of sausage
2 cloves garlic
Salt and pepper
Pinch of basil (fresh or dried)

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400
  2. In a medium size skillet, sautee the sausage. If using ground, break it up, if links- cut into slices or chunks. Add the two cloves of crushed garlic.
  3. Once the sausage is two thirds of the way cooked, add in your kale, cut or broken into bite-size pieces.
  4. Once the kale is wilted slightly, and the sausage is done, remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Roll out your dough into an oblong shape. Be cautious not to roll your dough too thin, as you will need to work it a bit.
  6. Spread your kale and sausage mix down the center of your dough. Sprinkle your salt, pepper and basil on top.
  7. Top the mix with the cheese.
  8. Slowly roll the dough and mix up (like a Stromboli or a little Debbie swiss cake), taking care to seal the ends of the dough so the kale/sausage goodness doesn’t leak out.
  9. Carefully shimmy your roll onto a baking sheet that has been dusted with cornmeal.
  10. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until your crust is golden brown.
  11. Slice and serve with a light marinara for dipping if desired. We eat this as a main course with salad and another veggie, or as an appetizer solo.
