Recipe: Quick and easy dairy-free kale pizza for one

pizzaWow… that blog title makes this recipe sounds incredibly bland, boring and depressing. Dairy-free kale pizza? For one? Like, why even bother, right?

I assure you it’s actually really good and a great quick and nutritious meal for people who can’t have dairy (but can have gluten) and LOVE pizza. This version is vegan, but you could add any topping you want. I love the crispy baked kale on top. I eat this for dinner at least twice a week when I need something quick and easy.

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole wheat Greek-style pita – make sure you read the label; the only ingredients on it you should see are yeast, flour, olive oil and salt. If you had some time on the weekend, you could even make it yourself.
  • 1 1/2 tbsp organic pizza sauce or tomato paste – I like Eden Organic.
  • 1 cup of kale
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/2 cup red pepper sliced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms sliced

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Top pita bread with sauce, kale, mushrooms, peppers, and nutritional yeast.
  • Bake pizza on a tray in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Cut up and eat!
  • Glass of wine optional but recommended.

What else would you put on this pizza? What are your favourite pizza toppings? Do you have any good dairy-free pizza recipes to share?
