Sausage and Kale Pizza

This recipe was something we quickly threw together on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. We had a ton of kale left from the CSA and there was a chance we’d be getting more on Tuesday. Originally I thought I’d make kale brownies again, but opted to make real food instead. For some reason, when I think of kale, I instantly think of sausage. While we didn’t have any sausage on hand, we had (and still have) plenty of ground beef. The end product was actually quite delicious and super filling – definitely a man’s pizza.

  1. Looks delicious although we aren’t doing beef these days. I recently began doing kale pizzas and instead of pizza sauce, I’ve been using cottage cheese spiced up. It’s a great twist for us.
