Kale + Sundried Tomato + Kalamata Olive Pizza

I think that I make this at least once a week… it’s soooo good! The crust is made from almond flour, so it is higher in protein and has a low glycemic index (how fast foods are converted to sugar in you body- low GI allows for less of a sugar high and crash). Kale of course is my all time, absolute favorite! And the mix of sundried tomatoes and kalamata olives create a sweetness and saltiness that is undeniably tasty. Ok… now I have to go make this- I am drooling over here! haha Oh, and if you like cold pizza… this will be your new fav!

  • 1 jar sundried tomatoes

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

  3. Spray a deepdish pizza pan (or you can use a regular pizza pan) with coconut oil

  4. With your hands, spread the dough to fill the pizza pan

  5. Bake the dough for 20-25 minutes- just until the dough starts to become firm and slightly golden

  6. Remove the pizza crust from the oven

  7. Spread a decent amount of sauce over the crust (I like a lot of sauce on my pizza)

  8. Sprinkle the nutritional yeast over the pizza sauce as you would regular cheese. I also like a lot of nutritional yeast

  9. Tear the kale leaves off into medium sized pieces and spread over the surface of the pizza 

  10. Cut the sundried tomatoes into desired size (easier for eating), add to pizza

  11. Add the kalamata olives

  12. Return the pizza to the oven until the kale starts to crisp up, 10-15 minutes

  13. Let the pizza stand for about 5 minutes before cutting (if you can wait that long! haha)
