For a long time I was not a pizza person. I still am not a huge traditional pizza person (unless there is pineapple on it) but I am a HUGE nontraditional pizza fan. Mmmmm the combinations are endless. I shared the Balsamic Necterine pizza last week and today I wanted to share my new favorite…
1 large sweet potato
1 Onion, thinly sliced
1 cup chopped kale
Milk or soymilk
1 tbsp. fresh sage, chopped
1 prepared whole wheat pizza crust (you could make your own but I LOVE the whole wheat bobeli crust)
1 cup shredded Fontina cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Stab sweet potato several times with fork and roast in oven for about 45 minutes, or until soft. Cool until potato is warm. Leave oven on.
2. While potato is baking, heat oil in pan over low heat. Add onion and a pinch of salt, and cook, stirring occasionally for 30-40 minutes. Add kale to pan and cook until tender and wilted. Remove from heat and add salt and pepper to taste.
3. Scoop insides of potato into medium bowl and mash; add milk, sage, and salt and mix until smooth. Spread mixture onto pizza crust.
4. Top with kale and onion mixture, and then add cheese on top. Bake pizza in oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until kale begins to crisp and cheese melts.
