Last Night’s Dinner | 01.31.12

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
Olive oil
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.

Original recipe found here.

  5. This looks insanely delicious. BOOKMARKED.

  6. Wow. This looks incredible! I’m definitely bookmarking this for the next time I make pizza.

    oh boy…this one’s a keeper. Looks scrumptious!

  13. I recently stumbled across your blog and I’m so happy that I did. So refreshing and authentic. LOVE IT! Just like I’m 99.94287383% sure that I would LOVE this pizza. Ah! Amazing looking.

  14. I love that you post such yummy vegetarian meals!! I’m trying to cook more and getting inspiration from where ever I can ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. oh man, oh man, i don’t know why i hadn’t thought to pair kale & sweet potato on a PIZZA myself! this looks delicious.

  16. Oh my goodness Jen, this looks AMAZING! I never would have thought to put sweet potato on a pizza! Delish! Will be making this soon!

  17. Considering I find every excuse to have sweet potato I will have to try this! Looks so good…

  18. Melted fontina is pretty delicious. At the end of the summer when the tomatoes were ballin’, I made a galette with a flour/corn meal combination and used carmelized onions, fontina and cherry tomatoes. It was amazing. I’d share the recipe but for some reason I didn’t save it. I think I’ll give this a try with some spinach. Thanks!

  19. I absolutely want to try this recipe! I love how there is no tomato sauce and I’ve never had kale but you just convinced me to try (I wonder what it’s called in French…).

    I’m thinking it would make a great tapas for a cocktail I’m having next week… Y U M !

  22. Ok, I’m just putting it out there: pineapple on pizza is fundamentally wrong. There, I said it. This on the other hand, looks bloody amazing and is such a good idea! Will def have to give it a whirl…

  23. Oh my! Did you read my tweet last week that I needed a good pizza w/ kale recipe!? ๐Ÿ™‚ Yay–this one looks AWESOME!! Can’t wait to try it.
