Yields4 Servings

Pizza with Caramelized Shallots, Kale, and Tomatoes

 1 pizza crust (see my bread machine pizza dough recipe)
 1 tbsp avocado (or olive) oil
 1 cup shallots, thinly sliced
 ¼ tsp fine sea salt
 2 tsp honey
 ½ bunch kale, tough stems removed and leaves chopped
 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
 ½ cup feta cheese (skip or use sheep/goat milk cheese to make dairy-free)
1

To prepare toppings, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add sliced shallots, sprinkle with salt and honey, and stir. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes, until brown and caramelized. Add chopped kale to skillet along with a few tablespoons of water. Stir and continue to cook until kale is wilted and mixed together with the caramelized shallots, about 3 minutes. Remove pan from heat and set aside to cool.

2

When ready to bake the pizza, place a pizza stone in the oven (I highly recommend a pizza stone!) and preheat to 425°F about a half hour before you are ready to bake the pizza.

If using pizza dough instead of a prepared crust, roll dough out on a floured surface to desired shape. Crimp edges of dough with fingers to make a crust, if desired. Use a fork to prick holes in the dough prior to baking. (Optional: I like to prebake my crust for 3 minutes before adding the toppings.)

4

Onto the prepared crust, spread the kale and shallots, then the tomatoes, and then the crumbled feta cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake pizza for an additional 7 minutes (or 10 minutes total), until golden brown.

Notes:

If you are not using a pizza stone, you will want to heat the oven to 475°F, spread the dough onto an oiled baking sheet, and bake for much longer, probably around 20 minutes. But seriously, the pizza stone is well worth the investment!
