Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 25-30 min
Serves: 8 slices


Pizza crust

110 g kale, trimmed, washed (3 3/4 cup)
2 eggs, size 6
2/3 cup (55g) Gluten Free Panko Crumbs 
1/2 cup oats (optional)
1 tsp Mountain Pepper Leaf
1 cup grated cheese (140 g)
Salt, pepper

Pizza toppings

2 tomatoes
2 mushrooms
1 red onion, sliced
Cheese for topping


Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius.

In a food processor with the S blade attachment, add the raw kale, trimmed and washed. Add the eggs, cheese, breadcrumbs, oats, salt and Mountain Pepper Leef.

Process until it forms a sticky pizza dough.

Place the kale pizza dough onto a baking tray covered with baking paper.

Using your hand, press the ball to flatten and extend the dough with your finger until it forms a pizza crust of about 0.4 mm thickness, 20 cm diameter. If sticky, slightly oil your hands with olive oil.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until the kale crust is firm and starts to get brown on the sides.

Remove from the oven, add your tomato, red onion and mushrooms or any other pizza toppings you’d like, starting with sauce then flat ingredients then cheese.

Return to the oven until the toppings are cooked and cheese is melted.

Serve hot and it can be stored in the fridge up to 2 days.
