It's been a very long time since I've posted a pizza recipe on this site and I had to remedy that immediately. This pizza has some of my favorite winter ingredients, but used in a fun way instead of another stew or casserole. Since it's chock full of vegetables, you can fool yourself into thinking this is healthy. You'll probably have a lot of kale left over after making this. Make kale chips and try not to devour them all on one sitting. I love the sweet potatoes and onions with the slightly bitter and crispy kale. I added a few red pepper flakes when serving to give it a spicy edge, but a drizzle of balsamic cream would be amazing as well and would tie everything together nicely.

Sweet Potato and Kale Pizza
Makes 2 9-inch pizzas
1 pound curly kale, washed, dried, and torn into pieces
1 small sweet potato, peeled and thinly sliced
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
Cornmeal as needed
1 pound whole wheat pizza dough, at room temperature
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. Spread a thin layer of cornmeal on the foil and set aside.
In a large bowl, drizzle the kale with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to lightly coat all of the kale with oil and seasonings.
Drizzle the sweet potato slices with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to one large circle or two 9-inch circles. Brush any excess flour off the dough.
Brush the dough with a thin layer of olive oil. Top with the mozzarella and then the sweet potato and onion slices.
Bake the pizza for 5 minutes. Take the pizza out of the oven and top with the kale. Bake for an additional five minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbling, the sweet potatoes are cooked through, and the kale is crisp. Serve immediately.
