Baby Kale Pesto Pizza

Baby Kale Pesto Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 Cappello’s grain-free cheese pizza frozen
  • 1 batch baby kale pesto, recipe below
  • 6-7 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • Baby Kale Pesto Ingredients:
  • 3 cups packed baby kale
  • ½ cup raw walnuts
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder

Instructions

  • Position an oven rack and baking sheet to the lowest level, and preheat to 450F.
  • Add all pesto ingredients to a high-speed blender. Blend on medium-low power until the pesto reaches your desired consistency. Stop to scrape down the sides as needed, and test for S&P. If you like a thinner, more drizzle-worthy pesto, continue to add lemon juice and olive oil. If you prefer a dollop-style pesto, use the provided ratios and adjust spices and walnuts as needed.
  • Remove the pizza from the freezer and packaging, and decorate with spoonfuls of pesto until desired amount is reached (about ½-¾ of the pesto).
  • Carefully place pizza on the baking sheet, and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until crisp and lightly browned.
  • Remove pizza from oven, and garnish with fresh basil and lemon zest. Enjoy immediately!
