  • 1 tsp Cane Sugar, Organic
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt, Coarse, Mediterranean
  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 5 cups Organic Green Kale
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large Yellow Onion
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 150 g Mozzarella


2 Warm the water. In a large bowl dissolve the sugar in warm water. Add the yeast and let sit for about 10 minutes or until foamy.
3 Add the salt and the olive oil to the yeast mixture and stir. Add 1 cup of whole wheat flour, stir to combine with a fork. Add the second cut of whole wheat flour and continue stirring. Now add 1 cup of all-purpose flour slowly – you may not need all of it. Once the dough all comes together tip the dough onto a floured work surface.
4 Only use the last 1/2 cup of flour if needed. The dough should be slightly sticky but at the same time still easily comes away from your hands. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes. It should be nice and smooth when you are finished.
5 Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Let sit for about an hour with a slightly damp cloth covering the bowl. Try and find a nice cozy place in your house for the dough to grow, somewhere with no draft.
6 Prepare your toppings (see below). Once an hour has passed, or the dough has doubled in size (whichever is first) remove the dough from the bowl and separate into 3 even balls. Form nice tight balls of dough and let sit for another 45 minutes.
7 Roll the balls of dough out on a lightly floured surface into 3 12″ circles. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C) while you make the toppings.
9 Wash kale, remove stems and roughly chop. Cut mozzarella cheese into 1/4 inch slices.
10 Place a frying pan on medium heat. Add olive oil and fry onions for about 7-10 minutes or until nice and tender. Add kale, salt and pepper and fry for about 1-3 minutes or until kale is wilted. Remove from heat.
11 Spread mixture onto 2 rolled out 12″ pizza dough rounds. Add slices of mozzarella cheese. Place on parchment paper or pizza stone and bake in preheated oven for about 5-7 minutes or until crust is golden.
