Let's talk about a favorite food today! I love pizza, and it's always better when it's made at home. Ok…the dough isn't homemade for us. We're lucky to have a good pre-made dough available at the grocery store for a great price. It's so easy to pick up a ball of dough on the way home for a fast, great homemade meal.
For this pizza, I bake kale chips and cook some bacon to make something oddly delicious. I start by tossing torn kale with olive oil and garlic salt. Spread the kale on a cookie sheet in a single layer at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes. The kale shouldn't be crispy yet, but close to that. While the kale bakes, render the fat from 2-3 slices of bacon. Drain the bacon and assemble the pizza with your cheese of choice. Feta makes an awesome addition to classic mozzarella.
I bake my pizza at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, depending on how thin I roll my crust that day. I don't use a pizza peel or stone, but if you do follow the directions for your set-up.
