Crunchy Kale Crust Pizza from Sneaky Blends by Missy Chase Lapine

Crunchy Kale Crust Pizza

I’m always on the lookout for a pizza crust that isn’t just a refined carb fest—and this is one of the best I’ve ever had. It’s incredibly good for you in and of itself, not just a delivery system for the sauce and cheese. What’s not to love?

Servings: 4 pieces


  • 1 tbls tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup egg whites (about 3 eggs)
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 cup finely chopped baby kale
  • 1/4 cup White Bean Base Blend Click for Base Blend Recipe
  • 3 tbls grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free flour
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3/4 cup Favorite pizza or pasta sauce*
  • 1 cup grated part-skim mozzarella


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the first 7 ingredients. Add the flour and mix well to combine. Mist an 8-inch skillet with the cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Add 1/4 cup batter and shake the pan to make the crust spread out. Cook for a few minutes, until the bottom is crisp and browned, then flip and cook for another few minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter, re-spraying the pan between batches (the batter makes 4 crusts).
  • Preheat the broiler. Place the crusts on a baking sheet and divide the sauce and mozzarella equally among them. Broil for a few minutes until the cheese is browned and bubbly.

  1. I love this so much, I think that I won’t be able to go back to “regular” pizza dough! I made extra and heated the crust up the next day and it was AMAZING! Have you ever frozen the cooked dough? I am planning on trying that the next time I make it (which will most definitely be SOON). I am thinking that this is such a great base to have on hand. I haven’t tried it yet without the cheese, but I bet using the dough as a wrap for some veggies would be fantastic. 5 stars!
