Sweet Potato Kale & Goat Cheese Pizza {Recipe}

I love our Friday night family tradition, we make (or order) our own personal pizzas. This past weekend I was feeling a little more creative (I miss those days)  and decided to re-create one of the yummy pizza’s we had while we were in Maine last Spring at the Flat Bread Company. I will never forget how delicious it was and I still want to to try and re-create the honey balsamic vinegar reduction that was on it. I improvised with BBQ sauce and it was still rather delish! Oh and if you have portabella mushrooms on hand, throw some of those on there too! sweetpotatokalepizza

Sweet Potato Kale and Goat Cheese Pizza


Your favorite whole wheat pizza (we used Trader Joe’s) 
1 large sweet potato baked and mashed 
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, divided
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups goat cheese 
1 1/2 cups chopped kale
1/4 cup (ish) BBQ Sauce 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar 


1. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough, using a rolling pin or your hands.  Roll it out to about 3/8 of an inch. Place the pizza dough on a pizza pan that has been generously coated with olive oil. Lightly brush the dough with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. In a small bowl, toss the kale with balsamic vinegar. Spread the bbq sauce on the pizza like you would with pizza sauce, then top with mashed sweet potato , kale, red onion slices (I like to caramelize these first but you don’t have to) , and then the goat cheese.
2. Place the pizza in the oven on the oven rack. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until pizza crust is golden and cheese is melted. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes before slicing. Slice and serve warm.   WARNING YOU WILL WANT TO EAT THE WHOLE PIZZA! I couldn’t help it!
