1 batch whole wheat pizza dough (homemade or store-bought)
2 cups torn kale leaves
1 cup Cheesy Walnut Beet Sauce (recipe below)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup baked (or grilled) chicken, diced
For the Cheesy Walnut Beet Sauce
1 cup cooked beets, chopped
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
½ cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
½ cup walnuts, roasted & unsalted
1 Tbsp. Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce
Preheat oven to 400F.
For the beet sauce: Place all ingredients in food processor and pulse until it forms a pesto-like consistency (mostly smooth, but with a few lumps). Save 1 cup for the pizza and store the remaining sauce in the fridge for up to 7 days.
Roll out pizza dough on a floured surface.
Spread beet sauce evenly over dough, followed by mozzarella cheese, chicken and kale. Note, if you like your crust extra crispy, don’t put the kale on right away.
Place pizza in oven and bake 20 minutes. For crispier crust, after 20 minutes add kale to pizza then continue to bake another 5-10 minutes.
