Kale and Beet Pizza (AKA Beetza)

2018年8月8日

Happy Valentine’s Day!  While I don’t have a Valentine this year (stop me if you’ve heard this line before), I’m still celebrating the holiday!

Kale and Beet Pizza (AKA Beetza)

Not only are my valentines in the mail to all my friends and family (sent from Loveland, Colorado) but I’m also making a bright pink festive dinner.

Trader Joe’s released a Beet and Roasted Garlic dip back in December, and I’m on my second container already!  Low in calories and made with fresh simple ingredients, I love this dip for it’s bold beety taste and of course, that beautiful color.  Just about the time I fall in love with a Trader Joe’s item…. they discontinue it.  Let’s hope that this doesn’t happen!!!

Until then, I’ve got this AMAZING recipe for a BEETZA.  Get it?  Beetza!  It pairs the amazingness of the Trader Joe’s Beet dip with hearty kale, and just a drizzle balsamic glaze.  And, of course for the holiday, the heart shape seemed a perfect pairing for the bright pink beet “sauce.”

3.  Move your dough to a lightly floured board.  Using a rolling pin, roll your dough into a pizza shape.  If you’re me, make your pizza into a heart shape during this process.  Place your dough on a baking sheet, sprayed with cooking spray.
