Make

  1. Preheat oven to 375F (191C) degrees
  2. Place flatbread onto sheet pan sprayed with cooking oil. Top with sauce, red pepper flakes, mozzarella, and artichokes and olives (Let the kids help with this!). Bake in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until cheese is bubbly
  3. Place pine nuts on a sheet pan and toast in the oven for the last 3 to 5 minutes

We actually used a pizza dough since I had one in the fridge and we added jalapeño slices, mushrooms and used sliced green olives. Yum! Also did a green side salad. I'll have to focus more on the kale salad next time.

This rating is for the Kale Salad only. I was shocked by how much we enjoyed this side dish. I checked the recipe 5 or 6 times to make sure that I wasn't supposed to cook the kale, but you don't, and it was fine. I wasn't even able to get dino or lacinato as suggested, but ordinary kale worked fine. I didn't have any yogurt so I substituted sour cream. I did use a dash of tobasco. I was surprised and delighted with this little salad.

The pizza definitely lived up to its purpose, Stupidly easy, and I can see how kids would be so pleased with themselves making it, perhaps not enjoying olives and artichoke hearts so much. But otherwise I think my husband makes much better pizza. The dressing and kale salad I'm very glad to know, as I don't think I would have stumbled upon that on my own.
