Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook kale and garlic in the boiling water until kale is softened, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse kale and garlic under cold water, reserving the boiling water.
  3. Blend kale, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and about 1 tablespoon of the boiling water in a blender until smooth; add more water as needed to thin the pesto.
  4. Spoon about 1 tablespoon pesto onto each English muffin half; sprinkle with chicken and top with mozzarella cheese. Arrange pizzas on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until mozzarella cheese is melted and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

Kale Pesto Pizza Muffin Haiku: "Made one for light lunch. (Saved extra 'pesto' for eggs.) Pizza not too bad!" I love kale in all its forms, and this was a new way to enjoy it, but I think it could've benefited from a little s&p or sprinkle of Italian seasoning. I was faithful to the recipe (reducing it to 2 english muffin halves just for my own lunch) and it was delicious and filling. The pesto that I had leftover I used in a mushroom/parm/tomato omelet the next day, and THAT was really good.
