Mini kale, gouda and chilli pizzas

Nutritious kale really packs a punch when fried with chilli and garlic– cover with creamy melted Gouda cheese to create the perfect pizza topping. These mini pizzas provide a fun way to get kids eating vegetables whilst also offering a tasty treat for adults.

  1. Pour the pizza base mixes into a mixing bowl. Add 200ml warm water and a little salt, stirring until it forms a ball of dough. Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 mins, or until smooth.
  2. Wipe the mixing bowl clean and add 1 tbsp oil. Return the dough to the bowl and turn to coat in the oil. Cover and set aside somewhere warm for 30-60 mins, until doubled in size.
  3. Preheat the oven to its highest setting. In a pan, fry the chilli and garlic in the remaining oil for 1 min. Add the blanched kale and mix well.
  4. Divide the dough into 4 pieces and roll out each to a 15cm round on a floured surface. Top with half the cheese and bake for 5 mins. Top with the kale mixture and remaining cheese, then bake until golden.
