Sweet Potato Kale Pizza

Don't you love the rainbow of colors?! YUM!

With Cheese or without - You decide!

Inspired by "Skinny B"
2 leeks sliced thinly (white and light green parts only)
1 large sweet onion, diced or sliced (whatever you like)
1 large sweet potato cubed small
2 1/2 C Diced Kale
1/2 tsp cumin seed
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
2 Garlic Cloves, sliced
1/2 tsp Dried Oregano or Italian Seasoning
pinch of red pepper flakes, optional
Goat, feta, or mozzarella cheese

1. Oven to 350. 
2. Add small amount oil or 1/4 C Vegetable Broth in pan. Heat up. Add Onion and Leeks. Cook until soft. Add potato, kale, cumin seed, and salt. Cook until potato's are softened. Add garlic and oregano.
3. Cook pizza crust (recipe below) about 8 minutes (sprinkle pizza pan with cornmeal).
Add toppings and sprinkle with red pepper flakes and cheese if you want. :-)
4. Bake for another 10-12 minutes (until cheese is bubbly)

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough:

1 teaspoon white sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups white whole wheat flour
1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1. In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Sprinkle yeast over the top, and let stand for about 10 minutes, until foamy.
2. Stir the olive oil and salt into the yeast mixture, then mix in the whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup of the all-purpose flour until dough starts to come together. Tip dough out onto a surface floured with the remaining all-purpose flour, and knead until all of the flour has been absorbed, and the ball of dough becomes smooth, about 10 minutes. Place dough in an oiled bowl, and turn to coat the surface. Cover loosely with a towel, and let stand in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
3. When the dough is doubled, tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and divide into 2 pieces for 2 thin crust, or leave whole to make one thick crust. Form into a tight ball. Let rise for about 45 minutes, until doubled.
(to freeze, throw in freezer safe bags after step 2. When you take it out, let it thaw (take it out in the morning) and then roll it out and let it rise.)
