Whether you are operating a café, restaurant, or some sort of other professional kitchens, a high-speed restaurant oven is an essential type of commercial restaurant equipment for cooking food quickly. One of the most popular dishes to make in a high-speed restaurant oven that your guests will love is pizza.

Pizza can be made in a variety of ways and veggie pizzas have become especially popular, thanks to the rise in vegetarian and vegan customers looking for restaurants that cater to their needs. Make sure you include all your guests’ needs on your menu by exploring this new recipe: Kale Pesto Pizza.

This Kale Pesto Pizza offers double the kale with a garlicky kale-pecan pesto and crispy kale chips on top of this addictive veggie pizza! Here is how you can make this recipe using your commercial restaurant equipment:

Ingredients You Will Need

To create this dish quickly, you will first need to gather all the ingredients:

Kale Pesto Sauce

  • 2 cups of kale, washed and de-stemmed
  • 1/2 cup of pecans or de-skinned pistachios
  • 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon of fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper

Kale Pizza

  • 1 whole wheat pizza dough
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1 large sliced tomato
  • 1 cup of roughly chopped kale, washed and de-stemmed
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil

Creating The Kale Pesto Sauce

To create the kale pesto sauce, you want to first start off with adding kale and nuts to a food processor and pulsing for about 2 minutes. Next, add the olive oil, roasted garlic, salt, and pepper, while continuing to pulse for about 2-3 more minutes. Feel free to add more olive oil if you want a more runny consistency, or more nuts if you want a thicker pesto.

Creating The Kale Pizza

To create the kale pizza, you want to first start off with preheating your high-speed restaurant oven or specialty pizza oven to 500 F degrees. Spread the kale pesto sauce over the pizza and top with mozzarella cheese, tomato slices, and then chopped kale. Next, drizzle olive oil over the top of the pizza and place it in your oven to bake for 8-10 minutes. When ready, remove the pizza from your oven, let it cool slightly, and serve to your guests.
