Pizza is one of those treats that I love. A fresh slice with some sweet marinara and melty cheese? Right here! Me! Yes, please!! It’s an easy weeknight meal that everyone gets pumped about. Every week we do a family pizza night and it’s one of my favorite meals.

I’ve played around with different pizza crusts and have shared them on the blog. I’ve made some cauli crusts in my day, some coconut flour flatbread crusts, I even made a beet crust one summer. Hands down, you guys, THIS crust is my fave. My husband came home from work early, ate the whole thing for lunch, and totally raved about it. 

I love that you get an extra serving of greens. I love that you don’t feel guilty about indulging in pizza night. I love that it’s something the whole family can enjoy. 

I used my favorite Taylor Farms power greens for this recipe. I love their fresh organic greens and the mix of the kale and spinach is a perfect blend to get all those awesome vitamins and nutrients. If you want to make the crust from all kale or all spinach, that’ll totally work too!
