READY IN: 2hrs 10mins




  • Garlic Pizza Sauce:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Peel the outer skin from the garlic head to expose the individuals cloves.
  • Cut the top off all the cloves - the root of the garlic holds it all together.
  • Place the garlic top up in an oven proof bowl preferably deeper than the height of the garlic - I used a french onion soup bowl.
  • Pepper the top of the garlic - I use lots of pepper.
  • Drizzle some of the olive oil over the garlic and save the rest for later.
  • Cover the dish with aluminum foil sealing it by crimping over the edge.
  • Roast in the oven for 1 hour.
  • Uncover and let the garlic cool.
  • Squeeze the garlic cloves out of their skins into a small bowl.
  • Pour the olive oil from the baking bowl in with the cloves.
  • Add more freshly ground pepper if desired.
  • Mash with a form until smooth - using more olive oil as needed to get a smooth sauce.
  • Whole Wheat Pizza Crust:
  • Mix water, honey and yeast.
  • Let yeast “start” for about 5 minutes.
  • Add 1 cup of the flour
  • Add wheat gluten, olive oil, spices (optional)
  • Knead about 7 minutes - adding additional flour until you get the right consistency
  • Knead until smooth and elastic.
  • Keep the remaining flour for when you roll the dough.
  • Put a damp towel over the bowl and let rise for 20 minutes.
  • Roll the dough to about 13" rolling the edges thinner than the centre.
  • Twist up the edges into a pizza crust shape.
  • Pierce the base of the pizza dough with a fork.
  • Let the crust rest in a warm place for a few minutes.
  • Bake the crust at 450 degrees on a pizza stone for about 5 minutes before putting on your toppings.
  • Portobello & Kale Topping.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat.
  • Add the portobello mushroom slices.
  • Add freshly ground pepper and if desired, salt.
  • Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until mushrooms are softened
  • Add kale and cook for about 3 minutes, until it is wilted
  • Remove from heat and set aside until the dough is ready.
  • Final Assembly & Baking:
  • Spread the garlic sauce on the pre-baked crust.
  • Put the soft cheese slices on next (mozzarina or similar).
  • Spread the portobello and kale mixture
  • Top with the shredded mozzarella
  • Put the assembled pizza into the oven at 450 for about 10 minutes.
