It's amazing how just one native food ingredient can embellish the flavour in a dish. The Australian Superfoods Company is keen to share their many ideas on how even the most traditional of recipes and given it's the entertaining season, we thought this recipe most appropriate! 

They write: we all love pizza but often feel guilty indulging in it, that’s why we’ve created this healthy alternative using Kale and Mountain Pepper Leaf as the base. You can replace regular pepper with the Mountain Pepper leaf which provides an exotic taste. And it's all healthy so you can enjoy this pizza..guilt free and everyone goes home a winner!

Kale and Mountain Pepper Leaf Pizza Crust with Tomato, Red Onion and Mushroom

Prep time: 15 mins | Cook time: 25-30 mins | serves 8 slices

Pizza crust

  • 110 g kale, trimmed, washed (3 3/4 cup)
  • 2 eggs, size 6
  • 2/3 cup (55g) Gluten Free Panko Crumbs 
  • 1/2 cup oats (optional)
  • 1 tsp Mountain Pepper Leaf
  • 1 cup grated cheese (140 g)
  • Salt, pepper


  • base sauce of your choice
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 mushrooms
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • Cheese for topping


Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius.

In a food processor with the S blade attachment, add the raw kale, trimmed and washed. Add the eggs, cheese, breadcrumbs, oats, salt and Mountain Pepper Leaf. Process until it forms a sticky pizza dough.

Place the kale pizza dough onto a baking tray covered with baking paper. Using your hand, press the ball to flatten and extend the dough with your finger until it forms a pizza crust of about 0.4 mm thickness, 20 cm diameter. If sticky, slightly oil your hands with olive oil.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until the kale crust is firm and starts to get brown on the sides.

Remove from the oven, add your tomato, red onion and mushrooms or any other pizza toppings you’d like, starting with sauce then flat ingredients then cheese.

Return to the oven until the toppings are cooked and cheese is melted.

Serve hot and it can be stored in the fridge up to 2 days.
