Kale, Heirloom Tomato Pesto-Sauce Pizza 羽衣甘蓝蕃茄青酱比萨饼

Now I can have this pizza every time when heirloom tomatoes are in summer peak, also assuming there is fresh basil in the garden every summer to make pesto.

There seems quite some conditions to satisfy so until then, why not enjoy the moment right here, right now?

Trader Joes Pita Bread (also used in these Pesto Pita Bites) is perfect for this pizza. This pita bread is thin yet not as thin as lavash bread that typically turn out too crispy and not able to hold too many pizza toppings.

The same pita bread is thick yet not as thick as a deep-dish pizza crust that to me, often has too much crust to toppings ratio.

Kale and Heirloom Tomato Pesto-Sauce Pizza
Spread about 1-2 tsp of homemade pesto around the pita bread. Layer the sliced heirloom tomatoes, top with thinly sliced blanched kale (making sure excess moisture from blanched kale is removed by squeezing the kale dry), shaved cheese, and basil ribbons atop the tomatoes across the pita bread.

Preheat oven 400. Bake about 10-12minutes till cheese melts (for softer crust) or about 15 minutes for crispy crust.
