Garlic Mushroom and Crispy Kale

Pre-heat your oven to its hottest setting, and lightly flour your worksurface, rolling pin (if using) and baking tray. Heat a frying pan and add the oil and lazy garlic, then add the mushrooms, leaving them still for several minutes so they pick up lots of colour rather than moving them around in the pan.

When they have browned all over and absorbed all of the garlic and oil, turn off the heat. Roll or stretch your dough to approx. 10-12 inches in diameter (this will give you a classic Neapolitan style thin and crispy pizza). 

Move your pizza base to the lightly floured baking tray (use semolina flour if you have it, for added crunch, or just plain flour if not). Spread the passata across the surface, then add the mushrooms, and cheese, before sprinkling the bacon and kale over the top (which will go deliciously crisp in the oven).

Move to the hot oven for 8-10 mins until and the crust has turned golden brown and the toppings are bubbling. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 3-5 mins. As well as preventing burnt mouths, this also helps the pizza topping to ‘set’ and means your toppings won’t slide when you slice into it! Slice, share and enjoy!
