Garlic, Sausage, and Kale Naan Pizza

Easy, quick, and healthy weekday dinner


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste
  • 12 ounces 93%-lean ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 8 cups lightly packed prechopped kale or baby kale
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • Champagne Vinegar 6.8 Fl Oz
  • 2 8-inch whole-grain naan breads (see Tips) or whole-wheat pitas
  • ¾ cup mini mozzarella balls, such as mozzarella “pearls” (see Tips)


  • Active 20 m

  • Ready In 20 m
  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler to high.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil, garlic and crushed red pepper in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. As soon as the garlic starts to sizzle, add turkey, fennel seeds, paprika and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Cook, breaking up the turkey with a wooden spoon, until it is almost cooked, 2 to 3 minutes. Add kale, vinegar and the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt; cook, stirring, until the kale is wilted and the turkey is no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove from heat.
  3. Place naan (or pitas) on a large baking sheet and brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Top with equal portions of the turkey mixture and mozzarella.
  4. Broil until the cheese is melted and the edges are starting to brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Cut in half.
  • Naan—Indian flatbread—makes a nice pizza crust when you’re in a hurry. It’s lower in sodium than our other favorite pizza-dough substitute, whole-wheat pita. Look for it in your supermarket bakery or deli.
  • Sometimes labeled “pearls” or bocconcini, mini fresh mozzarella balls are perfect for plopping on a pizza whole. If you can’t find them, thinly slice regular fresh mozzarella.
  • Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
