Beet, Feta & Kale Pizza

Do pickled beets, feta cheese and kale sound like a strange combination for pizza toppings?  I promise, they are delicious together!  This is a recipe from The Scrumptious Pantry and was demonstrated in the cooking class I attended last weekend.

My dad is visiting this week and he and I quickly devoured this pizza for dinner last night, then decided we definitely need to make it again before he leaves, that's how much we both liked it.  Chris doesn't care for beets, so you can guess what his opinion was on this pizza.

  1. I love topping my pizzas with crazy non-traditional ingredients...and this sounds awesome! I would never have thought to use pickled beets but what a great idea!

  2. I've newly discovered beets are one of my favorite toppings, so this looks amazing!
