Phase 2 hCG Recipe | Pear Pesto & Kale Meatza – AP
  • 7oz ground turkey
  • 1/4tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2tsp black pepper
  • 1/4tsp salt
  • 1/2tsp onion powder
  • 1/4cup sliced pear
  • 1/4cup sliced red onion
  • 1/4tsp coconut oil
  • 1 1/2cups chopped kale
  • 3tbsp basil leaves
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1-2tbsp water
  • 1/2cup chopped pear
  • 1/2tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4tsp salt
  1. Place a large skillet on high heat. Once hot, add coconut oil and then the kale. Quickly toss the kale in the hot pan for approximately 1 minute. Remove from heat and add to a food processor or blender.
  2. Add basil leaves, lemon zest, lemon juice, 1 Tbsp water, pear, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper to the food processor or blender. Pulse until combined. If the mixture is too thick, add water 1 tsp at a time until the desired pesto consistency. Set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine ground turkey, 1 tsp coconut oil, black pepper, salt and onion powder. Using your hands, mix together until well combined.
  5. Add the turkey mixture to the baking sheet and flatten into a round, thin circle. Wrap a wooden rolling pin with parchment paper and gently roll out the meat. Try not to tear the meat.
  6. Bake the crust for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove baking sheet from oven. Use a paper towel to soak up the juices before flipping the crust.
  8. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake an additional 10 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven. Top pizza with pesto. Add sliced red onion and pear on top. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

You can also grill the kale if you want extra charred flavor. Grill the leaves whole before chopping them!

For fun, when I made this recipe I divided the ground turkey mixture into 2 crusts instead of 1, and after the initial baking, folded it over to look like a taco and put my toppings on that- purely for a different decorative look. IF you do this, be careful to not overcook crust- it cooks faster divided in two and will get too hard to chew.
