Kale Pizza - Naan Pizza with Kale and Queso Blanco Cheese

I am not sure what is with pizza but the kids love it and slowly but reluctantly I have come around to liking it. Not really, I just don't like greasy pizza. That's all. Anyway I use the kids as excuse but I like these easy to make but tasty pizzas.

Whenever you get some good quality kale, chard or collard you should save the excess. Wash, cut, remove the excess moisture and freeze them for later use. Having frozen ready to use greens makes dinner or lunch that much easier. This recipe came about with just such an arrangement. I had some frozen kale and a pack of store bought naan ready to be used. I also had a pack of Queso Blanco cheese which I wanted to use and in hindsight this was a great cheese to use on a pizza. It is non aged cheese just like paneer and is very mild and creamy.
