Directions

1
PIZZA DOUGH: Line a 12-13 inch rimmed pizza pan with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
2
Combine flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor; pulse to mix well.
3
Combine water and oil in a measuring cup. Add liquids to the flour mixture and pulse until a soft ball of dough forms. If the dough is too stiff (a hard-clay texture), add a tablespoon of warm water; pulse or process for about 15 seconds, until the dough is well kneaded.
4
With floured hands, transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Roll out dough to fit the pizza pan, dusting work surface with flour as needed to keep dough from sticking. Place dough the prepared pizza pan.
5
SAUSAGE TOPPING: Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
6
Heat 1-1/2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until oil is almost smoking. Add sliced onions and cook 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally as they begin to brown.
7
ASSEMBLY: Meanwhile, spread the pizza dough evenly with apple butter.
8
Toss kale with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil and season lightly with salt and pepper.
9
Top flatbread dough with caramelized onions, spreading evenly. Finally, layer with kale and turkey sausage slices.
10
Bake 10-12 minutes, until the pizza is brown in spots. Remove from oven and scatter cheese over the top. Serve hot.
