  • Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Toss kale in a medium bowl with 1 teaspoon oil. Stretch dough into a 12-inch circle.

  • Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle cornmeal into it. Carefully place the dough in the pan. Spread tomatoes over the dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with half the cheese, half the sausage and half the kale. Repeat with the remaining cheese, sausage and kale. Brush the edge of the dough with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil.

  • Bake until the bottom of the pizza is crisp and the cheese is starting to brown, about 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
