Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large skillet, cook the kale in hot oil for 1 minute. Add 3 Tbsp. water. Cover and steam for 4 minutes. Let cool.

In a medium bowl, combine the kale, ricotta cheese, and shredded cheese.

Roll the pizza dough out on a lightly floured surface. Using a bowl or plate, cut four 5.5 inch circles. Divide the filling over half of each circle, leaving a small border. Fold the unfilled half over the filled half; seal the edges. Place on the baking sheet. Prick tops with a fork. Bake until golden, 16-18 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce.
