2. Bring 2 qts. very hot water to a boil in a covered pot. Add kale; cook until tender to the bite, about 3 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water, and squeeze out excess water.
3. Meanwhile, roll dough on a floured work surface into a 14-in. circle, letting it rest a few seconds between passes of the rolling pin so it will stretch. Lay dough on a floured baking sheet.
