Prepping Nettles for Pizza?

I've been seeing lots of nettles are our local farmers' market and would like to make a pizza utilizing them this weekend. I haven't worked with them before, but it sounds like getting rid of the stinging element is as simple as a blanch for ~1 minute in boiling water? After that I was planning to saute them in duck fat with garlic and hot chilis before topping the pie.

Any advice for prepping or recommendations for nettle pies?
