Dave's new favourite pizza is a healthier version of regular pizza with an eggplant crust. From there you can add whatever toppings you like. This pizza we chose a few different toppings: mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, kale, mushrooms and ham. The first time we made the pizza it didn't work quite how we wanted to, however, we keep trying and even though the pieces don't come out like perfect pizza slices every time they still taste delicious!
- 1 eggplant
- 1/2 cup of parmesan, grated (add more if you need)
- handful of cherry tomatoes, chopped
- 1 clove of garlic
- dried oregano, or any Italian spices/herbs you want
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 6 slices of mozzarella
- your choice of toppings: 1 mushroom, 2 slices of ham, handful of chopped kale
Slice eggplant in 1/4" rounds, salt and let stand for 10 minutes. Arrange on parchment lined baking tray and sprinkle with parmesan. Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Remove from oven and carefully flip off of parchment onto pizza oven tray (or baking sheet). Put back into oven for 10 minutes to crisp up parmesan base. Remove from oven again and top with desired toppings. For our homemade cherry tomato 'sauce,' chop up cherry tomatoes and finely chopped garlic and place in bowl with olive oil, spices and herbs of choice. After adding the toppings, put back in oven and bake for 10-15 more minutes. Carefully slice into pieces and enjoy!
