Pizza is one of the greatest inventions of all time. It's more than a dish, it is a tradition that involves different social situations. Pizza means friends and beers, after-game celebrations, Netflix and chill nights and 12-year-olds' birthday parties. It's usually delicious and even by mentioning it you can get smiles all over the place. But as with all good things, one must pay a price. It is easy, it can be very tasteful, but classic pizza is not the healthiest option in the menu.
So, who said food we associate with being unhealthy can't have a fresh change of face? This eggplant pizza will never substitute the crunchy crust, but it won't leave you regretting the unnecessary excessive ingest of refined carbohydrates and trust me, it also tastes incredible. I'm not suggesting you stop eating pizza, 'm just giving you another appetizing option out here.
- Prep Time:7 mins
- Cook Time:10 mins
- Total Time:17 mins
- 2 eggplants
- 1 200ml jar tomato sauce
- 1 110 g bag grated cheese
- 1 cup olives
- 5-6 mushrooms
- Olive oil
Cut the eggplant into 1/2 inch pieces, you can do it in long pieces or smaller circles. This way looked more like pizza.
Salt the slices, wait 5-7 minutes and dry them with a napkin like this:
Add tomato sauce and bake in the oven for 4 minutes.
Take them out of the oven and add the other ingredients. First cheese, then anything you like.
Bake for more or less 5 minutes. Eggplant is tricky so you should check how it goes and take them out when the cheese is melted enough...Like this. Y-u-m-m-y.
I prepared mine with what I had, but you can put whatever topping you like on yours. That is the beauty of this pizza, it is faster to make than any other, and depending what you put on it it can be heavenly delicious. My personal advise: the olives one tastes u n b e l i e v a b le. I'm thinking pineapple for my next one...what will be yours?
