In a quest to be healthy but still fulfill our everlasting love for pizza, Carl and I experimented with a recent recipe we found on Pinterest (of course): Eggplant Pizza. I can't get over how good it was!
(adapted from this recipe)
2 medium to large sized eggplants
1 jar tomato sauce (whichever flavor you love best)
1 bag Italian blend shredded cheese
1 package fresh mushrooms
Basil leaves (chopped)
Sea salt, pepper, & grated Parmesan cheese to taste
Slice the eggplants into 2cm thick slices. Brush each side with olive oil and place on grill. Grill over a medium heat until the eggplant slightly begins to char, but is still firm. Be careful not to overcook.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place grilled slices onto a baking sheet. Spread the sauce onto the eggplants and layer toppings as you please. My personal favorite was sauce, prosciutto, mushrooms, freshly chopped basil, cheese, and a few tomato toppers. Bake for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and begins to bubble. Top with sea salt and pepper. Ta-da, satisfy your pizza craving!!
