As most people along the east coast settled in for a snow day I decided to try a new recipe. Looking through my refrigerator I grabbed random ingredients, eggplant, diced tomatoes, and cheese. While searching Pinterest for inspiration I found an eggplant pizza recipe and decided I would make my own.
Globe eggplant (purple in color and round in shape)
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 small clove of garlic
Minced onion seasoning
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Starting with the Eggplant cut it into several thick slices, the thickness varies on how you want your crust of your pizza to be. On a baking sheet sprayed with Pam place your slices of eggplant then drizzle olive oil over each piece. I then used the Italian seasoning and put a generous amount on each piece of eggplant. This recipe isn’t about exact measurements it is about how much flavor you prefer.
Place the eggplant in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. In a sauce pan combine diced tomatoes, sliced garlic clove, and 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pan adding a dash of minced onion, basil, and oregano as well. Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes. Once everything is finished cooking place the eggplant on the plate add the tomato mixture on top and finish it with any type of cheese you like. Now it’s time to enjoy! This recipe was so yummy and also a healthy alternative to actual pizza. What are some of your favorite healthy recipes?
