Eggplant Pizza Recipe

12:27 PM

This is such a SIMPLE and easy recipe. I am all about easy and simple. I will be honest, I am the worst at measuring or making recipes exact so this recipe really doesn't have much measurements but hey even better, right??

Next time I make this, I will take step by step pictures for you but for now this is all I got for you.

1. Eggplant: about 9 inches long or so
2. Fresh or dried herbs
3. Olive oil
4. Jar of marinara sauce (or whatever kind of pasta sauce you have in your pantry right now)
5. Shredded mozzarella
6. OVEN->okay duh.

1. Start by cutting the top and bottom of your eggplant off. Then cut the eggplant into about 3/4 inch slices.
2. Place on baking sheet and brush tops of eggplant with olive oil.
3. Shake some dried basil (or fresh or Italian spice or whatever you like) on top of each eggplant slice.
4. Bake at 375 for no more than 25 minutes. Too long and they get mushy!
5. Pull out of the oven and top with a light layer of sauce. I literally pulled out a random jar of pasta sauce out of our pantry. We keep it simple around here!
6. After a thin layer of sauce is applied, top with a generous amount of mozzarella cheese and additional dried herbs. It would be really great with fresh herbs, prosciutto and cherry tomatoes! But again simple here haha.
7. Place back in oven and broil till cheesy is lightly browned and bubbly. Not very long maybe 5 minutes tops.

Confession...this the first time I have ever used the broil feature on my oven. Seriously??? It is awesome! There is way more fancy ways you can make these little guys but I worked with what I had on hand. They were delicious and I wasn't even jealous of my hubby eating baked ziti across from me.
