Eggplant pizza to warm the soul

Happy Friday friends!  I am crawling out from under the ice that took Houston down this week! I literally have not felt this cold since I moved away from Chicago 10 years ago!

With the ice covering everything, I got to work in my kitchen to make some yummy food to keep us warmed up!  I did manage to get a lot done in the 1.5 days where I did not leave my house! I am SO thankful that even though it was cold and nasty out, it will be back to normal temps this weekend!

Today I am linking up today for Foodie Friday with Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama and Farrah from Fairyburger for our pinterest interest themed week!

I have seen a few eggplant recipes bouncing around pinterest, but when I saw a few for a healthier version of pizza, I knew I had to try it out.

Ingredients

  • 1 Medium eggplant sliced into approx 1/4 in slices
  • Pink salt
  • 1ish cups tomato sauce
  • Choice of toppings (I did sauteed red pepper & spinach)
  • Choice of cheese (I used almond cheese)

Direcions

  1. Preheat oven to 375*F
  2. Place eggplant slices on a lined baking sheet
  3. Sprinkle a dab of salt on each slice (this helps reduce the moisture in the eggplant)
  4. Pre-bake the eggplant about 15 min, flipping halfway through
  5. Remove pan from oven and add about 1 Tbs tomato sauce on top of each slice
  6. Add on toppings of choice and then sprinkle on the cheese
  7. Bake for 10-15 min or until cheese is golden brown
  8. Enjoy 🙂

    Does the eggplant crisp up, or is it a little soft and mushy after baking? I’ve never had great success with an eggplant base/crust. That said, these do look tasty, but my husband would likely turn his nose up. LOL

    Hope you’re staying warm this weekend!

    Yay for pizzaaaaa! I haven’t made pizza in the longest time but I’ve kinda randomly been craving it lately–I need to try this! Way less complicated than making the crust! 😛

    That does look quite healthy with the sub of eggplant for the pizza crust. I haven’t seen almond cheese but I will keep an eye out for it, it sounds like something I might like to try.
