Mini Eggplant Pizzas

Mini Eggplant Pizzas


Get more veggies and reduce carbs with this simple "pizza" recipe! 


Eggplant is highly nutritious but is often left off the grocery list. Eggplant is a great source of vitamins B-6 and C, iron and magnesium. Half of an eggplant's carbohydrates are dietary fiber, and it is also packed with potassium. Pick some up and try eating them like this! 

Enjoy the flavors of pizza with fewer carbohydrates and more nutrients.

Ingredients

  • 1 large eggplant
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pizza sauce

Optional: Add any toppings you like! Here are some ideas.

  • Olives
  • Pepperoni slices
  • Chives
  • Mushrooms
  • Tomatoes
  • Cooked bacon
  • Sausage

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. 
  2. Cut the eggplant into 1/4 inch thick slices and place the slices on a baking sheet. Brush with a thin layer of olive oil and lightly salt them (leave the salt off if you're concerned about extra sodium, but the added salt makes the eggplant better), and bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the baked eggplant from the oven and top with pizza sauce, cheese, and any topping you want to add.
  4. Return to the oven and bake an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and toppings look properly cooked.
