eggplant pizzas

Recipe from Cherry Blossom Kitchen.


  • 1 eggplant, 16 ounces
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 10 large basil leaves, cut into chiffonade strips (optional)
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan, freshly grated
  • 1/2 cup low-fat mozzarella, grated
  • crushed red pepper flakes for sprinkling over finished pizza (optional)
  • 1 cup tomato sauce


  1. Cut off both ends or the eggplant, then slice into ½ inch thick slices. Place slices on a double layer of paper towels, sprinkle both sides with salt and let sit for about 30 minutes to draw out liquid.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F while eggplant slices sit.
  3. Wipe the eggplant dry with paper towels to remove the salt and moisture.
  4. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil. Add eggplant slices to pan and brush the tops with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning.
  5. Roast the eggplant about 25 minutes or until softened but not mushy.
  6. Remove eggplant from oven when done and adjust the oven to broil. Spread a couple of tablespoons of sauce on top of each slice. Top with cheese. Broil until the cheese melts and is slightly browned. Watch carefully.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy!
