Eggplant Cheese Pizza Recipe

This version of the Eggplant Pizza uses long slices of eggplant instead of smaller circles. This gives the pizza more of an eggplanty flavor, for those who love the vegetable!

Eggplant Pizza

1 medium sized eggplant
6-8 slices cheese with pepperoni
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano

Slice the eggplant lengthwise, about 1/2" thick. Use the rest of the eggplant for Ratatouille or something else. Grill for 4-5 minutes until eggplant slices become crispy. Put a sheet of cheese on each. When melted, sprinkle on basil and oregano. Serve warm.

Note that I love the cheese that comes with pepperoni in it (tiny bits) but you can of course use the pizza cheese blends, mozzarella or whatever other cheese you enjoy. Just watch the carb counts per slice. You can also spoon on a small amount of sauce or put a tomato slice on top.

Some people have asked where we found our cheese with pepperoni. We got it at BJs but I imagine you can get it at many delis.

Servings: 3-4 (depending on the size of your eggplant)
Slices per serving: 2
Carb count per 2 slices: 2.3g

Eggplant Circles Pizza Recipe

Note: Eggplant skins are definitely edible, just a little tough. So you can eat them if you want! Really old eggplants can get a sort of bitter tasting skin - but the skin has important nutrients in it. So your choices are to get younger eggplants, or get used to the bitterness :)
