Low carb dieters often miss the taste of pizza. This eggplant version is sauceless, but is completely delicious! You can always add sauce or a tomato slice if you'd like!
1 medium sized eggplant
6-8 slices cheese with pepperoni
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
Slice large circles across the middle of the eggplant, 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.
Servings: 3-4 (depending on the size of your eggplant)
Slices per serving: 2
Carb count per 2 slices: 2.3g
Eggplant Slices Pizza Recipe - for a more Eggplanty flavor
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 :)
