I have to admit, I have been CRAVING pizza a lot lately so when I was sent back to Michigan after visiting my parents with a couple of eggplants, I knew exactly what I would be making: pizza.

This was my first time making eggplant pizza and I was definitely not disappointed. It came together so easily and man, was it delicious! When it comes to eating within my food restrictions, sometimes I miss the β€œregular” versions of things, but that was definitely not the case with these pizzas.

  • Eggplant
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Whatever toppings you want πŸ˜‰


  • Preheat oven to 375*.
  • Slice eggplant into Β½ inch slices, sprinkle with salt and set on paper towel for 20-30 minutes.
  • After sitting, wipe off salt and place eggplant on parchment paper lined cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and paper. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and top with whatever toppings you’d like. (I used sautΓ©ed onions and peppers, red sauce, nutritional yeast and hemp hearts).
  • Return to oven for another 5-10 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

Note: When my pizzas came out of the oven, I topped with some fresh arugula and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. Delicious!

      yep, it helps to draw out the water a bit so they cook and firm up better, and usually makes them less bitter.
      i actually LOVE eggplant, and almost never go through that step, unless i really need to remove the water from it.
