eggplant pizza

I'm starting to see a pattern in the types of recipes I like to make.  Have you guessed it yet?

It's vegetables!

I absolutely love vegetables.  Even when I go out for lunch or dinner, I always try to eat vegetables.  I've got my favourites, eggplant, zucchini, asparagus, cabbage, lettuce, cucumber, just to name a few.  There aren't many veggies that don't make the list.  I'm not the biggest fan of raw broccoli, for example.

As for today's recipe, it features eggplant.  It's super tasty.



Here's the recipe!

Eggplant Pizza

Ingredients
4 Chinese eggplants, sliced lengthwise 1/4"
2 tbsp pine nuts, toasted
1 cup of goat cheese
red chilli flakes
olive oil
salt & pepper
pizza dough for crust

Directions

1. Preheat over to 350F.  Place eggplant on sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper.  Coat both sides.   Roast eggplant in the over for 40mins, turning them over half way through, until they fully roasted on both sides.

2.  Roll out pizza dough and place on a baking stone in the over for 5mins, to partially cook.  Remove from the oven and set it aside.

3.  Spread goat cheese evenly on the pizza crust.  Next, place the eggplant on top, spreading the pieces evenly.  Sprinkle with the toasted pine nuts and chilli flakes to taste, and drizzle with olive oil.

4.  Place pizza in the oven for another 10 mins until the crust is fully baked.

Enjoy!
