An insanely simple & tasty eggplant pizza!
A must-try for those who have pledged to eat only herbs and nothing more! It also shows you how to get creative so that you don’t end up wasting food.
We had some Pizza bases that needed attention, before they started to run stale. Since I didn’t want to go out and buy groceries, I decided to try and use whatever we had in the kitchen – eggplants!
Eggplants are a popular veggie in Indian cuisine and used in various forms in dishes. It’s also relatively cheap and being a household favourite, we always had enough in the kitchen. Grilled eggplants taste great and so I thought of using them to make this pizza.
So here’s what’ll you’ll be doing to make one of the best veggie pizzas 😉
Cut the eggplants into thin circles and brush them with a little oil and grill them for few mins until lightly crisp.
Now as you would make any pizza, spread out your favourite pizza sauce on the pizza base (red base preferred). Arrange the crispy grilled eggplants, along with onions (cut into rings) neatly on the base. To add to the pleasure of making it more tasty, and healthy, use some rucola leaves (spinach or any other herb of your choice works well too). Spread some ricotta cheese over this and grill away for about 3 mins (& no more!)
