I added raw onion rings over the top (in amongst the cheese) and also used Gruyere and Pecorino cheeses along with a little dried hot chillies. It was delicious. I just think eggplant is a bit bland without my extra additions.

OK, the ingredient list is out of whack with different amounts to the recipe so I went with the instructions. I used real mozzarella and dried oregano. Two adults and a toddler happily enjoyed this pizza. I made two pizzas with commercial pizza bases which was enough for all of us with some remaining for snacks later.
