    Chef kittiekitsch's Note:

    This Pizza recipe came from Yahoo! Food with some alterations by me. I used a Premade Boboli-style Pizza Crust instead. I also think the pesto would be better spead under the eggplant or maybe even without it at all. I loved the eggplant so much I thought the pesto and cheese overpowered it. See what you think? On the matter of pizza dough and pesto it recommennded store-bought or homemade again - your preference.

      DH made this as a grilled pizza for me. We used homemade pizza dough, The Art of Making the Perfect Pizza Dough, 236785, which was really good. DH grilled the eggplant, which was fantastic--my favorite part of the pizza. I thought the eggplant went well with the goat cheese and parm. I had the same reaction as you did to the pesto. I tried spreading it under the eggplant, but it was still overpowering and detracted from the taste. I would omit it next time. The grilled eggplant was fantastic, though, so the recipe just needs some tweaking. Perhaps you should re-post it as Eggplant and Goat Cheese Pizza?
