This dish is easy to put together since it uses mainly store-bought ingredients. Frozen pizza dough is grilled than topped with eggplant, caponata, and cheese. From "Everyday with Rachael Ray" magazine. If, you don't have caponata you can make your own, or just add roasted red peppers, onions, and olives as topping.
