Very creative creation, basically like a curry on a pizza! Though I would have loved it, I cut back on the spices (and skipped the eggplant) for DH, which made it a winner for him too. I used goat cheese, half the tomatoes/more parsley (fresh/raw at the end), and tortillas for the crust to make it quicker, and baked them at 450 F for 8 minutes. It made 3 tortillas worth (though probably would have been 4 if I hadn't cut back on the topping amounts) and each one was plenty to feed one person. I have a feeling there would be enough filling for at least two 12 inch pizza crusts.
