I agree that 425 was a little high for that length of time.
I'm so impressed, Chef Sunshine, that you created this recipe on your own while never having eaten the main ingredient. This is delicious. Dh gobbled it up. It reminded me a bit of sauced pizza crust. Next time I'll decrease the oven temp to 400° and bake for only 20 minutes as some of my eggplant got a little crispy at 425° for 25 minutes.
