DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • In a large nonstick frying pan, heat 2 1/2 tablespoons of the oil over moderately high heat.
  • Season the eggplant with the salt.
  • Fry one-third of the eggplant, turning, until golden, about 10 minutes. Remove.
  • Repeat in two more batches with the remaining oil, using more if needed, and the eggplant.
  • Meanwhile, oil a 14-inch pizza pan or large baking sheet.
  • Press the pizza dough onto the pan in an approximately 14-inch round or 9-by-13-inch rectangle.
  • Arrange the eggplant slices on the pizza crust.
  • Sprinkle the garlic and pepper over the top.
  • Bake for 12 minutes.
  • Put the slices of goat cheese on the pizza.
  • Sprinkle with the Parmesan, and then dot with the pesto.
  • Bake until the cheese begins to turn golden, about 15 minutes.
