Recipe by pamela t.
READY IN: 25mins




  • Peel eggplant and cut it into rounds the short way (width-wise) slices should be about ¼ “ thick.
  • Place slices on paper towels. Salt the eggplant and set aside. This allows the eggplant to “sweat.”.
  • Mix the two cheeses together. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile mix pizza sauce with basil, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • After 10 minutes, use a paper towel to dab at eggplant. The slices should not be wet.
  • Arrange eggplant rounds on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Ladle a spoonful of pizza sauce on each slice. Spread out almost to the edges (like you would a pizza).
  • Top with a few pieces of mushroom and tomatoes; top with cheese mixture.
  • Bake at 350F about 12-15 minutes until cheese is melted. Keep an eye on this as ovens vary.
  • Cut basil into chiffonade (long, thin strips) and top each “pizza”.
  • If desired, build your “pizza” creation using whatever veggies you prefer. This recipe was designed for a contest, hence the ingredients of canned tomatoes and mushrooms.
