Eggplant Pizzas Recipe

Description

A lightly fried slice of eggplant replaces the dough in this versatile pizza.

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 large eggplant, sliced into 1/2 inch rounds
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 (14 ounce) can pizza sauce
  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat the eggs in a bowl. Mix the flour, salt, pepper, and oregano in a 1 gallon resealable plastic bag. Dip each eggplant slice in the egg, then drop the eggplant in the flour mixture one at a time, shaking the bag to coat the eggplant.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Place the eggplant slices in the skillet to cook, turning occasionally, until evenly browned. Drain the eggplant slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Arrange the eggplant in one layer on a baking sheet. Spoon enough pizza sauce to cover each eggplant slice. Top each eggplant with mozzarella cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the mozzarella cheese is melted, 5 to 10 minutes.
