Calories 91kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 Large Eggplant (note 1)
  • 1 Cup Low Carb Pizza Sauce or pizza sauce of your choice (note 2)
  • 2 Cups Mozzarella Cheese shredded

Toppings (note 3):

  • 1/4 Cup Black Olives
  • 1/4 Cup Red Onions chopped
  • Italian Seasoning

Instructions

  • Prep. Preheat oven to 400 F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Eggplant. Slice eggplant (1 large) into ½” slices. Now, sweat the eggplant, which can be done 1 of two ways:
    1. With salt: Place slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with salt. Allow the eggplant to sweat for 10-12 minutes. Dab off the water with a paper towel, and repeat these steps on the other side.
    2. In the microwave: Place sliced eggplant on a paper towel-lined plate and cook on high for 5 minutes. You may need to do this in batches.
  • Top + Bake. Add pizza sauce (1 cup), sprinkle with cheese (2 cups), then add your toppings. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until the cheese becomes golden brown around the edges. Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes

  1. Eggplant: Use a globe eggplant (the most common variety), as it has the best texture for this dish.
  2. Pizza sauce: most store-bought pizza sauces are loaded with sugar, so if you aren't making homemade, read labels carefully.
  3. Toppings: feel free to use whatever you prefer here.
  4. Nutritional information is for 1 slice if you slice your eggplant into 10 slices (or divide your pizza into 10 servings), and includes the toppings listed above:
