Grilled Eggplant Pizza image


  • Prepare the grill and let burn down to medium coals or heat gas grill on medium heat.
  • In a colander set over another bowl, salt the eggplant and let drain for 30 minutes then rinse and dry.
  • Brush the eggplant slices with olive oil and season with pepper. Toss the peppers with a little olive oil. Place both on the grill and cook the eggplant until browned on the first side, about 3 minutes. The slices should be browned between the grill marks when ready to turn. Move them away from direct heat and cook on the second side until tender, about 10 minutes total. Cut the grilled slices into 1/2-inch dice.
  • Cook the peppers, turning as necessary, until charred all over. Remove the peppers to a bowl. Cover and let the peppers steam to loosen the skins. When cool enough to handle, peel, seed, and tear into long, thin strips.
  • Divide the dough into 6 equal balls. Working on a surface free of flour, roll each ball under your palm. As it rolls, it will stick slightly to the surface, creating tension that helps form a tight, round ball. Dust the work surface lightly with flour, pat each ball down lightly, dust the tops with flour, cover with a towel, and let rise for about 15 minutes. With a rolling pin, roll out each ball into a circle 8 or 9 inches in diameter and about 1/8-inch thick.
  • Have the grill ready at medium heat. Have the 1/4 cup olive oil, eggplant, peppers, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, if using, olives, and cheese in bowls and ready by the side of the grill.
  • Brush each dough round with about 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Place on the grill, oiled side up, and cook until browned on the underside, about 2 minutes. Turn and, working quickly, brush each round with another 1 teaspoon olive oil. Then scatter each with 1/6 each of the garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, if using, eggplant, bell peppers, olives, and cheese. Cover the grill and cook until the rounds are browned on the bottom and the cheese has softened, about 7 minutes. Transfer to plates and top each with an equal amount of the arugula. Spritz lightly with vinegar. Serve immediately.

3 eggplants, about 3 pounds total, sliced 3/4 inches thick
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing on vegetables, plus about 1/4 cup
2 large red or yellow bell peppers
1 recipe Piadine dough (or prepared pizza dough)
All-purpose flour, for dusting
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano leaves
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
About 1 cup pitted kalamata olives
About 1/2 pound buffalo mozzarella cheese or provolone, coarsely shredded
About 3 cups packed arugula
Balsamic vinegar


In a pathetic attempt to make eggplant parmigiana, I created this instead. It's very easy and uses basic ingredients that are probably already in your kitchen. I've made it about a dozen times in the past few months and my husband loves it. It's a very flexible recipe and I've tried it a few different ways already and it always tastes great and surprisingly like pizza. Goes well with any pasta dish or risotto.

  • Mix the oil, garlic, basil, and oregano and drizzle over the eggplant evenly. Bake for 25-35 minutes, until the eggplants begin to brown. Remove from oven.
  • Flip over each slice of eggplant. Place cheese on top of each slice, then cover all the slices evenly with tomato sauce. Return to oven.
  • Cook for another 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melting and bubbling. Remove from oven. Serve alone or with pasta or risotto.

Eggplant Pizza image


  • Broil eggplant:
  • Cut eggplant into 1/3-inch-thick rounds and arrange in 1 layer on a foil-lined large baking sheet. Lightly brush both sides with oil and season with salt. Broil 2 to 3 inches from heat until golden brown and tender, 3 to 8 minutes on each side.
  • Make dough:
  • Dissolve yeast in warm water. Blend flour and salt in a food processor. Add oil and blend. With motor running, add yeast mixture all at once, blending until dough forms a ball. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface 5 minutes. Put in an oiled large bowl and turn to coat. Let rise, covered with plastic wrap, in a warm place until doubled in bulk, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. While dough is rising, put a pizza stone on lowest rack of oven (remove other racks) and preheat oven to 500°F.
  • Dust dough with flour on a floured surface, then shape and stretch into a 12- to 13-inch round. Sprinkle a baker's peel generously with flour and carefully transfer dough to it. Jerk peel; if dough sticks, lift it and sprinkle flour underneath.
  • Assemble pizza:
  • Toss together cheeses and sprinkle 1/4 over dough. Cover with eggplant, overlapping it, and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Heat oil in a small skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then cook garlic and red pepper, stirring, until just fragrant, 30 to 40 seconds. Spoon evenly over eggplant.
  • Line up far edge of peel with far edge of stone and tilt peel, jerking it gently. When edge of pizza touches stone, quickly pull back peel to transfer to stone (do not move pizza) and bake until dough is crisp and browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Slide peel under pizza to remove from oven.

1 large eggplant (1 1/4 pound)
About 3 tablespoons olive oil
For dough
1 (1/4-ounce) package fast-acting yeast
2/3 cup warm water (110-115°F.)
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 ounces grated mozzarella (3/4 cup)
3/4 ounces grated Asiago or Parmesan (1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes


Sliced eggplant rounds give you a great crust on which to build a lower-carb pizza. You can add any pizza-type toppings that you like, just be sure they are pre-cooked if necessary.

Lower-Carb Eggplant Pizza image


  • Slice ends off eggplant and cut into 3/4-inch rounds. Place on a baking sheet and sprinkle liberally on both sides with salt. Let sweat until most of the moisture seeps out, about 20 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Rinse eggplant completely, then pat dry. Return to the baking sheet and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and top each slice with pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and olives. Return to the oven and bake just until cheese is melted and sauce is heated through, about 5 minutes.

In Italy, when high-quality buffalo mozzarella is used to top a pizza, it's often added after baking instead of before. The heat of the just-cooked pizza softens but doesn't melt the cheese, which retains its milky, sweet flavor and stays supple instead of becoming stretchy. Here, the cheese crowns a pizza topped with tomato, roasted eggplant, chile flakes and fresh basil leaves. If you can't get good buffalo mozzarella, substitute dollops of fresh ricotta. Or, you could experiment with burrata, draining it first. Save the cream, mix it with olive oil and salt, then use it to top ripe tomatoes instead of dressing. And if you are in a rush, substitute store-bought pizza dough.

Roasted Eggplant and Buffalo Mozzarella Pizza image


  • Make the dough: Mix the yeast, warm water and olive oil in the bowl of an electric stand mixer or food processor, and let the mixture sit until the yeast is foamy, about 5 minutes.
  • Add in flour and salt, and using the dough hook or food processor blade, beat or pulse it until a smooth, slightly elastic dough forms, 2 to 3 minutes. Lightly coat a bowl with olive oil, place dough in the bowl, and turn the dough to coat it with oil. Cover the bowl loosely with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap, place in the refrigerator and let it sit overnight.
  • Divide the dough in quarters, and shape each piece into a tight, compact ball. Place the dough balls on a lightly oiled baking sheet or plate, loosely cover with plastic wrap and let them rise in the refrigerator another 1 to 2 hours (or up to 6 hours).
  • When ready to bake the pizzas, place racks in the top third and bottom third of the oven. Put a pizza stone on top rack, and heat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Prepare the toppings: On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the eggplant generously with oil, salt and pepper. Roast eggplant on the bottom rack until caramelized and tender, 40 to 45 minutes, tossing halfway through. Remove from the oven and raise the oven heat to 500 degrees.
  • On a piece of parchment paper, stretch out one of the balls of dough to a 12-inch round. Spread 2 tablespoons tomato purée on top, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Scatter on 1/4 of the sliced garlic, a large pinch of red-pepper flakes and drizzle with oil to taste.
  • Arrange 1/4 of the roasted eggplant on top. Use a pizza peel or cookie sheet to slide the parchment onto the pizza stone. Bake until crispy and golden on the top and bottom, 7 to 10 minutes. Use tongs to pull the pizza out of the oven and onto a wire rack to cool.
  • Immediately top with chunks of cheese, pulling it apart with your hands into bite-size pieces. Top with basil, more oil to taste and flaky sea salt. Repeat with the remaining dough and toppings.

Eggplant makes a wonderful alternative to your ordinary pizza crust. I have tons of eggplant from my garden so I make these about once a week! Fun way to get your kids to eat their veggies. I suggest adding pepperoni, mushroom, and peppers.

Eggplant Pizzas image


  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the mozzarella cheese is melted, 5 to 10 minutes.
