    This was good! I baked the eggplant on parchment paper (less messy), first coating it with olive oil and spices (salt, pepper, garlic, oregano, parsley, basil...). Bake it until you can easily pierce it with a fork. We cooked sausage and added it to the topping with tomato sauce and a shredded Italian cheese mix. Will definitely make again.  -  29 Jul 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really enjoyed this recipe. I follow a ketogenic diet, so traditional pizza is on my forbidden foods list. I decided to peel the eggplant, slice as directed, and then toss in salt and let stand in a colander for about 30 mins (to pull water out of the eggplant). I was surprised by how much liquid came out and I'm really glad that I added this step because my end product was just barely dry enough to be firm underneath my toppings. If I would have skipped the salting I think my pizzas would have been mushy. I topped mine with lots of cheese, bacon, and sausage...piled on high. Delicious. Thanks for sharing.  -  13 Jun 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
