Cheesy Eggplant Pizza
1 large globe eggplant
1 jar marinara sauce
½ cup parmesan cheese
¼ cup fresh basil
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon red pepper flake
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 cup cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350°F/180˚C.
Slice the eggplant into ½-inch pieces.
Salt the slices and leave them to “sweat” for 20 minutes then wipe them off.
Slather each slice with olive oil.
Bake for 25 minutes.
In a medium bowl, combine all pizza sauce ingredients and stir until homogenous.
Remove eggplant slices from the oven and pour about 2 tablespoons of the sauce mixture onto each one.
Sprinkle mozzarella and cheddar on each slice.
Put the slices back in the oven for 1-2 minutes to melt the cheese.
Allow to cool before serving.
