Diva Tasting: Eggplant Pizza …

Eggplant Pizza

2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt

2 Medium Eggplant

2 Teaspoons Greek Seasoning

1 Cup Pizza Sauce

2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

15 Slices Pepperoni, Or To Taste

2 Tablespoons Sliced Black Olives, Or To Taste

Directions

Step 1 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.

Step 2 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Step 3 Rinse eggplant completely, then pat dry. Return to the baking sheet and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.

Step 4 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.

Variation: Substitute chopped cremini mushrooms for pepperoni for the vegetarian.
