Eggplant Pizza

{{totalReview}}
A simple yet tasty dish that is a unique replacement for pizza, this Eggplant Pizza is a healthy keto-friendly addition to your holiday party dinner table. Using sliced eggplants as the "pizza" base, I've spread Hoisin sauce on each slice, topping them off with sautéed mushrooms and a generous sprinkle of scallions and mozzarella for the signature gooey cheese pull. With this vegetarian dish, you can easily celebrate the festivities guilt-free!

Instructions

  1. Dry out eggplants

    • Preheat oven to 200ºC.
    • Slice the eggplant to 1cm thick pieces (horizontally), then sprinkle it with salt to draw out some of the bitterness and moisture. 
    • Let it sit for at least 20 minutes up to 2 hours.
    • This will be the pizza crust.

    | For a sturdier eggplant crust, cut thinner slices and place them between two sheets of paper towels for a few hours.

  2. Bake eggplants

    • Use a paper towel to pat the eggplant slices dry and to remove excess salt.
    • Brush olive oil onto the eggplant slices and place them on a baking sheet. 
    • Bake for 10 minutes.


  3. Saute ingredients and lay on eggplants

    • While the eggplant is baking, prepare the mushroom topping. Sauté all the ingredients together adding the chopped onions last not to overcook them.
    • Once the eggplant has been baked, use a spoon to spread some hoisin sauce on each of the eggplant slices and add the mushroom topping
