A great alternative to traditional pizza crust, eggplant is grated and baked until crispy perfection.


These ingredients are:

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and brush with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil.

Place grated eggplant in a colander in the sink. Sprinkle with salt, toss, and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Gently squeeze eggplant to remove extra moisture.

Combine eggplant and remaining crust ingredients in a bowl; mix well. Place mixture on a baking sheet and spread dough into one large or two smaller pizzas, 1/8- to 1/4-inch-thick.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove crust from the oven and brush the top with remaining olive oil. Carefully flip crust over and return to the oven for 15 additional minutes.

Add toppings and bake until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.


Variations: Try using leftover dips and spreads, such as olive tapenade, artichoke dip or pesto. Top with salami, sautéed greens, feta cheese, fresh basil, roasted red peppers or sun-dried tomatoes.

The crust can be prepared ahead of time and kept in the freezer, tightly wrapped, for up to 3 months.

I am excited to try this today, as I am always looking for great recipes that are gluten- and soy-free. I just wanted to point out, however, that this recipe is also listed as egg-free, but there is egg included in the ingredients list!
