Chef’s Corner

Eggplant Pizza

My friend Chef Jessica who I met in culinary school is visiting and I am borrowing a recipe from her with a few little Homegrown tweaks. Eggplant pizzas are simple, quick and full of your favorite vegetables. Start with eggplant, top it with tomatoes or sauce, some veggies and cheese and you’re ready to pop your pizza in the oven and enjoy. Below is the recipe. I hope you enjoy your gluten free, veg packed, Homegrown pizza!

For the Pizza:
Japanese eggplant, sliced lengthwise
Tomatoes, sliced
Toppings like mushrooms, onions or olives
1 T. sea salt
Olive oil
Dried Italian seasoning (oregano, rosemary, thyme, basil)
Basil leaves, torn in small pieces
Grated Mozzarella (vegan or dairy)
Grated Parmesan (vegan or dairy)
Red pepper flakes

Salt eggplant and let rest 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a parchment lined baking sheet lay out eggplant and bake for 5 minutes. Top baked eggplant with tomatoes, Italian seasonings, your favorite toppings and mozzarella cheese. Bake for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is golden. Finish cooked pizzas with basil, parmesan and red pepper flakes.

Buon Appetito!
Chefs Jessica and Amy
