Flowers and pizza – great combo

    pass a long 005 After a pleasant Easter Sunday in The Point, I returned home and faced an empty cupboard and a beautiful arrangement of spring flowers from my son William.
    That seemed to call for a nice light supper.
    I was yearning for something savory  and perhaps even healthy.
    Was this me talking? Or had an alien taken over my body?
    After a bit of rumbling around in the fridge,  I found quarter of a dying  eggplant, a half used bottle of pizza sauce, and some Swiss cheese.

    Hmm, what could I do with that?
    I had an idea.  Since I’m not eating bread or white stuff these days, maybe I could create a pizza from the ingredients that needed using up!
    So I created mini eggplant pizzas and they were delicious and will become a staple in my house.
    Here’s what you can do if you find yourself in my predicament:
    Mini Eggplant Pizzas
    Take 1 eggplant or some portion thereof – peel it and  cut into half-inch thick slices.  Lay on paper towels and sprinkle liberally with salt to let them sweat.  This removes the bitter taste.  After 30 minutes, dab off the “perspiration” – Next time I may even rinse them because they were a bit salty for my taste.
    Brush or spray with olive oil and brown in 425 degree oven for 6-8 minutes, turning once. Top the cooked slices with tomato or Pizza Sauce – whatever cheese you might have on hand, and sprinkle with your favorite seasonings.  I used pepper flakes, fresh basil and  garlic pepper.  Pepperoni would be a nice addition but I’m going for healthy. Run back under broiler until cheese is melted.

  1. Not all of the Conveyor Pizza Oven produced equal nor they have a tendency do the exact same position. I extremely suggest that you just seek the advice of a expert prior to buying one
