Low-carb Eggplant Pizza

If you have no idea for what to make with eggplant, just give this Low-Carb Eggplant Pizza a try. It’s loaded with all flavors of a pizza yet served in an eggplant slice (as the crust). This recipe purposely comes to me when I’m chatting with other “chefs-of-home” on a group chat. My friend recommends me this as it gets her family hooked. I do not hesitate to give it a go and omg, it actually works. My family all love it!

This eggplant pizza is easy to make. Eggplant is sliced lengthwise, rubbed with olive oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper, and baked until hot and start to cook. Eggplant slices are next stuffed with cooked onion and spinach mixture, sprinkled with shredded mozzarella, followed by chopped oregano. Finally, they are baked until cooked through and cheese is melted and bubbly. Coming out tasty and flavorful, they’re enough to make the meal more complete.

Along with ground chicken, ground beef, cauliflower rice, coconut flour, almond flour and cheese, eggplant is a tasty and healthy crust for pizza. The point here is that it’s still tasty and flavorful. To enjoy a better taste, you can drizzle your pizza with a favorite sauce and serve it alongside baked, grilled or roasted meat. Enjoy!
