Though the idea of putting pineapples on pizza is for me sacrilegious, there is actually no defined rule as to what one can use as pizza ingredients. That means you can practically put anything that you want on it. And with that said, why not an eggplant?

Yeah, the idea might not be that enticing for some. But let me assure you, it completely takes the idea of what a pizza is to a whole new different ballgame.

Your Ingredients


Good quality olive oil2 large Italian eggplants

1/2 pounds of fresh whole-milk mozzarella

3 large ripe tomatoes,

1 bunch of fresh basil

Balsamic vinegar

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

How to make your pizza eggplant with tomatoes and Basil

First, you have to choose if you want to use a barbecue grill or a broiler. For this example, I will be using a barbecue grill.

Go cut your eggplants into ½ inch thick pieces and brush olive on both of its sides. Place them on a baking sheet and set aside for later.

Get your mozzarella and cut it crosswise. You then slice them in half, around ¼ inch thick. The idea is to create a half moon shape with the cut pieces. Do the same to the tomatoes.

Once done, arrange your tomatoes and mozzarella in a decorative pattern around the edge of a serving platter.

Now get your eggplant slices and thrown them in the barbecue grill until they are charred on both sides.

Once done, arrange your eggplants in the center of the serving platter where your mozzarella and tomatoes are place.

Pluck around a dozen leaves from your basil, roll them like you would a cigar, then slice into it crosswise.

Scatter them around the serving platter, then drizzle some balsamic vinegar and olive oil over your tomatoes, mozzarella and eggplant spread.

Before serving, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Personally I don’t like really greasy pizzas. Gives me a stomach ache… But besides that it didn’t look all bad
and ChIpotle stuffs their burritos more than this guy stuffs that Meatball Hero
I’m just sayin XD
I don’t get why people let Ramsey judge their store… I mean, SO MANY of these restaurants close after they’ve been on this show…

Pizza is one of my best food. That’s why i always order my pizza from pizza hub and i also have to pay so much money for that. But after reading this post i think i also can make pizza in my home. Thanks for this recipe .

I am planning to substitute in some Vegan Cheese for the Mozarella and this recipe and give this one a try. Eggplants are quite cheap at the moment and this is going to be a great easy weekend lunch.

Wow! This sounds great, I really love eggplant, and truthfully I never would have thought of using these ingredients this way! I am a little worried about the total time being more than an hour, but this just sounds so good, that I think I’ll have to try it. I know my kids will love of it, thanks to the pizza influence! ;)

Healthy and delicious terms don’t fit to all items. Pizza is delicious but not healty. Eggplant pizaa fits both.This is a healthy and delicious recipe as far i know. This would be my today’s dinner.

I love the idea of using eggplant as a mini pizza base. Its neutral enough in flavour and sturdy enough to hold the toppings. Fantastic if you are watching your carb intake.

Knife is very sharp. Wish it came with a sheath though. Handle is very long. This is our 3rd purchase from Chef Remi. We will be purchasing many more products from Chef Remi.

Rachel Foutch said: Perfect whisks for any kitchen!

These whisks work to do an amazing job in the kitchen. I love all of Chef Remi's products, these whisks in particular are my favorite Chef Remi tools though. I whisk often when cooking, and they both did the job perfectly, they cleaned up easily, and even better they don't trap liquid inside of them like many others do. I have often been whisking dry ingredients with other brands of whisk and found them to start suddenly dripping some water out...this is not ideal of course when doing something that requires precision and also who knows how long that liquid has been there or that it's only water! I love my Chef Remi whisk and will never use another brand for this ever again. These cleaned up so easily with the silicone that everything just wiped and washed right off!

Eva Connover said: Must have spatulas

Super satisfied with this spatula set, each one is different shape and the material is not stiff but not too soft. The handle is sturdy and very comfortable to the hand. 100% recommended and the price cant be beat!!!
