How to make Eggplant Pizza
Start by cutting the eggplants into thick slices and lay in on a paper towel. Season the eggplant with salt, then turn it over and sprinkle the other side with salt. Keep them aside for few minutes.
Blot both the sides well with the additional paper towel. It will make the eggplant sweat out the bitterness and would make them sweet.
Then with the help of a brush, apply oil on both the sides of eggplant slices. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425’F and take out a baking sheet.
Place the oiled eggplants on the baking sheet and place it in the oven, bake for 3 minutes. When eggplants turn brown and tender, turn them over and bake for another 3 minutes.
Once both the sides are done, take them out and spread 1 tbsp. red chili sauce on each eggplant slice. Then chop tomatoes and layer them on eggplant slices.
Lastly, spread shredded mozzarella cheese on each slice. Also, add basil leaves and season it with black pepper.
Put the baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 5 minutes, till the cheese, melts completely. Once done, serve immediately.
