Ingredients

  • 1 large eggplant, peeled and sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper  
  • 1/2 cup prepared vegetarian pizza sauce or pesto sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese or soy or vegan cheese
  • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup kalamata olives, halved
  • 2 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • Crushed red pepper flakes 

Directions

Special equipment: Special equipment: One 12-inch pizza pan

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Brush the pizza pan generously with some of the olive oil. 

Spread the eggplant slices over the pizza pan to cover, overlapping the slices so that no pan shows through. Brush the eggplant generously with the remaining olive oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Bake until the eggplant begins to brown, 10 to 15 minutes. 

Spread the pizza sauce or pesto over the eggplant, and then top with the cheese, onions, olives, tomatoes and bell peppers. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Return to the oven and continue baking until the cheese is melted and begins to brown, about 15 minutes longer.
