Roasted Eggplant Pizza- Unique and Delicious

Updated on August 6, 2014

If you are looking for a different kind of pizza to make that is also vegetarian, try this one. The roasted eggplant mixed with the garlic, onion and cheese will melt in your mouth. If you don't care to make your own pizza crust, a store bought crust will do just fine. 

This Roasted Eggplant Pizza is quite versatile, so have a bit of fun with it. Add different vegetables or change the type of cheese for a whole new pizza experience.

      I've had eggplant Parmesan before, so I bet it would be good on pizza too. : )
