Comments

Very quick, tasty and simple pizza recipe! I thought the eggplant was the perfect substitute for crust if you are looking for more veggies. The eggplant added a very nice flavor to the toppings and also a nice moisture level that crust do not provide. I used Food Hero "No cook pizza sauce" along with this recipe and I think they were a perfect combination. The carrot and eggplant flavors combined very nicely for a sweet flavor profile. My one critique is the eggplant came out on the softer side which caused the middle to cave in due to my heavy loaded on toppings. I tried another batch with putting a cooling rack over on top of the cookie sheet which allowed the head to directly pass by the bottom of the eggplant and it crisped it up to the right amount to get rid of the softer bottom. 
I will be adding this recipe into my frequent recipe rotation. 

The eggplant in our garden grew well! Thanks for this simple and versatile recipe. We first had these with grilled chicken and the leftovers went into a toasted sandwich. The second time I froze extras on a baking sheet and put them into a freezer container to enjoy this fall. I think they will be good in a sandwich or cut into pieces and mixed with pasta. I will probably add more tomato sauce, too.
