Don’t wanna bother with Fathead dough? Try these alternative mini personal pizzas instead!

These eggplant pizzas are really easy to make, you simply slice the eggplant and roast or grill the slices until the eggplant just starts to turn tender, top it, and then bake them until the cheese gets all melty. Mmmm, I’m drooling.

Don’t skip sweating the eggplant. The salt removes excess moisture; you will see beads of moisture sweating from the eggplant as it sits. … Since the eggplant has less moisture in it, it is able to soak up the oils used when cooking. The result is a more tender, less bitter, and tastier eggplant.
