Vegan & Grain-Free Eggplant Pizza a.k.a. Healthier Pizza Options FTW!

YEP, VEGAN + GRAIN-FREE EGGPLANT PIZZA IS A THING!!

BONUS:

  • it’s easier to make than real pizza
  • a lot healthier too!
  • you can customize the “crust” to your tastebuds & follow the same recipe but with zucchini, sweet potato or any other type of squash!
  • the toppings are up to you – let your imagination run wild!

The recipe is coming to the blog soon but let me tease you just a bit… I roasted the eggplant just enough so it was cooked but not mushy, then topped it with salsa, chopped spinach, cherry tomatoes, roasted shallot, vegan Parmesan (I buy a blend that contains nutritional yeast, walnuts, sunflower + hemp seeds, garlic + sea salt) + hemp hearts for extra healthy fats + protein & let me tell you, IT HIT THAT PIZZA SPOT REAL NICE.

I don’t know about you but if my pizza crust can be full of fibre, antioxidants & vitamins + minerals, I’ll take it over refined white flour!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 eggplant, sliced lengthwise into 1” slices
  • Sea salt for sprinkling
  • 2 tbsp. organic salsa or tomato sauce
  • Nutritional yeast or vegan Parmesan blend for sprinkling
  • Fresh or roasted veggies of choice (I used tomatoes + roasted shallot)
  • Shredded spinach or kale
  • Hemp hearts for sprinkling

TO MAKE:

  • Preheat oven to 350F & place the sliced eggplant on a baking sheet.
  • Roast for 10 minutes until slightly softened but not mushy.
  • Broil for 2 minutes to get the edges crispy.

  • Enjoy!!
