Healthy Party Snacks: Eggplant Pizza

Here is a recipe for a healthy party snack with a twist - the eggplant pizza! If you love serving unique and healthy appetizers, look no further. This eggplant pizza recipe is super healthy and is 100% real food. No maida or flour in this recipe, just natural ingredients that will have your guests licking their fingers. The base is an eggplant (baingan) and you can use your favourite pizza sauce recipe. Let's begin!

Ingredients
3 large eggplant
2 cups of mozzarella cheese (freshly grated is preferable)
1/2 cup parmesan (again, freshly grated is best!)
Salt and pepper to taste

For Pizza Sauce:
1 clove garlic, mashed and minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 tbsp parsley (dried is fine but fresh is better)
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 carrot 

To make pizza sauce, lightly brown garlic in a large frying pan (with a little oil.) Add tomato paste, tomato sauce, parley, oregano, and salt. Bring to boil then reduce heat and simmer. Add the carrot.

While the sauce is simmering, cut eggplants lengthwise into 3/4 inch thick “pizza bases.” Brush with olive oil and place under broiler until brown. Remove, flip and add pizza sauce, and half the cheese mixture. Then feel free to add additional toppings (some favorites are fresh peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach, and pre-cooked broccoli). Cover with remaining cheese, add salt and pepper to taste, and place under broiler until cheese bubbles.

Serve warm with remaining pizza sauce for dipping.
