About this Recipe

I love using veggies as vehicles of flavor. For dipping, for topping… even for turning into pizzas! I’m always looking for inventive ways to use what I have in the kitchen, and when I discovered that eggplant worked as a pizza “crust,” I had to give it a try. It was a hit for everyone – kids included!

The best part? You just need eight ingredients and 30 minutes. Try them for your next game-day appetizer or fun afternoon snack!
