Healthy Mini Garlic Pizzas (No Bread At All, What?!)

Sorry followers! I hope you’re enjoying all of the recipes I am throwing at you right now. This next one is more for kids (adults can enjoy too of course), but I made it tonight for all the little munchkins who love love pizza. Well, this is a healthy style pizza! Want to know why? It’s made with eggplant and not bread. And, the best part – it tastes even better! There won’t be any more complains about wanting pizza. I love it so much – it’s the perfect mini pizza, just like a Bagel Bit but healthier and fresher! They are bite size pieces so you can simply make a few as appetizers, snacks, side dishes, or make several as a meal – it’s flexible. So delicious, you will not want to order pizza again – it’s simple and yummy.

The Recipe

Yields 8 – 10 mini pizzas

1 eggplant, chopped into circles

2 tbsp cheddar or mozzarella cheese (if vegan, use vegan soy cheese or substitute with some veggies!)

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp garlic powder

8 – 9 fresh grape tomatoes, diced

—————————————————————————————————–

Directions

1. Chop the eggplant into circles.

2. Lay them facing up one side on top of a foil and drizzle a little olive oil on top of each. Place the foil into the oven (I used my toaster oven and it worked just fine). Roast for about 5 minutes and then flip the pieces over and roast the other side for about 5 minutes.

3. Remove your slices (they will be hot so be careful!). On the side, dice your tomatoes and crush with the backside of your spoon so they become mushy (a little like the consistency of sauce). Drizzle the tomatoes with the remaining olive oil and mix together.

4. Top your eggplant slices with the tomatoes and then the cheese. Sprinkle your garlic powder on top.

5. If you want the cheese melted, microwave your pizzas for about a minute or you can enjoy just like that since the eggplant is already warm!
