A great recipe from the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox.
Here is an easy way to make a quick and portable single-serving-size pizza that can be handily transported to school or work. Of course, any number of variations are possible by adding different ingredients, such as green bell peppers, sausage, mushrooms, etc.
- 1 medium eggplant, sliced crosswise in 1/2″ thick slices
- 1 cup pizza sauce
- 2 ounces sliced pepperoni
- 4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
Arrange the eggplant slices on a baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until just lightly browned.
Remove from the oven and spread with the pizza sauce. Place 1 or 2 slices of pepperoni on each eggplant slice, then sprinkle generously with the cheese.
Drizzle about 1 teaspoon olive oil over the top of each. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
