Whether it's a late night snack or a side-dish to a meal, these little eggplant pizza bites provide the deliciousness of pizza without the excess calories, sodium, cholesterol and saturated fat found in a typical pizza.
If you're not a huge fan of veggies, I highly encourage you to try cooking with eggplant. It's subtle flavor and soft texture tends to receive a positive response! Keep the dark purple exterior of the eggplant on with cooking as it offers an assortment of micronutrients, including anthocyanins (antioxidants - flavonoids), that helps improve immunity against illness and injury.
Pre-Heat oven to 420F and place aluminum foil on a baking sheet
Place sliced eggplant on sheet. In the following order, layer the eggplant: drizzle olive oil, sprinkle garlic spread seasoning, spread pizza sauce (leaving a little room around the edges), sprinkle grated parmesan and then lightly season with salt to taste.
Bake in the oven for about 10-12min or until the eggplant is cooked through.
Optional: At the end of baking, I broiled my pizza bites for about 60 seconds give the pizza bites a little more browning. :)
