Pizza is one of our very favorite comfort foods. Before going totally gluten & grain free, we would always order a Papa Johns pizza after a particularly stressful and exhausting day. There’s just something amazing about the gooey cheese mixing with the marinara sauce on a thick crust. I think that pizza has been the hardest thing for me to give up. But, recently, thanks to a search on Pinterest I re-thought pizza crust. When we received an eggplant in our Abundant Harvest box, I knew it was time to try it out.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Slice Eggplant into 6 slices, arrange slices onto a baking sheet. Bake eggplant for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, make or heat up tomato sauce & warm sausage.
Remove eggplant slices from oven, preheat oven broiler. Evenly spoon tomato sauce over eggplant slices. Next place basil leaves on top of tomato sauce. Then sprinkle with goat cheese & sausage. Brown slices in broiler until cheese is melted.
Verdict? Super yummy! It definitely met our comfort food pizza craving. Feel free to use ingredients that you have on hand.
