Go Healthy and Meatless with Eggplant Vegetable Pizzas

Eggplant Veggie Pizza
Cathy Kates

Ok, they aren’t that pretty and my co-host Ken would NOT approve because there is no meat.  But, after my husband’s doctor said we should be eating more fruits and veggies, I thought I’d give it a shot.  Although, the credit for this healthy alternative to pizza has to go to the makers of Ragu Pizza Sauce.

It’s easy to make and only takes four ingredients.  I had time to empty the dishwasher, fold towels and put away clothes while I was making them.  Plus, if you’ve always wanted to try eggplant and have no idea how to cook it, this is a great “starter” recipe.

What you need:

  • 1 large eggplant, washed with the ends cut off.  Then cut it into slices about half an inch thick.
  • olive oil
  • pizza sauce (I used Ragu, any will do)
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • optional:  garlic powder (I sprinkled some on before baking for added flavor)


Preheat the oven to 425.  After washing and slicing your eggplant, brush both sides with olive oil and place on a cookie pan with edges (also known as a jelly roll pan).

Bake for 8 minutes, then turn them and bake for another 8 minutes or until eggplant is tender.

Remove from oven and spread pizza sauce (sorta thick) on each slice, then top with the shredded mozzarella cheese.

Bake for an additional 6 minutes or until cheese is melted.

We really liked it and since we ate healthy, we allowed ourselves a bowl of ice cream :)
