Mini Eggplant Pizzas; Low Calorie!

I've been working on my 25 by 25 list, again! In doing so, I made a new recipe; Mini Eggplant Pizzas.

New Recipe 6 of 25:

Mini Eggplant Pizzas

Servings per recipe: 4
Nutritional Information: 119 calories; 7.5 fat; 9 carbs; 5 protein


1 eggplant - 3 inches in diameter, peeled and cut into 4 half-inch thick slices
4 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup pasta sauce
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat the oven or toaster oven to 425 degrees F. Brush both sides of the eggplant with the oil and season with the salt and pepper.

2. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake until browned and almost tender, 6 to 8 minutes, turning once.

3. Spread 1 tablespoon of pasta sauce on each eggplant slice. Top with the shredded cheese. Bake until the cheese melts, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve hot.

These mini eggplants were a big hit in my house! The only change I will be making next time is that I will actually follow the directions and remove the skin prior to baking. My husband wasn't really a fan of the skin, but I didn't mind it, myself!
