Pizza and a movie with Marika: a great Friday evening.
Here's what we ate:
1 small eggplant, sliced into 1/4" rounds
prepared pizza dough (I typically use this one)
2 c. of your favorite tomato sauce
1 small red onion, chopped
4 oz. mozzarella, grated
a couple pinches of red pepper flakes
Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add eggplant (as many rounds as will comfortably fit) in a single layer. Cook 3-4 minutes. Drizzle with additional olive oil. Flip and cook on other side 3-4 minutes, until eggplant is tender. Set aside and repeat with additional eggplant if needed.
On the prepared pizza dough, spread tomato sauce. Sprinkle with chopped red onions. Place the eggplant rounds over the sauce and onions in a single layer. Cover with cheese. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
Cook according to pizza dough directions.
