Eggplant Pizza (Vegan)

Sometimes, a girl just craves pizza. And let’s be honest, I’m not talking about just eating one slice. You ever had one of those days where you want to have an entire pizza ALL TO YOURSELF? Yeah, I was having one of those days.

I finally knocked some sense into myself and realized I could still enjoy a pizza dish without feeling overly full or guilty. I wasn’t committed to trying another cauliflower crust pizza–I was too tired, and not motivated. And then the stars aligned, and I stumbled upon this amazing recipe and decided to go for it.

Directions:

  • Spread tomato sauce on each slice (around 1 tsp of sauce per slice).

  • Use half a slice of cheese for each mini pizza.
    • Yes, I used vegan cheese. I actually didn’t notice that much of a difference. It’s healthy, gluten free, and only 40 calories a slice. Anyone else out there have a positive or negative experience with these vegan products?
