Bake Eggplant And Cheese For A Twist On Pizza

Baigan or melongene pizza is the perfect way to sneak vegetables into your diet without even noticing. Roasted eggplant becomes meaty and soft, creating the perfect base for tart tomato paste, creamy cheese and fresh vegetables.

Get creative and use whatever toppings you would like. We don’t miss the meat because the eggplant is juicy and delicious.
