Gluten-free eggplant pizza bites step-by-step recipe with photos.
In my earlier post, I have shared with you my recipe for eggplant feta pizza. This time I am sharing another eggplant pizza bites recipe, but with a difference. This time the eggplants are not the topping, but the base of the pizza (or shall I say mini-pizzas or pizza bites). These gluten-free pizza bites are absolutely delicious and perfect for a light meal. As I do with most of my pizzas, I have given an Indian twist to this pizza as well.
Eggplant is a very versatile vegetable with numerous health benefits. The eggplant or aubergine is a great source of vitamin and minerals. It is an integral part of every Indian kitchen and is featured in the Meditarrian diet too.
To make these mini pizzas/pizza bites, I brushed the eggplant slices with some oil and pre-baked them. I then slathered it with my quick & delicious Indian style pizza sauce. I kept the toppings really simple – fresh cherry tomatoes, baby spinach, and of course mozzarella cheese (a pizza is not a pizza without cheese right!). I then baked it again till the cheese melted and turned slightly golden, exactly how we love it!
Try this recipe and I am sure you will enjoy it as much as we do.
