Home | Recipes | G

Ingredients:

  • 4 md Japanese eggplants; thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1/4 c Olive oil
  • 3 c Freshly grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Bobolis; (baked cheese pizza crusts) (1-pound)
  • 1 1/2 lb Plum tomatoes; halved, seeded, chopped
  • 6 oz Fresh soft goat cheese; (such as Montrachet), coarsely crumbled
  • 15 lg Garlic cloves; very thinly sliced

Directions:

Preheat broiler. Arrange eggplant slices on large baking sheet. Brush oil over both sides of eggplant. Season with salt and pepper. Broil until eggplant is tender and begins to brown, turning occasionally, about 6 minutes. Cool.
 
Place 2 large baking sheets in oven on separate racks and preheat to 500F. Sprinkle 1 cup mozzarella cheese over each Boboli crust. Top with eggplant slices, chopped tomatoes, goat cheese, garlic slices and fresh basil. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese over pizza. Transfer Bobolis to preheated baking sheets in oven. Bake until cheese melts and pizza edges are brown and crisp, about 12 minutes. Transfer to work surface. Let stand 10 minutes. Cut into wedges. Reassemble on platter and serve.
