Eggplant Pizza

IMG_8943
Last week, we got an eggplant in our food coop share! The best thing about shares is that you are basically forced to eat/try things you would never try on your own! For instance, an eggplant. I don't like eggplant. But Brandon and I were determined to make something yummy with it. Our go-to meal is homemade pizza so that's what we went with and it was amazingly awesome. Eggplant isn't so bad after all! Here's how we did it: 
Ingredients: 
Monterey Jack 
Olive oil
Eggplant (1/4" slices)
Pizza crust 
Mozzarella 
Black olives 
Spinach 
Clove of garlic (minced)
Goat Cheese 
Red pepper (optional) 
Parmesan (optional)
Instructions:
1. Bake slices of eggplant at 400 degrees F. for 5-10 minutes or until slightly browned. 
2. Drizzle olive oil on crust 
3. Now add a thin layer of monterey jack cheese, the eggplant, some mozzarella, black olives, and last, the garlic. 
4. Follow directions on pizza crust for baking.
5. During the last 2 minutes add the goat cheese and spinach. 
6. Take out and sprinkle with some parmesan and red pepper!
