Ingredients

  • 1 chinese eggplant sliced in to 1/8 inch rounds
  • Olive Oil as needed to drizzle on eggplant slices
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 2 8 or 9 inch pre-made pizza crusts or make your own favorite pizza crust recipe
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce or your favorite marinara
  • 8 ounces Cabot 50 % reduced fat cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 bell pepper {red or orange or a combination of the two}, sliced in to 1/8 inch rounds
  • 1 tablespoon each fresh thyme oregano, and basil, finely chopped
  • Crushed red pepper optional, to taste

Instructions

  • Turn broiler on. Slice eggplant and place on a tin foil lined baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil on top of eggplant slices, and sprinkle with sea salt. Place baking sheet in oven, and broil for 3 minutes. Remove pan from oven, and carefully turn over eggplant slices. Return to oven and broil for 3 more minutes.
  • While eggplant is broiling, slice bell peppers and set aside. Next spread 1/4 cup tomato or marinara over each pizza crust, then top each crust with 4 ounces of the shredded Cabot cheddar cheese.
  • Remove eggplant from the oven, and turn heat to 400 degrees. Top each pizza with half of the eggplant rounds, then do the same with the sliced bell peppers. Place pizza crusts on a parchment lined baking tray, or for crispier crusts, place directly on oven rack. Bake for 81-2 minutes, or until cheese is melted and desired crispiness of crust is achieved.
  • Remove pizza from oven, and it cool a little. Top with fresh herbs and crushed red pepper if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

I used Udi's gluten-free pre made pizza crust, but you can use any favorite gluten-free {or regular} crust. Follow manufacturers directions or recipe for oven temperature and cooking time.
For a low FODMAP version, use plain tomato sauce or a garlic & onion free tomato sauce like Rao's Sensitive formula.
