Low carb aubergine ‘pizza’

Pizza is one of my favourite things to eat, so I’m always trying to find healthier alternatives for it.  So far my favourite is tortilla pizzas, but I thought that I would try using roasted aubergine as the base this time. It was super quick to make and is perfect for a starter, or to give to kids!

Ingredients: (makes 16 small slices)

  • 2 small aubergines (each one cut into 8 discs)
  • A pinch of mixed herbs
  • A pinch of garlic granules (optional)
  • 3 tbsp tomato puree, mixed with a little water
  • 1 ball of mozzarella, cut into thin slices

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.
  2. Lay the aubergine slices on a baking tray lined with foil.IMG_8089
  3. Drizzle a few tsp of olive oil over the aubergine and rub into both sides, to stop it from sticking.
  4. Sprinkle over some mixed herbs, garlic granules (if using), salt and pepper.
  5. Roast in the oven for about 20-30 minutes, until soft. Turn the slices over half way.
  6. Once soft, spread the tomato paste over each disc as if spreading over a pizza base.
  7. Top this with the mozzarella.
  8. Return the tray to the oven for another few minutes, until the mozzarella has melted.Processed with VSCO with c1 preset
