Why I Love This Recipe

We really enjoyed these unusual pizzettas. Excellent both as an appetizer or a side dish.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 medium sized eggplants
2 mozzarellas (125 g ones)
4 tomatoes (e.g. San Marzano)
a bunch of fresh basil leaves
1 TBspoon pinenuts
1 clove of garlic
Extra virgin olive oil


Turn your oven to 200°C.

Wash, dry and cut the eggplants into 1 cm thick slices.

Brush the slices with a little oil (just a tiny bit, don't soak them, eggplants really are oil drinkers) and grill them for a couple minutes on each side on medium heat, just until they get grilling marks. When they are ready place them directly on a large enough baking tin lined with baking paper.

Cut the mozzarella and the tomatoes into small cubes, and leave the tomatoes in a colander for 10 minutes.

Chop finely the basil leaves, the pinenuts and the garlic (I used a mezzaluna).

Now assemble your little "pizzettas": put a little tomatoes and mozzarella cubes on each eggplant slice, add a little basil and pinenut pesto, drizzle with little EVOO and a bit of salt.

Bake them in the hot oven for 7-8 minutes (I actually let them bake for 10 minutes) and you're good to go.
