Grilled Eggplant Parmesan Pizza Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Grilled Eggplant Parmesan Pizzas

I love recipes that take classic ingredient combinations and reinvent them in new ways. Exhibit A: this effortless recipe for grilled eggplant parmesan pizzas. The traditional Italian-American dish layers lightly fried eggplant slices with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. This variation lightens things up while making the meal a little more substantial. The eggplant is cooked on the grill and then the three components are turned into a topping for pizza. Instead of pizza dough that has to be tediously rolled out, the recipe employs pita. which results in a super quick and crisp crust. Get the vegetarian recipe now.
