In the Kitchen: Eggplant and Canadian Bacon Parmesan Pizza
Tonight I wanted to find a new way to fix eggplant. I decided to try pizza. After soaking my sliced eggplant in balsamic vinegar for several hours, I sauteed it in olive oil along with the Canadian bacon. In a separate pan I also sauteed some bell pepper. For Pizza sauce I used crushed tomatoes with Italian spices. I prepared a crust using an inexpensive dried mix. After preparing crust I put in oven at 450 til the crust was firm but not yet browned. I then added the sauce, eggplant, Canadian bacon, bell pepper, and fresh Parmesan cheese. I then returned the pizza to the oven until crust was browned and cheese melted.
