I had a big eggplant from a neighbor's garden and craved pizza, so I found this recipe. I used the whole eggplant. I did not do the salting thing.

It was really good!

I used parchment paper and a pizza stone. Would have been better if I hadn't used fat free mozzarella, but still was good. I also put a few little dots of ricotta on each slice, added dried Italian seasoning and fresh herbs.
