Ingredients

  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups seasoned panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 garlic naan bread
  • 1 cup marinara sauce We like to mix good quality pizza sauce with a Sciciliana tomato sauce
  • 6 oz fresh mozzarella thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped basil
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Optional
  • Chili flakes
  • Honey

Instructions

  • 1. Slice eggplant into ¼ inch rounds. Lay on a paper towel then sprinkle with salt and let sit for about 20 minutes to release the moisture
  • 2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with foil and spray with cooking spray
  • 3. Set up 3 shallow dishes for dredging. First dish stir together flour, salt and pepper. Second dish whisk eggs and third dish stir together panko breadcrumbs with garlic powder
  • 4. Working one eggplant slice at a time, dredge eggplant in flour then dip in egg mixture and then coat with breadcrumbs. Place onto your baking sheet in an even layer, repeat with remaining slices and sprinkle with a light coating of parmesan cheese
  • 5. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes turning halfway, remove and let cool 2 minutes
  • 6. Keep oven on at 400. Place naan breads on a baking sheet then spoon your pizza sauce onto the naan bread, spreading it to the edges in a circular motion, season with Italian seasoning
  • 7. Place eggplant slices (we did 3 per naan) then place your thinly sliced mozzarella onto the pizza. Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese -as much as you like
  • 8. Bake the naan for 10-15 minutes depending on how crispy you like your crust. The naan should be golden brown underneath and have crisp edges. To finish the pizza we like to broil for 1 minutes to get the mozzarella nice and golden.
  • 9. Remove from the oven, garnish with a bit more freshly grated parmesan cheese, optional to sprinkle with chili flakes and drizzle honey over your pizza. To finish sprinkle with a
    generous amount of fresh chopped basil
  • 10. Serve right away
