My family loves eggplant but unfortunately my picky 5 year old son doesn't. So as I do on the daily researching recipes, I came across eggplant pizza. I decided to try it but I put my own spin on it and found it to not only be tasty but my son loves it too. You see, sometimes you have to use a little creativity and trickery to make some things not so appealing to a child to a favorite. You will love it too!
