How To Make grilled and baked aubergine ‘pizza’

  • 1
    First you need to brush each side of the aubergines with olive oil and then grill them over a medium heat until they have just started to char but are still firm. You don’t want to over cook them at this stage. You can also do this on a griddle pan in your kitchen.

    Once they are grilled set them aside on a baking tray and start adding the layers of topping, starting with a thin layer of tomato sauce, then add the cheeses and the other toppings. Bake for about 8 – 10 minutes at 180C and until the cheese starts bubbling.

    Move to oven mode and set the temperature to 180 C. Place the aubergine slices on a round pizza baking pan and bake for around 10 – 15 minutes until the cheese and sauces is bubbling and turning brown.
