Adapted from closetcooking.com
large eggplant, cut into ¼ inch slices
tablespoon coarse salt
teaspoon Italian seasoning or oregano
salt and pepper to taste
cup pizza sauce
cup mozzarella, shredded
Option: Grill the eggplant instead of baking them.
Note: Eggplant can get bitter with age and salting it helps draw out that bitterness. If you are using younger eggplants you can skip the salting and save some time.
1.Sprinkle the eggplant with the coarse salt, let sit on paper towels for 20 minutes and wipe dry. 2.Brush the eggplant slices with oil and season with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. 3.Roast the eggplant in a preheated 400F oven until it just starts to turn tender, about 15-20 minutes. (Do not let them become too soft or mushy.) 4.Top the eggplant with sauce, cheese and pepperoni and broil until the cheese has melted, about 3-5 minutes.
