Eggplant Pizette – Ingredients

- dried oregano
Eggplant pizzet recipe how to make
The first step before starting work is to wash the eggplants and wipe them with a paper towel. If you washed the eggplants, wash the tomatoes, drain and sift them.
How to make eggplant instead of pizza dough
Cut the eggplant into round slices 7-8 mm thick. Place the eggplant slices on a flat surface and sprinkle with salt. Let rest for 10-15 minutes. During this time, the salt will penetrate the eggplant rings and help remove them from the liquid. This will reduce the bitterness of the eggplant. Press both sides of the eggplant using an absorbent paper towel.
After preparing the base of the pizette in this way, you can also prepare the ingredients for the toppings. Cut tomatoes into small cubes or round slices. Rinse the basil leaves and tear them finely. We recommend tearing the basil leaves by hand rather than cutting them with a knife to prevent oxidation. Slice or grate the mozzarella cheese as well.
