Eggplant slices topped with garlic, pizza sauce and cheese. These simple bites are made with just 6 simple ingredients in under 30 minutes and make the perfect healthy low-carb snack or meal. Small bite sized food are my favorite type of meals to munch on. I’ve posted a low-carb cauliflower crust pizza, a broccoli crust pizza and now it’s time for an eggplant crust pizza. Instead of shredded the cauliflower and broccoli like the other pizzas, this eggplant pizza is much easier to make.
To make the crust, you simply slice up an eggplant into thin slices and that’s it! Top it with olive oil, garlic and italian seasoning and bake until tender and then top with your favorite marinara sauce and cheese. Bake until bubbly and enjoy these healthy eggplant pizza bites for lunch, dinner, or a snack!
