    Sounds fantastic! Can't wait to try it! Here's a tip about Eggplant: After you slice it, lay the slices on paper towels and salt it lightly. After a few minutes, blot both sides well with additional paper towels. It makes them "sweat" out the bitterness and then they taste yummy sweet !!! : ) - 4/25/09

    instead of sauce I use slice of tomato. Also i add grated parmesan chees on top. I eat the whole eggplant since no one else likes eggplant. It has protein from cheese and veg..sometimes I make garlic toast to go with it. Also befor oiling eggplant, I season oil with Italian seasoning... yummy!! - 12/3/08

    Love the idea but can't bring myself to using eggplant, so I cut zuccini the long way and used them instead. Excellent way to get a pizza fix at lower calories. Thanks! - 8/2/08

    My husband and I both loved it! I only peeled away strips of the peeling so that the eggplant would keep its shape. I cut 2" slices, heavily sprayed each slice with cooking spray to save calories, and followed the other directions as written. Easy and tasty! Will do again many times - 3/3/09

    Very good! I love loading it with any and all veggies I had on hand, which this time included onion, peppers, and tomatoes (subbed in for tomato sauce/paste). I used goat cheese - yum! Thanks for sharing. - 2/28/09

    I skipped the olive oil, used Pam spray, and added 1/2 of a turkey dog, cut into small "coins" to substitute as pepperoni. YUM! - 8/2/08

    I just finished making these, and just took a bite. Eating them right now. And I wanted to say THANK YOU! What an absolutely delicious recipe. I never eat eggplant but now it gives me good reason too! I added red peppers, garlic, spinach and tinned chopped tomatoes instead of pizza sauce. - 7/13/09

    I was pretty surprised by this one. I added some red pepper to the eggplant before I baked it, and for a little kick I put jalepenos on it. Definitely something I'll try again. Maybe without so much pepper. C'est chaud! - 11/25/08

    I have made this for 40 plus years. My three children LOVED this recipie. I dipped the eggplant in beaten egg and then in breadcrumbs (sometimes Italian seasoned BC.),and then put on the sauce and cheese and sometomes with pepperoni added. The kids really liked the pepperoni eggplant pizza! - 6/30/09

    what's with the stars? i give 5. thanks. reminds me of eggplant parmegian. i think i'll add mushrooms as a topping. comments on comments:spraying with lots of oil is the same calorie count as using oil. thanks for the tip, wen. - 5/13/09

    hi, i sliced my eggplant the long way to make the "pizzas" look like french bread pizza. i never salt and drain eggplant, it tastes fine to me. i used jarred pizza sauce and added garlic powder. To make it Hawaiian, i added cubes of ham and pineapple-much more flavor that way. give it a try - 7/11/10
