    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

    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

    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

    You have to double the calorie count, etc.. but we REALLY like it when you cut the eggplant (zucchini works just as well) lengthwise to make a pank instead of a round. Also, instead of the sauce use a can of diced tomatoes w/seasoning already mixed in or dice fresh tomatoes with fresh oregano. YUM! - 2/3/10
