Eggplant Pizza

My two pizzas served with Kale Chips (Fresh Kale sprayed with olive oil and baked with the pizzas). On the right – smokey BBQ sauce, bacon, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and cheddar. On the left – sweet chilli base, prawns, onion, capsicum, zucchini, coriander, mozzarella.

Pizza Topping Ideas:

  • Margarita – Garlic (best crushed and stirred into the tomato paste), fresh basil, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella.
  • BBQ Chicken – use BBQ sauce instead of tomato sauce, shredded chicken, red onion, mushroom, bacon, cheese.
  • Antipasto – salami, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, capsicum, caramelised onion, artichokes.
  • Meat lovers – do I need to explain?
  • 3 cheeses (pick your 3 favourite cheeses)
  • Potato, leek & cheese.
  • Pesto chicken – use a pesto as the base sauce, chicken, cherry tomatoes, grilled zucchini.
  • Thai Style – mix sweet-chilli sauce into the tomato sauce base, top with prawns, capsicum, bok-choy, coriander.
  • Chicken Satay – use satay sauce and cashews
  • Mexican Style
  • Tandoori Style

You get the picture, have fun with it!
