10-Minute Eggplant Pizza

If you’re mourning the absence of pizza from your healthy diet, you can stop now.

A Healthy Pizza?

Pizza can sometimes be grease-laden and heavy on the carbs. But not this version.

Since refined flour crust is devoid of beneficial nutrients and causes a spike in blood sugar, I created this good-for-you eggplant pizza recipe to replace the flour.

Eggplant makes a great platform for piling on your favorite pizza toppings. Plus, slicing into an eggplant is so much simpler than mixing up a batch of homemade pizza dough.

Simple and healthy? Yep!

Paleo Eggplant Pizza

You can easily make this eggplant pizza vegan (or purely paleo) by going cheese-free or using vegan cheese as a replacement. Peppers and mushrooms are traditional pizza toppers, but you can add any veggies you want to customize your healthy pizza.

You might be surprised just how nutritious this dish is: keep your pizza as is and you’ll be getting plenty of lycopene and vitamin C for both cancer-fighting benefits and glowing skin.

Even kids love these mini pizzas, and you can let them choose their own toppings for a fun pizza night. Any time a pizza craving hits, make these healthy eggplant pizzas instead.

Did You Know?

Eggplants get their beautiful purple color from anthocyanins, which are compounds with anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties. One compound in eggplants has been shown to protect the fats in brain cell membranes, which is a definite bonus!
