Method

Bake the aubergines

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F. Prepare one or more baking sheets and spray them evenly with a vegetable oil spray.
  2. Prepare 2 wide, shallow dishes for the egg and coating mixture: beat the egg(s) with the water in one, put the bread crumbs in the other.
  3. Prepare the aubergines :Slice them crosswise into 1 cm thick slices. Working with one slice at the time, dip it in the egg mixture, let the excess egg drip off, then coat it with the bread crumbs. Turn the slices to coat both sides. Place the slices on the baking sheet(s), season with salt, then bake until the aubergines are golden-brown on the bottom, 15-20 min. Turn the slices and continue baking an additional 15-20 min until browned on the other side. Remove the aubergines from the oven and raise the temperature to 'broil'.

Bake the pizzas

  1. Distribute the tomatoes, Parsley and Garlic Base, and bocconcini on top of the aubergine slices. Put the baking sheet back into the oven at about 10 cm from the grill. Cook until the cheese is melted, about 3 min. Serve immediately.
