Everyone loves pizza, especially kids. But people on a diet try to avoid it, as it might pile on the kilos.
Yet it can be part of a balanced diet, as long as it’s not buried under high-calorie toppings.
And you can also rustle up some amazing as well as delicious variations. For example, try replacing the pie crust with a breaded and crisp slice of eggplant!!!
This way, you’ll kill two birds with one stone: Not only will you dramatically cut down on calories, you’ll also make your children eat vegetables without their noticing 😉 And the result is worthy of a good chef at any fancy restaurant.
For best results, choose large, preferably round and fleshy eggplants with smooth shiny skin. And tell me how it turns out…
