Mini Indian-Seasoned Eggplant Pizzas with Mushrooms

You won't have to cut the crusts off this pizza, as the eggplant base makes it dough-free and fabulous.

Ingredients:
2 ~1/4-in. round eggplant slices
~1 Tbs. tomato paste
2 slices provolone cheese
~1 tsp. garlic powder
~1 tsp. whole cumin seeds
2 whole mushrooms

You'll Also Need:
a toaster oven

Step-by-Step:

1. Take each eggplant round and cross-hatch it. Rub in about 1/2 tsp. garlic powder into each round.
2. Place the seasoned eggplant on the toaster oven tray, preferably on top of a wire rack so the heat can get all around. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes.
3. Spread about 1/2 Tbs. tomato paste over each baked eggplant round.
4. Sprinkle the cumin seeds on top.
5. Top with a slice of provolone each.
6. Tear up the mushrooms and place the pieces on top of the cheese. Bake for about 7 more minutes.

Makes 2 mini-eggplant pizzas.

The AHH Factor: I have my share of vices when it comes to eating healthy. Fried chicken from KFC, even though I usually feel sick to my stomach after I eat it. Custard-y desserts, especially if they are lying around the house. Cheese is my Achilles' heel.

But I do have a lot of things going for me that help me maintain a healthy weight. I love almost all vegetables (eggplant is one of my all-time favorites). I go from ravenous to full in about five bites. And I hate almost all carbs.

Bread? Only if covered with the aforementioned cheese (even then I will probably find a way to separate the cheese from the bread). Potatoes? Only if they are sweet potatoes, thank you very much. Rice? I'm burnt out after eating in every day as a kid. I don't even really like pie crust. I'd much rather just have the filling.

So, like most people, I love a good pizza (or even a bad pizza), but I like everything about it except for the crust. So with this recipe, I've found a way to eliminate it entirely. Try it with all of your favorite pizza toppings. If you love eggplant like I do, you will find this the easiest and tastiest pizza "dough" around.
