Eggplant Pizza

I had made pizza over the weekend using eggplant/brinjal as a topping. This pizza is a recreation of the eggplant pizza I have tasted in one of the restaurants couple years back.

Making Pizza dough
  • Wheat flour- 1 cup
  • All purpose flour- 1cup
  • Yeast- 1tbsp (disslove in warm water)
  • Salt and sugar to taste.

Vegetables and spices

  • Red onion, tomatos - 1 small.
  • Eggplant/brinjal- I used about half of the big eggplant sliced into bit size peices.
  • Salt,Pepper, redchilli,powder and olive oil


  1. Combine the flours and add yeast dissloved in warm water to the flour, add sugar and salt.
  2. Mix well using anough water to form stiff dough. Cover and keep it for 1 hour or untill it doubles it size.
  3. Pre heat the oven 400 F, when dough is ready hand press it to form like circle shape, bake it for 10 mins.
  4. Now add tomato paste or tomato sauce spread it around and add onion, tomato and eggplant(mixed with salt,pepper,olive oil and red chilli powder).
  5. Continue to bake for another 10 min or less untill the veggies are cooked, I added shredded cheese last minute and left it for 1 min.
  6. Eggplant pizza is ready. Enjoy.

* I baked just the pizza dough as such before adding toppings, to make the crust crispier.
