Pizza with Eggplant and Goat Cheese

Yes, the eggplant recipes just keep coming! This pizza is pretty simple, but it's really good.

1 medium eggplant (about 1/2-3/4 l), peeled
olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 14-inch pizza crust
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
4 oz. goat cheese

Preheat the broiler.

Slice the eggplant lengthwise into 1/8-inch slices. Spread them out in a single layer on a baking sheet, then paint lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil the eggplant for 3-5 minutes, until tender.

Turn the oven to 450 degrees.

Paint the pizza crust lightly with olive oil, then top with tomato sauce. Spread the eggplant slices over the sauce, then sprinkle with onions. Spread small chunks of goat cheese over the whole thing.

Bake pizza for 15-18 minutes, until crust is done.

Serves 3-4.
