Eggplant “Pizza!”

Eggplant “Pizza!”

Hi Sisters! WOW! It feels good to be back on ibssisters.com! Sorry I have been MIA for a bit, I was having a few issues logging into my site and then I have been super busy launching Box Full of Spoons, the 1st ever Spoonie/Chronic Illness Girl’s Health & Beauty Subscription Box! I am so excited about BFOS, and I hope that my IBS Sisters get a chance to treat themselves to a box when we launch! πŸ™‚ In case you missed it, you can sign up for the updates here:Β box-full-of-spoons.launchrock.com

Tonight, I made eggplant pizza! If you’re anything like me, IBS Sister, you MISS PIZZA! You NEED pizza! Pizza is beautiful.

Peep the EGGPLANT CRUST! πŸ˜€

The eggplant pizza ended up being low-fodmap, low-carb, dairy free, soy-free and gluten free, but it wasn’t easy to get it this way! At the grocery store, I spent about 15 minutes looking at all the pizza and spaghetti sauces, and they ALL contained at least onions or garlic, or the powder form of these two fodmap offenders. So I decided to make my own low-fodmap pizza sauce for my eggplant pizza.

I started with a 12 ounce can of tomato paste and 2 cups of free range chicken broth (you can use water if you want a vegan recipe), and heated on the stove on medium heat in a sauce pan.

I then added 1/2 tablespoon of himalayan sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of oregano. And stirred! It started to boil, so I dropped the heat to low and let it simmer while I continued cooking the rest of the “pizza!”

I cut the eggplant in circles about an inch or so thick.

I added 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to the pan and grilled the eggplant “pizza crust” on medium-high heat.

I cookedΒ the eggplant for about 4 minutes on each side. You can do less or more time depending on how crispy you like your pizza crust πŸ™‚ I moved it around in the pan ever so often to distribute the heat evenly between each piece of eggplant.

I then put the eggplant pizza crust on a piece of aluminum foil on a cookie sheet.

I spooned the low-fodmap pizza sauce on each eggplant pizza crust. You can add as much or as little sauce that you desire. I had a lot of pizza sauce left over that I will either freeze or repurpose for another recipe tomorrow πŸ™‚ It is really tasty!

I then added shredded Daiya dairy-free mozzarella cheese. I just sprinkled it right on top, and broiled in the oven until slightly melted and browned.

Straight out of the oven! Mmmmm… smells delicious!

Dinner is served! You could also put any toppings that you like on top! I prefer cheese pizza πŸ™‚ But sometimes I like veggie pizza, so I may try spinach, olives, and green peppers on top next time!

I hope you enjoy pizza night! πŸ™‚ If you give these a try, tag me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and let me know what you think! I think they are DELICIOUS! πŸ™‚

XOXO, IBS Sister
