Preparation

for 1 servings

Step

1

Of 3

Prepare the eggplant

Peel the eggplants and cut lengthwise into slices that are approximately 1/4" thick.  

Place your grill pan on medium-high heat.  When it's heated and is very hot, sprinkle the pan with sea salt and place the eggplant slices on top. 

As soon as the slices begin to turn darker on top (the color should be dark, almost blackened), turn the eggplant slices over and proceed on the other side. 

Each slice should need about 4 minutes per side.

Spread out the tomato sauce (see the recipe for tomato sauce for pizzas) using a circular motion.

Place a few slices of mozzarella, squeezed from the excess water.  Place between 4-5 eggplant slices on top of the tomato sauce.
