Inspired by classic Margherita pizza, this bread-less pizza has fewer calories than regular pizzas, and it is perfect for any occasion. This recipe is using a store-bought marinara sauce, but you can always substitute it with your made-from-scratch marinara sauce.

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 35 mins
  • Yields: 6 Servings


1 medium globe eggplant, washed and sliced into ½ inch thick

1 tbsp. of olive oil

1 tsp. of dried basil leaves or about 10-12 leaves of fresh basil leaves

4 tbsp. of grated mozzarella

4 tbsp. of grated parmesan (optional)

Pinch of salt, ground black pepper, and red chili flakes for seasoning (optional)

¾ cup of store-bought low sugar marinara sauce


1Preheat the oven to 375F.

2Line a large baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.

3In a single layer, place the eggplant slices on the baking tray.

4Drizzle olive oil on each eggplant slices.

5Roast the eggplant slices in the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until cooked in the center. Remove the roasted eggplants from the oven.
