    the sauce was not as meaty and delicious as it looks and the eggplant was too thick. weird texture I guess

    i added sausage to the tomatoes sauce, other than that followed the recipe exactly. it was very good, even my husband who said he didnt want to try it, liked it.

    Fantastic grilled the dish too hot to crank up the oven. I did not have salad so I grilled some bok choy. And had some hummus great combination.. I used a copper grill mat

    It was good, but next time will add a green salad, it was barely enough for dinner for two.

    A+. The salting makes the eggplant less bitter. I did some with nozerrela and some with just a little Parmesan sprinkled on. Also used canned pasta sauce to speed up prep.

    Turned out really delicious. I’m trying to get my husband to eat less meat so I made these for dinner. We both really loved them.

    It's a tasty alternative but not quite actual pizza. I will probably only make occasionally as it fairly time consuming.

    Couldn’t taste the eggplant

    It turned out great for the most part It just needs a tiny tweak for my family's taste buds. We'll be trying it again. ;)

    Pretty good. Never been a huge fan of eggplant but this tasted like pizza. I did use the marinara sauce generously though

    Great. Though at the last! We found we didn't have the eggplant we thought we had. So improvised with sliced kumera and that worked out fine,

    i made my own pizza sauce and added spinach and jalapenos with a sprinkle of feta cheese. it tasted much better than i thought it would. i recommend cutting the skin off after baking the eggplant.

    I use baked eggplant blended with tahini to spread on wholemeal bread. It’s easy.

    Very good. I didn’t measure everything exact to the recipe, but it’s pretty flexible. Definitely worth repeating.

    loved these! I didn't coat them with salt, as I didn't want high salt content. just cut them, put ingredients on them. SO good!

    It was absolutely easy to make and delicious! I fried up some sausage and added to the sauce, gave it a nice flavor!
