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.

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.

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!

Very yummy, I added 1/3 cup of ricotta and an egg to the cheese mix (simply cause I had some I needed to use up) and even leftover it was fab!

My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed this. I had a smaller eggplant which was enough for us but next time I’m getting the larger one for leftovers

Very simple but tasty recipe. I've added gouda cheese to the tomato base and served it the finished dish with garlic bread. I also added onions to the 1st step (butter and garlic base) Overall it was nice and delicious.

Delicious! We added panko bread crumbs on top of some of them before we broiled and it made it even better! We would have used italian bread crumbs if we had them.

it took a lot of time for the amount it produced for a large size of people (5 people). it was very tasty, we added extra cheese which made it very delicious.

Very easy to make, but takes a while. Made it with my daughter. Used reduced fat cheese. Sauce is very flavorful! Eggplant, as always, has a very mild flavor, so Sauce and cheese are the stronger flavors. Will make again.
