- 2 Eggplants Sliced into 1-in coins
- 8-12 oz Pizza Sauce (you will likely have left overs)

- Olive Oil Spray
- Salt and Pepper
- Italian Seasoning
- Optional Toppings: Prosciutto, Basil, Pepperoni, Black Olives, Sausage
Place Eggplants down onto paper towel and sprinkle with salt, allow to sit for 15-30 minutes to draw out the moisture. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. After you have let them sit use a paper towel to soak up excess moisture that has been drawn out.
Brush oil, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to the top of each cut eggplant. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes, and then remove. Spread pizza Sauce over the top, any topping you would like, and finally top with mozzarella and Parmesan. Return to oven for another 5-8 minutes, until cheese is melty and possibly golden. Remove and enjoy!
