This is the ultimate Italian-style comfort meal, perfect paired with a glass of red wine. ​You can mix up the recipe by using a Scamorza (smoked mozzarella) and add chilli for an extra kick.

You won't even know it's meat free it's so satisfying.

Some tips before you get started: 

  • Watch our dough prep video here 

  • Flour your dough generously

  • Before topping, place your stretched dough onto a  piece of baking paper that way you can easily slide it onto a baking tray or pizza stone

  • No one likes a soggy pizza - less is more when it comes to toppings!

Ingredients:

  • 1 x Sugo Tu pizza dough disc

  • 75g Sugo tu Pizza Sauce

  • 100g bocconcini or shredded mozzarella (or try Scamorza for a smokey flavour)

  • 1 small eggplant, 1cm slices and grilled

  • Sea salt

  • Fresh Basil to garnish

  • Fresh Rocket to garnish

  • Parmesan Cheese grated for garnish

  • Fresh Chilli optional

  • Extra virgin olive oil

Method:

Pre-heat the oven to 250 deg Celsius. Thaw dough according to pack instructions. Place sliced eggplant onto a well oiled baking tray, drizzle with a generous glug of oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake until golden.

Stretch the dough to about 11" and place on a piece of baking paper.

 

Top with sauce, cheese and eggplant. 

Bake for 5-8 minutes or until the crust is blistery and golden brown.

After baking sprinkle with fresh basil, rocket, chilli, parmesan cheese and a generous amount of sea salt.
