grilled eggplant PIZZA
A Sugo Tu house favourite, grilled eggplant with fresh basil and chilli...understated but so delicious!
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!
1 x Sugo Tu pizza dough disc
100g bocconcini or shredded mozzarella (or try Scamorza for a smokey flavour)
1 small eggplant, 1cm slices
Fresh Basil to garnish
Fresh Chilli optional
Extra virgin olive oil
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 an extra 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, chilli and a generous amount of sea salt.
