Eggplant Parmesan Pizza

Wednesday, July 17, 2019
Eggplant Parmesan Pizza is a great idea to satisfy eggplant parmesan and pizza lovers at the same time.

This pizza is very much like an open-faced sandwich of that favorite Italian vegetable casserole dish.

You may have had Eggplant rollatini, Eggplant Parmesan Casserole or even tried the famous Eggplant Sinatra Florentine recipes which are all fabulous by the way, so do try them if you love eggplant!

When mom would make fried eggplant, I always hoped there were leftovers for another meal and this would be my favorite, topping pizza with it.

Anyone that's ever ordered a hot baked submarine sandwich slathered with melted mozzarella cheese will appreciate this style pizza!

Scroll down to the recipe card and print off the quick recipe for this homemade delicious gourmet-style pizza!

Pizza Gourmet Style

There are plenty of Resturants out there that considered this a gourmet-style pizza and will charge a considerable amount of money for an extra topping like this one.

This pizza is so easy to make and just think about making extra eggplant for another meal

You could make a larger eggplant, fry it and make it into Eggplant Parmesan casserole, freeze it for another meal!

We usually do make this pizza with leftover eggplant parmesan but love it so much, I have made the eggplant just for this pizza recipe!

Another favorite believe it or not is Chicken Parmesan leftover on top of pizza, just do this the same way, just add a little less
sauce on top since it's already loaded with the tomato sauce.

Eggplant Parmesan Pizza

prep time: 35 Mcook time: 31 Mtotal time: 66 M
A gourmet-style pizza topped with favorite fried eggplant parmesan and loads of melted cheese.


  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • 1 small eggplant cut in thick  slices soaked in salt, draining on paper towels, then rinsed
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 - 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour seasoned
  • Seasoning:
  • 1 teaspoon each: dried basil, oregano, salt, pepper, granulated garlic powder and more for garnishing
  • 1 large plastic bag to shake the eggplant in
  • canola oil for frying
  • olive oil
  • 2 cups or more of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan Romano blended cheese
  • red pepper flakes


How to cook Eggplant Parmesan Pizza

  1. Place drained and rinsed eggplant in a bowl of milk.
  2. Stretch the dough out on a greased pizza pan and set aside. Let rise to 1 inch thick around 30 minutes in a warm place.
  3. In the meantime, place flour and seasoning in a plastic bag, 
  4. Heat 1 inch of oil in a frying pan.
  5. Shake the eggplant slices in the bag.
  6. Fry on medium heat until golden on each side drain on paper towels.
  7. Spread some crushed tomatoes on the dough, add the eggplant more sauce on each one,
  8. Top with shredded mozzarella and sprinkle the whole top with grated cheese.
  9. Drizzle lightly with olive oil.
  10. I like to now sprinkle more granulated garlic, basil, and oregano evenly over the top.
  11. Bake at 400 degrees until the cheese is melted and the crusted is browned around 25 to 35 minutes.
  12. Add red pepper flakes if desired.


You will not use all the sauce, make a larger amount of eggplant and use the extra to make a layered dish of eggplant sauce and cheese.

Also, you can use canned pizza sauce and not crushed tomatoes.
