eggplant pizzas on a dish with a bowl of spaghetti and small bowl of parmesan

These mini eggplant pizza bites are my new favorite! They’re grain free, gluten free, and can be made dairy free. They are soo delicious!

No breading, no coating, just simple eggplant slices turned into mini pizzas! I love making meals that are elevated/not so boring while still being nourishing and simple. These eggplant pizzas are just that!

I had a couple eggplants from the farmer’s market just waiting to be used up, plus a major pizza craving. So, these mini grain free pizzas were born!

It was super moody and gloomy today when I made these, and the temperature dropped a bit. These ended up being the perfect little cozy dish that I needed!

The toppings can be customized to what you like and have on hand. I kept these dairy free using a vegan cheese, but you can of course use regular cheese!

I served my mini pizzas with my favorite roasted tomato spaghetti and it was the perfect pair! They’re also great with a simple side salad, and a glass of wine if you’re feeling it! 😉
