Eggplant cheese is a solid choice for a low carb pizza crust, and no one does it better than Tintorera. I’m happy to say that this pizza adapted so well we decided to name it as our favorite low carb eggplant cheese crust recipe. It’s made with cauliflower instead of potatoes and eggplant instead of cheese, and it’s so easy to make.
It is the end of August and time again for the flavor of the season: eggplant. This savory, sweet, and spicy vegetable tastes great roasted, pickled, and pureed into a creamy sauce. But there are so many different ways to use eggplant that it can be hard to decide exactly how you want to serve it. Should you go traditional and bake it into eggplant Parmesan, or perhaps deviate from the norm and create a pizza made with a thin layer of eggplant spread topped with a savory tomato sauce and melted cheese?
After years of searching for the answer to a simple question, I finally found it. The answer lies in the simplest and most common of ingredients: eggs and cheese. This is the foundation for a low-carb eggplant pizza that you will not believe is low-carb.

Medium (20 m + 1 h)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
Cut the eggplants lengthwise into 13–12 inch (1 cm) thick slices. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and coat both sides with olive oil. Preheat oven to 350°F and bake for 20 minutes, or until gently browned.
In the remaining olive oil, fry the garlic and onion until softened, approximately 3-4 minutes.
Add the meat and heat until it is fully done. Season with salt and pepper after adding the tomato sauce. Allow to boil for 10 minutes, or until well warmed.
Take the eggplant slices out of the oven and cover them with the meat mixture. Cheese and oregano should be sprinkled over top. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
Serve with an olive oil-dressed green salad.
Don’t limit yourself to oregano! This pizza sauce also goes well with fresh basil, Thai basil, or even parsley.
