We eat this Supreme Pizza Eggplant for both lunch and dinner. When I don’t have time to make a Fat Heat dough for pizza, this is the go-to recipe. It’s quick and easy and completely satisfies the craving for pizza.
What Ingredients to Use
Supreme Pizza became popular thanks to Pizza Hut, back in the 70s. They created a loaded pizza that became a huge hit. It includes pepperoni, seasoned pork, beef, mushrooms, green bell peppers and red onions.
I just found out that it also includes chicken in the UK. Who knew?
While these ingredients are the typical toppings for this type of pizza, you can definitely mix and match, or introduce different toppings you like more.
Our version uses pork sausage, green bell peppers, onions, pepperoni, plus the obligatory mozzarella cheese and low-carb pizza sauce.
How to Make Supreme Pizza Eggplants
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 C).
There are 2 slices in a serving for this recipe, and it makes 4 servings. So you’ll need to start with an eggplant that’s big enough to cut 8 cross-section slices that are about 1/4″ thick (a little less than 1 cm). I don’t peel the eggplant first. The peel gives it some texture.
Sprinkle salt on the slices and let them sit for 5 minutes. This will draw some of the extra water out of the eggplant, so they aren’t watery when they cook. Then pat them dry with a paper towel to remove the beads of water and excess salt.
Meanwhile, brown the sausage and mushroom in a skillet over medium-high heat. Break the sausage up into small pieces as it cooks.
When it’s almost cooked through, add the onion, bell pepper, salt and pepper to the pan. Cook for just 2 minutes more and remove from the heat.
Spread the pizza sauce onto the eggplant slices. Top with equal amounts of the sausage mixture and mozzarella cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly on top.
Is Eggplant a Low-Carb Food?
Yes, eggplant is a low-carb food that is fine to eat on a low-carb or keto diet. It’s also high in fiber and has many beneficial nutrients.
Two slices of eggplant has about 3 net grams of carbs.
One thing to note is that eggplant is a nightshade vegetable. If you have a sensitivity to them, you should avoid eating it.
If you want to avoid eggplant, you can substitute with sliced cauliflower, zucchini, portobello mushrooms, or just make our Supreme Pizza Casserole that doesn’t have a base.
