Eggplant za'atar pizza
I'm experimenting with this Middle Eastern spice, Za'atar. It seems to fit well with eggplant and breads, so I turned it into a flatbread with fresh tomatoes.
1 portion pizza dough
1 tbsp olive oil
2-3 tbsp za'atar
1.5 cup diced eggplant
0.5 tsp pepper flakes
small pinch of cinnamon
2 cloves garlic
10 cherry tomatoes + some to serve
2 tbsp grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 400F. Cook diced eggplant in a small amount of oil with the crushed garlic, pepper flakes, diced cherry tomatoes, cinnamon and salt. Cook until slightly browned.
Stretch out flatbread and brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with za'atar. Top with eggplant mix. Top with shredded Parmesan.
Bake in the preheated oven until crust is light brown. Serve with fresh tomatoes on the side.
