Pizza healthified: Aubergine Pizza Piccolini

Diet often is all about cheating. Cheating your mind into thinking you're eating something desirably unhealthy while eating very healthy instead. That's why I'm gonna prestent to you today: Aubergine Pizza Piccolini.

For this recipie you will need:
  • 1 Aubergine
  • Smoked Ham
  • Garlic
  • Leek
  • Zucchini
  • Mushrooms
  • Canned chopped tomato
  • Balsamic Cream
  • Parmesan
  • Flax Seeds

Of course the goal is to top the Piccolini with the pizza tipping you like. So if you prefer spinach or salami or tuna, go ahead and use that :)

Start with cutting your Mini Pizza Crusts. I cut reasonably sized slices of aubergine, cutting that thin end-part sideways.

Season the aubergine before putting in into the oven at 150° C. It will stay in there until your topping is done.

Now for the sauce. Of course you cold really make it pizza-like with putting the topping onto the sauce. But I don't want to use a second pot so I will mix the topping with the sauce.
I LOVE diced smoked ham. You can use the exact amount you want - plus it gives you a tiny bit of fat to fry your vegetables in.

Speaking of vegetables: Cut them into chunks to your liking.

Add the garlic into the pan first and soften it ...

... before adding the rest of the vegetables.

Cook untill they are nice and soft as well.

Now add the tomato sauce ...

And cook untill it's pretty much reduced to a gorgeous sauce. Season to taste.

Usually I have a piece of parmesan and use the grater. Today we're using pre-sliced Parmesan though, so I had to cut it very small in order to sprinkle the Piccolini.

Once the sauce is done set it aside to cool a bit and check your Mini Crusts. They should be done as well.

Now it's time to build the Pizzas. Top off the crusts ...

... add the cheese and maybe some balsamic cream underneath ...

... and put it back into the oven until the cheese has molten.


If you're using Weight Watchers: All of these Aubergine Pizza Piccolini I made had only about 5 ProPoints.

Take care and be sexy,
