Roasted Eggplant Pizza



Ingredients:
Crust
3 cups flour
1 packet yeast
1 tsp salt

Sauce
1-2 lbs tomatoes
4 cloves garlic (minced)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 handful fresh basil and oregano (finely chopped)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 chopped hot pepper (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Topping
8 oz shredded mozarella cheese
1-2 small eggplants
2 tbsp olive oil
salt
oregano (chopped or dried) & brown sugar

Directions:
1. Sift all crust ingredients together. Slowly mix in warm water until it becomes a doughy texture. Let the dough rise in a bowl while you prepare the sauce.
2. Drop the tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds, then transfer them to cold water. Peel and chop tomatoes into small pieces.
3. Heat oil in a large skillet and add minced garlic. Cook for one minute. Add basil and oregano. Add tomato chunks and hot pepper. Stir well and allow to cook on medium heat for 10 minutes.
4. Add brown sugar, salt and pepper and continue to stir. When sauce is thick and tasty, it is ready.
5. Slice eggplants and toss slices with olive oil and salt. Wrap eggplant slices in a piece of foil and cook over a grill or in the oven until tender and brown.
6. Punch dough and knead it on a well-floured surface for 5-10 minutes. Spread dough out on a pizza pan. Cover with sauce (using a slotted spoon ensures the thickest sauce will be on your pizza). Next, cover the sauce with shredded cheese. Finally, place roasted eggplant slices on top and sprinkle with oregano and brown sugar.
7. Bake at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes to an hour (until the crust is baked all the way through).

Think Globally Act Locally – making the case for supporting a CSA farmJanuary 24th, 2017

I’ve seen this as a bumper-sticker mantra for many years and have generally agreed, but hadn’t put much thought behind it.  After a 2016 defined by political drama, intense social dis
