Tips and variations

This is the basic version of the eggplant pizzas, but if you want you can also enrich them with other ingredients: a slice of ham, a few olives, some anchovies in oil… to put just before the mozzarella.
Instead of fresh tomatoes you can use a little tomato puree seasoned with a pinch of salt and a drizzle of oil.
