Pizza is a perfect food. It's there for you when you're sad, when you're happy, and when you're kinda bored. It's there when you're hungry and just want that sweet, sweet taste of bread, cheese, and perfect sauce. It is also endlessly adaptable. You can top your pizza with just about anything you want (even pineapple!) and you can still call it pizza.

Now, you might be thinking — wait — eggplant pizza isn't really pizza, right? I'm not going to argue with you on that point. I have strong feelings about this kind of thing. I will say that it's certainly interesting that the top three pizzas on Pinterest aren't anything you'd consider traditional. I think that speaks to the popularity of low-carb options.
The eggplant pizza — which is similar to a Julia Child's recipe — is pretty straight-forward and easy to figure out. You roast your eggplant; put some sauce, basil, and cheese on top of it; and broil the whole thing. Ta-da! Pizza.
