Quick Weeknight Eggplant Pizzas

We’re not big on “sneaking” more vegetables into kid’s diets but we are all about introducing them to more in creative ways. Be is cauliflower pizza crust, sweet potato toasts, mixing it into a stir-fry or in this case using eggplant as the base of a pizza. Now by no means is this a true crust, but it’s a great way to introduce a less familiar vegetable to your kids in a creative (and easy to prepare) way where they can also pitch in on the fun. Serve with a bagged salad and you’ve got a veggie filled dinner that is sure to please!
