  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1-2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, optional

  • <b>seasonings</b>
  • dried oregano to taste
  • red crushed pepper flakes to taste

Instructions
 

  • Here are the veggies you will need to roast. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Slice eggplant.
  • Brush both sides of the eggplant with olive oil - you will need 3 tbsp olive oil for the eggplant alone.
  • Slice onions. Add 1/2 tbsp olive oil. Toss.
  • Slice red and green bell pepper. Add 1 tbsp olive oil. Toss.
  • Slice cherry tomatoes. Add 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, salt and black pepper. Toss.
  • Place all the roasted veggies on a tray lined with foil (if you'd like). This makes cleanup easier.
  • Into the oven for 35 minutes, flip eggplant half way through and toss the veggies.
  • While the veggies roast, make the pesto. Add all the pesto ingredients to a food processor.
  • Pesto is done. Set aside.
  • Once the veggies are done, turn off the oven, BUT LEAVE THE VEGGIES IN THE OVEN FOR 30 MINUTES. This will help them soften.
  • Once the veggies are done, this is what you'll have.
  • Take a whole wheat lavash flatbread and top with a dollop of pesto.
  • Top with all the roasted veggies and chopped fresh spinach.
  • Now add mozzarella cheese and Parmesan is optional.
  • Preheat a toaster oven to 400 degrees. Into a toaster oven for 3 minutes. The pizza will start to harden so watch this closely. Literally, bake this for 3 minutes.
  • It's perfect. Cut into 4 squares and sprinkle oregano and crushed red pepper flakes. It's so filling!
