1 pounds Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

2 Grape Tomatoes

1 Head of Garlic Sliced

4 pounds Stems Fresh Oregano

0.5 tablespoons Chopped Oregano

2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

0.5 teaspoons Kosher Salt

0.5 teaspoons Black Pepper

2 pounds Small Japanese Eggplant Thin Sliced

1 tablespoons Kosher Salt

1 teaspoons Olive Oil

0.5 teaspoons Cumin

0.5 teaspoons Garlic Powder

0.5 teaspoons Corlander Ground

0.5 pounds Kalamata Olives Sliced

0.5 pounds Soy Mozzarella Cheese (Vegan) Shredded



Preheat oven to 400*. On a sheet tray, toss tomatoes, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, and oil. Roast for 45 minutes. Set aside to cool. While tomatoes are roasting, place eggplant in a colander and sprinkle salt on top. Let sit in colander in the sink for 30 minutes. Rinse well and pat dry. Heat a grill pan to medium high. In a bowl, toss eggplant, spices, and oil. Grill till golden brown. Set aside. When tomatoes have cooled, remove garlic from their skins and squeeze into a food processor. Add tomatoes (remove any stems). Blend until combined. This is the tomato sauce for the pizza crust. Flour a large surface and roll out pizza dough. Oil a pizza pan and place dough on top. Ladle tomato sauce, layer with eggplant, and sprinkle soy cheese. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until crust is golden. Remove and sprinkle olives, a little sea salt, black pepper, and a dash of good quality olive oil on top before slicing and serving.
