What Are Eggplant Pizza Bites?
Eggplant Pizza Bites are similar to my Keto Pizza Bites, but instead of having a doughy pizza crust, they have a slice of eggplant as a base.
It allows the bases to be extremely low in carbs while retaining all the taste and textures of classic pizzas.

How To Make Eggplant Pizza Bites
Everybody loves fun finger food made with vegetables and eggplants are a family-favorite vegetable.
If you love pizza and love eggplants, these delicious eggplant pizza bites will be for you!
All you need to make these delicious eggplant pizza bites are 5 ingredients:
- Eggplant – keep the skin on, it adds fiber and the bites hold better together.
- Tomato Sauce – I used my Keto Pizza Sauce but most low-sugar tomato passata will work.
- Olive Oil – to spread on top of one side before grilling.
- Cheese – I used mozzarella cheese but Parmesan is a great option as well. For a vegan option, you can use vegan ‘cheese’ made of cashews or vegan Parmesan provided it’s low in carbs.
- Toppings: I chose baby spinach leaves and a combo of orange and red cherry tomatoes to keep it keto-friendly. Feel free to add any keto vegetable of your choice on top like olives, diced capsicum, olives, etc.
Making Eggplant Pizza Bites
I used one eggplant in this recipe – which makes 10 slices.
Of course, there are mostly large bites but there are also a few smaller slices from the top of the eggplant that is perfect for a kid’s hands.
Place all the eggplant slices on a baking sheet lined with lightly oiled parchment paper.
Sprinkle some salt on the eggplant and set them aside for 10 minutes or so. This will give the salt some time to absorb as much moisture as possible from the vegetables.
Pre-bake the eggplant slices for 15 minutes at 425°F (220°C).
Take the baking tray out of the oven and flip the eggplant slices before bringing them back to the oven for another few minutes under the grill of the oven.
Add your favorite toppings to the eggplants. For example, I started with my Keto Pizza Sauce, some fresh basil leaves or baby spinach, grated mozzarella, and slices of cherry tomatoes.
Take the pizza eggplant bites back to the oven for 3 to 5 minutes of cooking.
Serving Keto Eggplant Pizza Bites
They hold very well in your hands. It is a very easy appetizer to serve at any time, and the flavor is amazing!
It tastes like pizza, without the crispy crust of course – but also only 1.7 grams of net carbs per bite!
The eggplant base is soft and melts in your mouth. It is not chewy at all. Even if you are not a big fan of eggplant, give this a go! It is divine!
