Yet another great custom pizza created with ingredients I purchased and some leftovers. Once again the neighbors gave us more eggplant. I am a lucky girl! So I decided to make pizzas again since they are so satisfying. This time I made them with capers and prosciutto left over from another recipe. I chopped the eggplants up lazily, but next time I think I will work on presentation and add some sautéed sliced carrots to the top.
For those of you that don’t know what a caper is. Capers are indigenous to Europe and are found most commonly in Italian, French and Greek recipes. They are a bit like olives but have a more enhanced flavor. They are very salty and usually come in a brine wherever you purchase them. Depending on the dish, you can drain them (since the brine is very salty and vinegary) and use them or pour them in a dish to enhance the flavor. I make a mean lemon caper chicken dish which I will make sometime this week and post.
Ingredients: Whole wheat pitas, olive oil, mozzarella and parmesan cheese, eggplant, prosciutto, capers, garlic, onion and basil.
Approximate cost for one pizza/serving: $3.25
