Quick Aubergine “Pizza” Slices

Quick Aubergine "Pizza" Slices

Cooking low carb can be time consuming. Sometimes when the hunger-monkeys are knocking on the door, something cheesy, delicious and super fast to make is the only answer.

When browsing through the supermarket shelves, as I do, for fun 😉 I found this awesome product by Granoro – a Napoletana sauce made with all natural ingredients, and it’s yummy too! If you don’t have this on hand, you can make a quick tomato sauce using good quality tinned tomatoes.

Quick Aubergine “Pizza” Slices (makes 5 – 8 slices)
