Roasted Eggplant and Hummus Pizza

This recipe came from Kimberly Alexandra over at Poor Girl Eats Well. And, ohhh man is it good. This is the second recipe I've tried from her site, and they were both full of win.

I took a few liberties and used whole wheat pizza dough instead of tortillas, and I added cherry tomatoes. I believe it would be good either way!

Roasted Eggplant and Hummus Pizza (Originally from Poor Girl Eats Well, but with a few modifications)
Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
2-3 Tablespoons hummus
1/4 onion
1 Tablespoon butter or veggie oil
1 pinch brown sugar
1/2 of an eggplant, thinly sliced and cut into wedges
4 mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup cherry tomatoes
Olive Oil

Roll out the pizza dough and bake until golden brown. Meanwhile, caramelize the onions in a frying pan with a little veggie oil or butter. During the last minute of cooking, add the brown sugar.

Top the pizza crust with hummus, eggplant, mushrooms, caramelized onion, feta cheese, and cherry tomatoes. Place in the broiler until toppings begin to char (or your crust starts to get too dark, whichever happens first). Drizzle with olive oil, and enjoy!

Thank you! It has been one of my favorite meals lately! To mix things up I sometimes use naan instead of pizza dough. :)
