What dish can surprise him? Is it possible at all? Do you think these questions were about my beloved? No, you haven’t guessed. I asked myself about my Italian friend, who works at a restaurant, who travels around the world and he was going to visit me. I could cook some dish of our national cuisine, but it was too predictable. What if I surprised him with Italian dish? It sounded funny. I had to invent something, but was short in time. The best idea that came to my mind – surf the internet.It didn’t take me much time and it worked. I happened to see an interesting recipe on this amazing blog – Eggplant Pizza.
The name is Italian and funny at the same time. When I read the list of ingredients, I understood, that it would be an extremely refined and fragrant dish. I just imagined eggplant slices with cherry tomatoes and slices of provolone on and I understood – these are colors of Italian flag! I cooked this pizza just some minutes before my friend’s arrival and I thought I would it myself. So attractive it looked! What about my friend? He was lucky – I hadn’t eaten a piece of course. What was his impression? He was so happy – eggplant is his favorite vegetable! Lucky I am. Sitting at the table he closed his eyes, chewing a piece and said “wow”. He appreciated my eggplant pizza. I don’t know whether he was joking, but he said he would cook pizza by this recipe at his restaurant!
If my friend is going to cook eggplant pizza at a restaurant, why don’t you cook it at home? Here is the recipe.
