I made Baba Ganoush, and felt like having it with some salad and pita – I didn’t have any pita bread at home, so I thought a pizza base would do the trick instead. And did it just ! I served it with my raw coleslaw salad & mayo, and it was irresistible !!! I have just seen this dish described as follows “this sounds like an appetizer, main course and side dish all wrapped into one” – she couldn’t have put it better really as it is exactly like that. Enjoy !

Baba Ganoush on the base
12 mushrooms, sliced
1 onion cut into rings, or 2 spring onions chopped
black olives (as many as take your fancy)
3 tomatoes, sliced medium to thin
a sprinkle of dried oregano
olive oil to drizzle
a little vegan cheese grated (optional – I used very, very little – about ¼ cup)
salt to taste
- Pre-heat your oven to 400ºF (200ºC)
- Having rolled out the dough, place on a well greased oven-proof base, and then spread as much Baba Ganoush as you wish using the back of a spoon. (I had a spoon or so left of some sun dried tomato paste. which I mixed with the baba ganoush, so as not to waste it, but that’s not necessary).
- Next, add your mushrooms, onions and vegan cheese (optional).
- Then layer on your tomatoes, sprinkle with oregano, add the olives and drizzle with oil.
- Place in the oven, until the corners of the crust begin to slightly brown.
- Remove, and cut into portions – serve and enjoy !
