Pizza is one of those dishes that some people will never tire of. Unfortunately, pizza isn't the healthiest of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you're a pizza addict, try this tasty eggplant pizza and add your favorite toppings to give it a little flair. This could even end up being your new favorite pizza dish.
