I don’t know about you, but when summer and the hot weather hit us I love a light bite for lunch rather than a full meal. Even better if it’s a picky lunch, with lots of little bits you can nibble, like some bread, and then some smoked salmon, cheese, olives, hummus, some salad leaves and these mini pizzas… all stuff that doesn’t require a lot (or any) prep and it’s still so satisfying. They are literally my favourite lunches!If you are like me or are looking for some simple barbecue or buffet ideas, here is a delicious one for you!

  • 2 Eggplants
  • 1½ cups Passata/Tomato Puree
  • 1½ cups shredded Mozzarella
  • olives
  • dried oregano, salt and olive oil

Wash the eggplants and slice them with a thickness of about half an inch (approx.). Lay them flat on some baking paper.
Score a couple of marks on the surface of each eggplant slice (only lightly, you are not cutting them through).
Drizzle some olive oil on top and sprinkle a little salt.
Bake at 200°C in static mode for around 15 minutes.
In the meantime, prepare the toppings. Put the passata in a small bowl and add some salt and a drizzle of olive oil.
Halven the olives.
Once the eggplants are ready, top with a tbsp of passata (tomato puree), mozzarella and 2 olive halves. Sprinkle some oregano on top.
Put back in the oven again for another few minutes until the mozzarella is melted.Serve hot from the oven. You can also prepare them in advance, just make sure to reheat them in the oven or microwave just before serving.
