If you look at our House Pizzas, you will find that a lot of our pizzas contain eggplant. There’s a reason we have eggplant on our pizzas – we follow kosher law, so we can’t have meat with dairy (cheese) on our pizzas. We find that eggplant is the perfect meat replacement, and it provides a lot more nutrition.

Health Benefits of Eggplants
One of the most notable health benefits of eggplants is that it’s good for your brain. It contains anthocyanin phytonutrient in the skin called nasunin. This antioxidant attacks free radical in the brain that can cause damage. By eating eggplant, you protect your brain from diseases and illnesses.
In addition to eggplant being a brain food, it’s also good for cardiovascular health. It can lower cholesterol because of the nasunin as well as the terpene phytonutrients in the eggplant. In a study with animals with high cholesterol, those that drank eggplant juice ended up lowering their blood cholesterol levels significantly.
