Prepare Eggplant:

Preheat oven to 200°C. Heat a grill pan on medium heat. Slice eggplant into 1cm slices. Drizzle pan with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and grill eggplant slices until golden on both sides, about 6-8 minutes. Set aside to cool and season with salt and pepper.

Arrange the eggplant pieces over the base, crumble the ricotta over the top. Sprinkle the oregano and chilli flakes (to taste) over the top. Bake pizza for 12-15 minutes or until cheese has melted and the base is crisp.

Dress Rocket:

Add rocket to a bowl and toss lightly with the balsamic dressing.

You Plate It:

Cut the pizza into slices and serve with the rocket side salad (or the rocket on top if you wish).
