Prepare a Tooth Friendly Recipe for Lunch or Dinner

If you are wearing braces, then your orthodontist will tell you not to chew on hard pizza crust because it can break your wires or brackets. Fortunately, there is a simple eggplant recipe to make tasty pizza. You need to buy several ingredients to make this delicious healthy pizza. Put these items on your shopping list:

• Olive oil • Parmesan cheese • Eggplant • Tomato sauce • Basil • Fresh spinach • Fresh tomatoes

Eggplant Provides Several Vitamins and Minerals 

Eggplant can provide several nutrients that your body needs to repair your teeth and bones, and the other fresh vegetables and Parmesan cheese offer additional minerals and vitamins. An eggplant has these nutrients:

• Manganese • Vitamin K • Iron • Vitamin B6 • Zinc • Niacin • Folate • Vitamin C

You can make this tooth friendly recipe by washing and peeling an eggplant before slicing it into thin slices. Place the eggplant slices on a baking sheet that is covered in olive oil before baking the eggplant slices for a few minutes in a hot oven. Remove the baking sheet to add tomato sauce along with slices of fresh tomato, spinach leaves, basil and Parmesan cheese. Bake the eggplant pizza again until it is hot.
