Let the dough rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.

Lightly grease a baking sheet.
Arrange the eggplant and onion slices on the baking sheet and sprinkle them with the salt and pepper.
Brush the vegetables with 1 teaspoon of the oil and broil for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown.
Turn, coat the other sides with the remaining teaspoon of oil, and broil 3 minutes more.
