Since the cheese slice from Rosario's Pizza already received Kenji's Corner Slice stamp of approval, I went to see how one of their special slices would measure up. And this one was notably great: paper thin, flash-fried slices of eggplant top a very solid pizza base. The edges of the eggplant are lightly crisped while the centers, with a spot of sauce and a dusting of Parmesan, are super flavorul and not too mushy (the soggy factor was a definite concern when I ordered this slice). The crust is firm, but not dense, with a nice crunch. The trifecta bite with sauce, cheese, and eggplant was reminiscent of every delicious eggplant Parmesan I've had. And there's nothing wrong with that!
