Preheat oven to 425 F.
Dip the eggplant in egg, then breadcrumb and lay on sheet pan evenly. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove sheet pan and lower heat to 350 F. Flip each eggplant over but don't return to oven yet.
Spread a little sauce on each eggplant. Put a tomato slice on top of that. Sprinkle a little salt on top of each tomato. Put a half circle of buffalo mozzarella on top of each tomato. Return to oven at 350 F for 15 minutes.
Once 15 minutes has passed turn the oven to broil on high. Broil for 3 minutes or until cheese is melty and golden brown. Keep a close watch so the cheese doesn't burn.
Remove sheet pan and sprinkle each eggplant with parmesan and add a basil leaf to the top. Enjoy!
