English Muffin Pizzas

English Muffin Mini Pizza Recipe: Perfect for Parties - www.sweetlittleonesblog.com


Pizza is always what we crave while watching football or basketball.  And this is the perfect way for every person in the family to get exactly what they want in their own personal pizza.  It's so easy - the kids can help too!

English Muffin Pizzas

Ingredients:

English muffins (we also use tortillas (pictured above) for our son because of a food allergy)
Pizza sauce
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Pizza toppings: pepperoni, onion, peppers, sausage, olives, whatever you like!
Garlic salt
Red pepper flakes
Italian seasoning

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 350 F.

2.  Break English muffins in half lengthwise.  Lay desired number of muffins (outer side down) on a cookie sheet (or on a large piece of foil if you're going to freeze them).

3.  Spread on pizza sauce.  Place desired toppings on each one.

Very carefully and precisely I might add ;)


4.  Sprinkle on cheese and gently press to flatten.  Sprinkle a little of all the spices if desired.

5.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is golden brown.

6.  Serve hot and enjoy!

Notes:  These can also be made into mini frozen pizzas to save for a rainy day.  Complete directions #1-4.  Lay flat on a large piece of foil (enough to be brought over the top of one layer of mini pizzas).  Bring foil up and around pizzas pinching very well at all the seams and making sure pizzas stay flat and in 1 layer.

Label foil with contents and date, or label freezer bag and place wrapped pizzas inside.  Freeze flat on a cookie sheet.  When you're ready to eat them, get them out the night before to completely defrost in the fridge.  Then continue on with #5 above!

I've never taken the pizzas straight out of the freezer and put them in the oven.  If you try it, you will probably have to add more baking time.  And if it works well, let me know!

We always have these English Muffin Pizzas for little "parties", like for football games, the Super Bowl, New Years, March Madness basketball games, or just for a fun winter "picnic" inside the house.  These would be really fun for a kid's birthday too.  Every kid could make their own pizza with the toppings they like.

What a fun, versatile recipe!

P.S.  I found this recipe on Pinterest so long ago that I have no idea where I got it from.  So that's why I don't have a source.  If someone knows the original source, please let me know, and I will absolutely give them credit.




I'm linking up here today!

  6. Oh my gosh I miss english muffins, I so want some now. (no wheat products in the house because hubby can't have it, spelt is ok so I'm going to have to learn how to bake muffins)
