This is an idea that I and my brother loved growing up. I can remember many slumber parties with an English muffin pizza bar. I’ve also done the same thing with my kids. They love putting as much stuff on their muffin as they can. Yeah, sometimes it will make a mess, but nothing that can’t be cleaned up in a few minutes. It’s also fun to see their friends faces light up when they get to create their own mini pizza’s. 🙂
One other thing to think about is the fact that you can make up these muffins bake them slightly to get the cheese melted enough to hold the toppings down and then freeze them. I use a very large and deep, aluminum lasagna pan. Let them cool and place in layers with wax paper between. I wrap the pan in aluminum foil and write the directions on top for reheating. It makes for a really quick snack when the kids get home. Especially on those days I may not be home when they are.
English Muffin Mini Pizzas Recipe For Kids and Adults
By: Shelly Hill
When our daughter was a teenager, she would ask me to make these English Muffin mini pizzas almost on a weekly basis! She absolutely loved eating these. If the toppings we used are not to your liking, feel free to replace them with whatever it is that you like on your pizza.
If you like a little kick to your mini pizza, you can try adding some crushed red pepper or minced garlic to your toppings.
Alternative Pizza Toppings: sliced ham, shredded chicken, beef steak pieces, pineapple chunks, anchovies, red and green peppers or broccoli florets.
English Muffin Mini Pizzas
3 English Muffin halves
4-5 ounces pizza sauce
1/2 of minced onion
2 tablespoons of sliced black olives
9 pieces of sliced pepperoni
4 ounce can of mushroom pieces
1/2 cup of shredded Mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drain water/juice from black olives and mushroom pieces and set aside. Place English Muffin halves cut side up on a baking sheet lined with a nonstick silicone baking mat. If you don’t have a silicone baking mat, line your baking sheet with some aluminum foil. Place baking sheet into the oven for 5 minutes. In a small bowl, combine together the pizza sauce and minced onion. Remove English Muffin halves from the oven and spoon the pizza sauce on top. Gently layer the black olives, pepperoni, mushroom pieces and finally the shredded Mozzarella Cheese on top. Place the baking sheet back into the oven and bake for 10-12 additional minutes or until the cheese is melted, hot and bubbly.
