Easy English Muffin Pizza Recipe


Looking for a great idea for your child's lunch? Pressed for time during dinner? English muffin pizzas are a great idea. Cheap, fast and kids absolutely love them! You can keep it fresh and interesting by adding new toppings or keep it simple. We'll go over how to make them and some interesting ideas that I've experimented with. Let's get started.
You'll need:
1 English muffin, cut in half as evenly as possible.
Pizza sauce, you can get pizza sauce at your local super market.
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. While your oven is preheating you can sauce and cheese you pizzas. If your muffin isn't already cut in half, go ahead and do so. Try to cut the English muffin in half as evenly as possible to help them cook evenly. Scoop about 1 table spoon of pizza sauce on each half of your English muffin. Using the back of your spoon you can use a circular motion and spread your sauce to the edge of each muffin. You can use more or less sauce depending on personal preference. Next sprinkle just enough of your shredded mozzarella to completely cover the sauce on top of the pizzas. The English muffin pizzas should take about 6-8 minutes at 400 degrees, your looking for your cheese to be fully melted and starting to brown. Use a cookie sheet to make them soft and doughy or right on the oven rack to make them crispy. Let your pizzas cool for a minute or two before serving.
That's literally it! An extremely simple recipe that takes absolutely no culinary skill. If you decide to add toppings to your pizzas, I've found that loading too many toppings can cause your pizzas to cook unevenly and sacrifices quality. With that said here are some ideas I use to keep my pizzas interesting.
  • Spinach, bacon, feta, tomato - Crumble fresh baby spinach leaves, crumble pre cooked bacon, add feta and diced tomato
  • Buffalo chicken- toss pre cooked all white meat chicken breast in your favorite buffalo sauce
  • cheesy blend- mix and match your favorite cheeses( I do a mix of parmesan, romano, provolone and a teaspoon of ricotta right in the middle of the muffin)
You can get just about any topping at your local super market, from peperoni to anchovy, you can never go wrong with this one.
