Quick Mini Pizzas

I love the smell of freshly-baked pizza dough, but sometimes I just don't have the time or energy for it. (Although, a yummy, healthy pizza dough recipe will be posted soon!) This recipe is a favorite of my kiddos and it is something that they can help make along with me. I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does.


Package of English Muffins

Shredded Cheese

(We like the Colby-jack cheese, but mozzarella or any of you favorite cheese will do.)

Any topping of your choice

(We are a boring family, so we usually just use ham or sausage)

1-batch of pizza sauce (recipe below)

1, 8oz. can tomato sauce

1/2 tsp. italian seasoning

1 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. sugar

1/4 tsp. salt

dash of pepper

*Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.*


Cut english muffins in half using a butter knife. Mix up pizza sauce in a small bowl. Place english muffins on a cookie sheet. Turn oven to "broil." Place english muffins inside oven for 2-4 minutes. WATCH CLOSE! Carefully remove from oven and let cool enough to handle.

Once muffins are cool enough to touch, spoon pizza sauce over top of english muffins.

Add any toppings and sprinkle cheese on top.

Cover all of the english muffins with toppings. Place in a 375 degree oven for 8-12 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Carefully remove from oven. Enjoy!

*Disclaimer: do not allow children to place/remove items from the oven. This can result in serious burns. Allow english muffins to cool entirely before letting children add toppings and cheese. The pizzas will be very hot when removed from the oven, so be cautious when serving to small children.
