These English Muffin Pizzas come together in no time!
One of my favorite foods to play around with when it comes to creating new recipes is the all-inclusive English Muffin. I have made so many awesome recipes using them. Since we had a few left over from the last time I bought some, I decided to create these quick and easy English Muffin Pizzas recipe for you!
How to Make English Muffin Pizzas
All you need to make these delicious English Muffin Pizzas are —
- English Muffins
- My Homemade Pizza Sauce recipe (or store-bought is fine too)
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Parmesan Cheese
How to Keep Your English Muffins From Getting Soggy
So — I have a trick that will keep your English Muffin Pizzas from being soggy — and that is toast them before you do anything else!
If you toast them and get it good and brown, it makes the bottoms just like a pizza crust. This way when you slather on the pizza sauce, it won't soak through the English Muffin.
Once you toast them under the broiler, remove them from the oven and top with the pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and your favorite meat topping — for us, we use pepperoni.
Put them in a 400-degree oven and bake for about 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and the pepperonis are crispy around the edges.
Let's face it — no one likes a soggy pepperoni, am I right??
Now, you can enjoy these just as they are, or you can serve them at room temperature. These would be great for lunchboxes as well. You can create your own Lunchables for your kids especially if you have some Bento Boxes like these.
