Ode to the English muffin. It’s ideal for breakfast and can be used for many lunch, snack and even dinner recipes. English muffins are great when you make them into pizzas. It’s also great fun for the kids to do as a family cooking task. Build your own pizzas work great for birthday parties as well!
The English muffin pizza is definitely in the top few favourite recipes of mine to do with an English muffin .
Here’s how I make them. The great thing, though, is that you can put absolutely anything on them so as many toppings as you can imagine on your pizza can be done. The nooks and crannies take in the pizza sauce and the cheese in a a beautiful way.
Halve your English Muffin. Don’t use a knife! Do it with your fingers or with a fork. This preserves the ability of the nooks and crannies to take on your toppings and turn them into something even more delicious than a regular ole pizza.
Spread with sauce. Any pizza sauce will do.
Top with Cheese. Mozzarella on its own is great but I love doing a combo of mozzarella and cheddar
Crown your English muffin pizzas with whatever else you like. Pepperoni, peppers, mushrooms, ham, pineapple…whatever!
Put them under a low broiler for a few minutes and watch them. Or, just a few minutes in a toaster over will do, too.
You can do this with halved bagels too but as much as I adore bagels, they don’t have those little nooks. Crumpets are fantastic too but due to their shape, English muffins work best.
