English Muffin Pizza

My kids are picky eaters.  My husband and I tried to force them to eat the meals I prepared; we tried to make them sit until the plate was clean; we tried wrapping the plate and producing it for the next meal.   Dinnertime became a daily battle that we decided to stop fighting, but  I refused to live only to eat meatballs, ham, and pasta (okay, they DO eat a few more things). I will not make a new meal for the kids, but I do have foods on hand that they can organize easily into a meal.  

These pizza muffins are not only a safe alternative, but they are quick for those days we need to be at practice at 5:00.   Or, they are great when I am tired of preparing 3 meals a day and cleaning up tons of dirty dishes.


  • English muffins
  • Pizza sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Italian spices
  • Pepperoni or other toppings

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. Split English muffins and place halves on baking sheet.
  3. Top each muffin half with sauce (about 1 T each), pepperoni, and cheese or other toppings.
  4. Sprinkle with dash of Italian seasoning.
  5. Bake 4-6 minutes until cheese is bubbly.
In this picture, you miss seeing the one with no sauce and the one with no cheese...but they ate and asked for more.

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 10 minutes

  1. i used to make this for my nephew! but, i used our local bread, pan de sal. Now that I have a daughter, I decided to make this again and she loved it! I shared this on my Facebook page, and I'll do a post on my blog about this! Thanks for the inspiration :)

  2. Thanks for commenting! I had totally forgotten about this easy lunch or dinner option for kids until I visited one of my friends and she was making them. Thanks for sharing on FB; we appreciate it! Good luck with your blog!
