English muffin pizzas are not revolutionary, but I realized recently that I hadn't made them for my kiddos in years.
I made these pizzas recently as an after school snack and the kiddos loved them! Our children, like in most families, come home from school ravenous and often stare at an open refrigerator or pantry and roar, "Mom, there's nothing to eat"! My response, "guys, we have plenty of snacks".
I love it, my golden opportunity...to teach my kiddos something new! My children (21, 14, and 12) have always loved to help in the kitchen, and today I decided it was time for them to cook their own snacks.
In honor of Halloween, I decided that today we would make goulish pizza snacks. I had the English muffins split apart, the sauce, the cheese, and the condiments armed and ready for the hungry monsters to walk through the door. Check! They had fun, and I enjoyed the bonding. Healthy snack created, and the roaring stopped. Check! Here's what they created...
Ingredients (for each muffin)
- English Muffins, split apart into halves (I used multi-grain...my kiddos didn't notice)
- Tomato or Pizza Sauce (1 Tablespoon (Tbsp)
- 1 teaspoon of Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning
- A dash of pepper
- Shredded Mozarella or Mexican Cheese Blend
- Cooked sausage (optional)
- Olives, sliced for eyes (optional)
- Jarred Banana Peppers (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Split apart English muffins with a fork. Assemble the pizzas, starting with the sauce, the cheese, and then the toppings. Sprinkle with Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning.
Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the mini pizzas are melty;)
Here's what they look like without the crazy faces! Enjoy!
