English Muffin Pizza – Kiddie Style

Believe it or not this is the first time I’ve made an English muffin pizza for M.  How had I not thought of this classic combo before?  M first tried this several weeks ago at her boyfriend Leo’s house. Leo’s mom & I joke about how the two of them are ‘meant to be’. I dropped her off for a little play date and Leo’s mom made this for lunch.  They looked so cute sitting at the table together eating their little pizza’s.

Saturday I decided to whip one of these up for lunch.  I served it with a side of honeydew melon.  M obviously hated it 😉

Just kidding 🙂  She devoured the entire plate!!  She loved it so much Mr. Weekly Bite decided he wanted one for lunch too.

All I did was split open the English muffin and toast it a little on the stove top.  Then I spread a little pizza sauce on top and topped it with mozzarella & cheddar cheese.  You can add whatever toppings you like.  I kept it simple and left some with plain cheese & topped others with mini-turkey pepperoni I received from Hormel several weeks ago.  I might try adding a little veggies next time I make this.

M loved this so much I added this to our regular lunch rotation 🙂

Whats your favorite way to eat pizza?  Other than the normal way 🙂

    So adorable! I love english muffin pizzas and it’s been quite a while since I’ve had one! Gotta change that!

    Hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday, Estela!

    I think this is a great idea! I like to do a pizza using portabella mushrooms as the crust. Not as good as the real thing but it works in a pinch!

    I used to do this in college – honestly, I think it needs to come back into my lunch rotation.

    That looks awesome. And you better watch out making jokes about her boyfriend. She’s adorable and you’re going to have your hands full in 15 years!

    I know! She’s going to give Mr. Weekly Bite an ulcer when she’s in high school 😉

    My kids love when I make mini pizzas like that. They like pizza bagels too. Grilled pizza sandwiches are pretty great too! Really anything pizza goes over well, right?!

    Great ideas Sarena!! I like the grilled pizza sandwich idea!

    This was one of my favorite lunches as a little kid! Instead of English Muffins, sometimes I would use Bagels and they would be awesome!
