This is my interpretation of a recipe I saw on PBS Sprout ON Demand (they didn't list the recipe, so my Mom (Mommy Diva) and I played around and came up with this one). Fun for little ones. Adjust the amounts of sauce and cheeses to your personal preferences. Would be a fun idea for an Elmo themed kid's party!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly toast the english muffin until it just begins to crisp, then remove from oven.
  2. Spread 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce on each half.
  3. Sprinkle with the shredded cheese, then add two slices of pepperoni topped with black olive for eyes, an oval of cheddar cheese for a nose and 4 semi-circles of pepperoni as a smiley mouth as you build a face on each half of muffin.
  4. 375 degrees for 5-10 minutes until cheese is lightly melted.

My {almost} 2 year old giggled and shouted "ELMO!!" when I put these in front of him. :) He also loved the taste.... he really loved Elmo's "eyes" - (the olives) -- so much more I had to give Elmo a few extra eyes. ;) Thanks so much for sharing such a cute idea!!!

Just when you thought that you knew everything you needed to know about Elmo, you discover he then can be made into a pizza! Grandbabe made and much to his delight.

Too cute! And tasty! I'm a big fan of The Muppets, so I just had to make this for myself :) Though Elmo's not my favorite, I enjoyed eating him! LOL I had everything on hand for this except pepperoni so cut a couple slices of hard salami into 8 smaller circles, which worked perfectly. If I had kids I'm sure they'd love this as much as I did :) Thanks so much for sharing!
