My mom always made this and I was trying to think through how to put it in recipe terms. Thanks for putting words to a great memory for me!
Cranked these out assembly line style for a few dozen people (mostly kids!) at a playdate today. I did toast the muffins first. Careful - they cook rather quickly under the broiler. Kids and parents were happy. A real crowd-pleaser for relatively little money and time. I used Wegmans "Food You Feel Good About" pizza sauce. Will definitely do these for playdates in the future.
I love these. I've been making them for years. They are good with bruscetta instead of tomato sauce also. Definately a kid pleaser... put out the ingredients and let them assemble. I always put out some veggie topping options also.
Who would have thought something so simple would have proved such a hit. Just served it to my kids and they wiped the plate clean. I too used pizza sauce. Thank you so much.
This is a great snack. I use with pasta sauce, which comes in a lot more flavors and can be spooned on and recapped.
These are great! I have been eating and making these for years... it makes a quick lunch to bring to work too. Like other reviewers, I also toast the muffin first for a crispier crust. Thanks for posting!
Love the concept but modified a bit to enhance the flavor. I toasted the muffins first to make the "crust" crispier. Used pizza sauce instead of tomato sauce. I also added italian crumble cheeses on top of the mozzarella...super tasty! I've also modified to make breakfast pizzas. Thanks so much for a new family favorite that is easy to make and enjoy!
Yum! Good stuff. It's good with olives too. I always use whole wheat English muffins. Pesto is great for a change of pace from tomato sauce!
Yummy! I'm eating this right now. I topped it with chopped salami, since I didn't have any pepperoni. The recipe is very easy and good. The one thing I didn't like with the stated directions is it doesnt say to toast the muffin first, so you end up with a little too soft of a pizza/soggier pizza. That can be easily fixed though by toasting the muffin first :) Thanks for sharing!
Great treat! I have not had these since I was a kid. I did change the ingredents around to suit what I had on hand. I used garlic/onion powder,bacon bits,chopped some salami and provelone cheese.Thanks!
