We enjoy these for a quick lunch for the kids and they just love them. You can experiment with a variety of toppings or set everything out and let the kids dive in and top their own. They will have a great time. We usually just make them as instructed below and they are delicious. My husband also makes this on leftover hamburger or kaiser buns instead of the bagel.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 bagels, cut in halves (can use any kind you desire)
  • 1 (213 ml) can pizza sauce
  • 6 slices pepperoni (thin slices) or 6 slices salami (thin slices)
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated


  1. Cut the bagels in half and lay on a baking sheet.
  2. On top of each bagel spread on pizza sauce, making sure to cover all spots.
  3. Top with pepperoni and cheese.
  4. Put in oven at 375 degrees and bake approximately 10 minutes or until cheese and meat are bubbly.

These are good as what you put on them! I used leftover sauce, pepperoni and topped with cheese and lots of herbs. I did put the bagels under the broiler to toast then topped and baked. This is a great appetizer for kids both big and small.

Extrememly yummy! I make these for dinner about once every other week. If you want the bagels crispy, try toasting the bagels beforehand.
