Top Review by Aspiring Chef Rita

The first time I had one of these was during the summer on Long Island 50 years ago. My girlfriend's very Italian mother made them for us. I loved them - hated for the summer to end!! Many years later I saw a recipe for them on Thomas' English muffin box and I've been making them ever since. I don't make mine healthy like these. I used the jarred pizza sauce, some italian herbs and lots of whole mozzarella. I am glad to see this recipe though I have been trying to cook healthier. I do agree with this submitter that toasting the muffins a bit before adding sauce adds to the taste - but if you are in a rush - forget it. Children and adults LOVE these - great snacks for football watching. Be creative with toppings!
