English Muffin Pizzas

With school in full swing, I can guarantee three starved children will walk through my door every day at 3:20pm.

It never fails.

Rather than allow them to raid the pantry, I prefer to do one of two things:
1.  Make a "mini-meal" to hold them over until dinner.
2.  Make them dinner and send them off to their after school activities.

These pizzas are a mini-meal, perfect to hold their tummies until dinner is ready to be served.  What makes these little guys even more wonderful is that my kids can almost make them alone, which ups the chances considerably they will eat them.

Kids love to eat stuff they make. 

Add in easy ingredients and a 15 minute turnover from start to finish, and these little beauties rock the house (all the way down!).

Was anyone else a cheerleader?

Go English-Muffin-Pizzas!

1 can pizza sauce (or pasta sauce if you must)
1 package English muffins
Shredded cheese
pepperoni, bacon bits or other desired toppings

Heat over to 350.  Toast muffin slightly, about 3 to 5 minutes.  Either have your child spoon sauce onto muffin and sprinkle with cheese, or prepare muffin yourself.

On tinfoil, place muffins back in oven for 5-10 minutes, until cheese is melted.

  1. We do this, too, only we use pitas (whole wheat, usually). I up the oven temp to 400 and bake about 10 minutes. And we call it "dinner" on busy nights (like tonight).


Throw in your two cents!
