English Muffin Pizza
Kids LOVE pizza. Actually I think pizza may be a household favorite in our house. We like to make large pizzas with fresh dough but that can be time consuming on busy days. Making pizza on English muffins is quick and easy! Of course you can substitute the English muffins for pizza dough or naan bread too.
Want to turn your English muffin pizza into a snowman pizza? We’ll show you how!
Watch the full tutorial video here before you get started!
Ingredients Needed for English Muffin Pizza
– Mozzarella Cheese
– Pizza toppings – if making the snowman pizzas we used black olives, orange and red peppers and bread sticks. Don’t forget pepperoni if you’d like to make a regular pepperoni pizza.
How to Make English Muffin Pizzas
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Break open your English muffin and then add your pizza sauce.
2. Top with your choice of cheese – we like to use mozzarella especially if you’re making a snowman pizza since you want your snowman to be white!
3. Now add your toppings or snowman facial features! We used black olives for the eyes and mouth. An orange pepper for the nose. Red peppers for the scarf and bread sticks for the arms.
How Long To Cook English Muffin Pizzas
We cooked our pizzas in the oven, however you can cook them in a toaster oven, or microwave too!
English Muffin Pizza in Oven: Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Place in Oven for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and not too brown so the cheese stays white. Or if you like your cheese cooked more, leave in for a few minutes longer.
English Muffin Pizza in Toaster Oven: Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Place in Toaster Oven for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted and not too brown so the cheese stays white.
English Muffin Pizza in Microwave: If you would like to use the microwave to make your pizzas, here is what we suggest:
1. First, toast your English muffins in a conventional toaster
2. Then add your pizza sauce and cheese.
3. Put in the microwave on a low setting to melt the cheese. Watch carefully and start with only 10-15 seconds at a time. Microwave cooking time can vary.
4. Add your toppings after your cheese is melted. You won’t be able to cook your toppings but you can use precooked pepperoni to add on top.
