Mini-Pizzas: Design Your Own

English muffins--
(disguised as pizzas)

They are quick, easy, delicious and everyone gets to pick his or her own toppings.  Happy Day!

Here's What You Need:

*English muffins, split in half (the whole grain muffins are wonderful)
*Pizza sauce in a squeeze bottle, left-over spaghetti sauce--canned or home-made.
*Mozzarella cheese, grated---other kinds of cheese are tasty, too.
*variety of toppings--whatever you have and your child likes: olives, tomatoes, green peppers, mushrooms, cooked chicken, pepperoni, ham, pineapple--the possibilities are limitless.

Here's What You Do:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Let your little one split the English muffin with a table knife--it's the perfect time to practice cutting as the muffins are mostly pre-split. Give each child a plate with half a muffin.  Let them spread the tomato sauce on top and then sprinkle the grated cheese.  Decorate with selected toppings.  Place the "pizzas" on a cookie sheet in the hot oven until cheese is melted.  Take from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Enjoy a satisfying lunch together!

Warning--the song on the link below will get stuck in your head! (but it's fun)
