English Muffin Mini Pizzas Quick and Easy
Life has a way of changing. Sometimes it’s gradual and we don’t really notice until the kids start getting older and sometimes it rushes in like a tornado.
Well, my tornado has arrived. Grampy is now retired. I won’t go into details except that he will be showing up in the kitchen occasionally, and I do mean occasionally!!!!!
These cute little pizzas are grampy’s snack for the afternoon. Is he kidding? a snack, this can be supper . . .

- drizzle of olive oil
- grated parmesean cheese, approx. 1-2 tsp. per muffin half (optional)

- Sprinkle the chopped parsley, basil and salt & pepper on top and add grated cheese.
- Drizzle a little olive oil over each muffin.
- Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until the cheese melts and the muffins are heated through.
Make these anytime, any day. For a light quick meal you can make a mixed green salad. Granmpy’s glass of Chianti goes well with the mini pizzas quick and easy – but just for adults. I like to give the kids fresh grape juice.
Serve these English muffin mini pizzas quick and easy with a mixed green salad for a quick and easy economical meal. FYI-I usually use Whole Grain English Muffins these days, though you can use your favorite style of English muffins.
Kids of all ages enjoy these mini pizzas as an anytime snack. When it’s too early to start dinner and someone is “soooooo hungry” you can make these in just a few minutes. Great little appetizer.
Having a game day gathering? This is another popular snack you can have ready. Make this ham, cheese, spinach stromboli in advance. A hearty snack or game day appetizer will have everyone cheering.
