Easy English Muffin Pizza Recipe on a plate

English Muffin Pizza

You can easily have fun with these super fun pizzas and add more of your favorite toppings such as pepperoni, vegetables, tomatoes or just extra cheese. The secret to making these great is to start with great English muffins. Some of these breads are thicker, so you’ll get a thicker “crust”, like a thick crust pizza. Our taste testers preferred the thinner Thomas’ brand of English muffins. Either way, you really can’t go wrong with this simple pizza recipe that’s so versatile and not only love by little kids, but the big kids as well (parents)! Here’re more kids recipe ideas.

Pizza Topping Ideas

There’s so many different toppings that you can add to these for kids. They’ll love all the options and make it fun for them. They won’t be bored and it’ll be a great way for you to use leftover ingredients as toppings too. We call it the “kitchen sink” pizza.

  • pepperoni
  • leftover chopped meats like chicken
  • different types of cheeses: swiss, gouda, cheddar and jarlsburg are just a few ideas
  • small chopped veggies. This is a great way to sneak in those veggies!
  • white alfredo sauce
  • salsa topped with shredded cheese – give the pizzas a little zing!
