Yes! I totally love this idea! In fact this quick meal is one of the lunches that my 9yo son requests often. And he has learned how to make it himself, so we try to keep the ingredients in the kitchen at all times!
Wow, that’s so great that he makes it by himself Amy. It’s nice to have simple recipes like that on hand to let kids be more independent.
Oh yes, I used to do something like this when I was a teen and hungry for a quick snack. I would run the assembled English Muffin pizza under the broiler in my gas stove for a quick, hot and delicious meal (no microwaves in that day).
I guess it’s a timeless lunch idea Alanaa 🙂
I love that you posted this. I used to do this with bagels “back in the day” in home-ec class. Still great for busy young professionals – quick and delicious!
So true Sonya, it’s a good lunch for any age. And yes, bagel pizza is so yummy too!
Love how approachable and easy to follow your recipes are. This is great and thank you so much for sharing.
