Growing up, my mom used to make us English Muffin pizzas quite frequently. So, I make these for my family now, and they are always a hit. They are an inexpensive (and healthier) alternative to Bagel Bites, and are ready to serve in less time than it takes to preheat the oven. You can use any pizza combination to make these (my husband likes pepperoni and my daughter likes cheese). I made a Margherita English Muffin pizza yesterday, and it was delightful! Inexpensive, and on the table in 10 minutes!
Margherita English Muffin Pizzas (Makes 8 individual pizzas)

- 3 TBS fresh chopped Basil

- Spread 1 TBS pasta/pizza sauce if desired, on English Muffin half.
- Sprinkle 1.5 TBS cheese on English Muffin half.
