The English muffin pizzas are a fantastic option for a quick and easy meal or snack. A great option for the kids after school. And so much less work than a regular homemade pizza.

You can use pizza sauce instead of tomato sauce if you have some handy. If you do decide to use pizza sauce you will not need to add the basil and oregano as pizza sauce is already seasoned.

Or if you are feeling adventurous, you can make our Homemade Pizza Sauce.

Additionally, if you don’t have any mozzarella cheese on hand you can substitute for another good white melting cheese like Monterey Jack Cheese.

You can also make these delicious mini pizzas in a toaster oven or an air fryer. I recommend Air Frying @ 400°F for 3 – 4 minutes. Time may vary based on the model of the air fryer so I suggest checking your pizzas at the 3-minute mark.
