These Pizzas are Quick and Healthy and your topping options and creations are endless!!

Mini Pizzas
pizza cheese
organic no added sugar pizza sauce
Toppings of your choice

toppings here for one pizza are:
organic portabella mushrooms
onions and green peppers chopped
nitrate free pepperoni

Toppings for the other pizza here a( Margherita pizza) are:
fresh basil
heirloom tomatoes

Directions: thaw English Muffins...Ezekiel Muffins come in the freezer section only.  They have these at Ingles.  I thaw them in the microwave on defrost for a couple of minutes.  Split the muffins in half. Place on baking sheet. Add sauce, cheese, the toppings. I sauted my mushroom,onions, and peppers before putting them on my pizzas.  Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes. ENJOY!!

My ingredients
Peppers, onions,mushrroms in olive oil

English Muffins Halfed
Add your sauce
Cheese (organic valley if you can find it is good)
Add toppings..this is my version of combination pizza
This one is tomato and basil...which is Margherita pizza
Bake at 350 for 8 min...Yumm!!!

Here is a fun fact...Margherita pizza is named after a appropriate that I love it..It has nothing to do with the drink margarita from Mexico.  This is an Italian story...It's history dates back to1889.  The Queen summoned the Chef Raffaele Esposito from his pizzeria to the royal palace, ordered him to bake a selection of pizzas for her pleasure. To honor the Queen, Raffaele decided to make a very special pizza just for her. He baked a pizza topped with tomatoes, Mozzarella cheese and fresh basil (to represent the colors of the Italian flag: red, white and green) and called it 'Pizza Margherita'...and so..this Queen B likes it too :D
