English Muffin Pizzas

Want a fast, easy dinner that everyone will love? Of course, who doesn't? These English muffin pizzas are seriously the easiest dinner ever and every single person can make their own so the whole family ends up happy. And it only takes 10 minutes to bake!

I have made a lot of homemade pizzas before and if you have time to make your own crust, good for you! But if you, like most of us are crunched for time, this is amazing! The English muffins stay relatively soft but get crisp on the outside and have great flavor.

I'm going to share the recipe for the pizzas that I made but the possibilities are endless with this one. You really can use any ingredients you and your family likes. If everyone wants to make their own and you want to keep the pizzas straight, use parchment paper to put under the pizzas and have each person write their name on the parchment paper. My mom and I did this for homemade pizzas at my sister-in-law's bridal shower and it worked wonderfully! Speaking of which, these would be an awesome idea for bridal showers, baby showers, and parties!

English Muffin Pizzas

Ingredients (the amount of ingredients varies by how many pizzas you are making and personal preference for how heavy the ingredients are piled on):

  • Spaghetti sauce (I used Prego Chunky Garden: Tomato, Onion, and Garlic)
  • Italian seasoning

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
