“I made this for my son today when he requested pizza, and I didn't have the ingredients on hand to make the pizza dough. I used to make this growing up, and I love it. You can use either an english muffin, or two pieces of bread, whichever you have on hand and prefer. I prefer to toast the english muffin or bread lightly before adding toppings. Use any toppings you prefer.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 English muffins or 2 pieces bread, lightly toasted
  • 4 tablespoons pizza sauce (spaghetti sauce would work too) or 4 tablespoons tomato sauce (spaghetti sauce would work too)
  • 4 tablespoons shredded cheese (or 2 slices of cheese, whichever you have on hand)
  • 8 slices pepperoni


  1. Lightly toast the english muffin or bread.
  2. Top with the sauce, then cheese, and then toppings of your choice.
  3. Microwave for 30 seconds or place in toaster oven for a few minutes- long enough for the cheese to melt.
