Healthy English Muffin Pizza
September 22, 2019 4 Comments
This healthy English muffin pizza is a classic. I bring it up because it is one we tend to forget in the land of Hot Pockets.
As you know, you can always get a pizza from Dominos I took a look at Dominos see: healthiest pizza at Dominos. But, these English muffin pizzas will save you both money and calories. I think these taste better than most almost all of the pizza joints in my town (and I live in a college town).
If you have never made an English muffin pizza, then it is time to try one.
I bought 100% whole wheat Fiber One English muffins to make this snack because they are tasty and fairly low in calories for an English muffin (90 calories each).
All you do is toast the English muffin, spread on some chopped tomatoes, toss on some cheese and broil. DONE!
You can also use a fresh tomato if you are lucky enough to have one ready to go. I put a dash of salt on my tomato to brighten it up. I add fresh basil to the top as well if I am feeling gourmet.
Don’t want the carbs? No problem just try my Portabello mushroom pizza. This is both delicious and as easy as the English muffin version. Mushroom caps do cost a bit more than English muffins.
Finally, I like to do this with Triscuits. Triscuits are whole grain, crunchy, and stand up nicely to tomatoes and cheese.
You can add whatever you have on hand to your “pizza”. I will toss sliced peppers, onions, mushrooms, salami onto this to mix it up.
If you make this often, you will find that your desire to call for pizza delivery diminishes. This is faster than the pizza guy and you control the salt, fat, and portions.
How do you make a healthy English muffin pizza? What do you put on it?
