Friday's Kid Tested Recipe: English Muffin Pizzas

I hate sneaking food into my children's diets, so I thought I would share some of the recipes that I make with my kids (ages 4 &2)! When kids help cook, they rarely avoid the food because they helped to make it! I'll try to note steps that even the youngest children can help with in the kitchen! What kid doesn't love pizza in some form? 

What you'll need to make it!
English muffins (white or whole wheat, whatever your preference is)
Shredded Cheese (We like Kraft Italian or Mexican Blends because they melt well)
Pizza or Pasta Sauce or Pesto (We typically use Four Cheese from Classico or the Basil Pesto)
Toppings - let your imagination go wild here (Our kids love pepperoni and pineapple! We love to add green chile to ours)!
How to make it!

Kids are great at making their own pizzas!  If they're really young, put the sauce on for them and then let them add the toppings!  This is a great recipe for kid's parties or sleepovers too!  Everyone gets to make their favorite!
Split the English Muffin in half, and lightly coat each half with sauce
Sprinkle on shredded cheese and add toppings!
Lightly sprinkle on a little more cheese so you can see it brown and bubble easily in the oven!

Bake at 350 degrees until the edges of the english muffin start to brown up and the cheese starts to bubble in the middle!  It should all happen about the same time (for us it's around 10 minutes in the oven).  We serve ours with a side salad, but it's about two small pizzas per person or one english muffin per person so take that into account when shopping.  This is also a great way to use up english muffins that were previously frozen when they weren't eaten during the week!

If you opt to try the pesto version (because your garden is overgrown with basil or you just like it), we love ours with a hard cheese like parmesan mixed in with the italian blend and pepperoni..or just the plain cheese is amazing with a little chicken shredded on top!

Have a great recipe or a food/cooking blog? Feel free to link up now or send me an e-mail! I am going to start featuring recipes of others every Friday...I just haven't gotten my act together yet! I'd love it if you'd grab the button, but it's not a requirement to join in!
