My daughter makes these on a regular basis for her kids, and a couple that she baby sits on a regular basis.  The kids all look forward to this great snack after school.  The kids all have activities afterschool (soccer, ballet, etc) so they all need an extra boost of energy.   Glad you brought this up as a great reminder to other bakers/ moms/ grandmas.

This is one of the first meals that I was allowed to make for my family when I was little.  I was so proud when my Dad requested I make it for us again a week later.  Thanks for the memory.

I use to make these on sourdough muffins for the kids when they were here, I even cut the muffins in 5 pieces to make them look like pizza slices.

I have some great memories of making english muffin pizzas!  We have passed this tradition on to our grandson who loves to make his own special pizza.  I like the idea from Fran M on slicing them up to look like mini pizza slices!  How fun!

You brought back memories.  When my sons were growing up we made this quite often; especially on l/2 day sessions.

I've made ketchup pizza using toasted English muffins or bread and grated cheese.  Then I just put them under the broiler for 5-10 minutes until the cheese is bubbly.  I'll have to try using pita bread.  I also have heard of using Naan bread for a pizza base.

I don't know that it was English Muffin Pizza, but this reminded me of how my mother would make a kind of sloppy joe - brown ground beef and add the ingredients that she used for barbacue sauce (ketchup, brown sugar, lemon juice, and other seasonings), put that on top of toasted English muffin halves, top with cheese, and broil it to melt the cheese.  We didn't have the variety of breads that we do now, so pita bread and naan would be great ideas.

These are our party staple including New Year's Eve & Superbowl Sunday.  With much food, I make cheese only, without topping.  They're usually devoured before I can put the serving tray down.  During Lent, this is a Friday meal with a salad for us...it's one Friday the boys don't complain about No Meat Friday

I've found it is safer for the kids to use the toaster oven too.

The same can be done with pita bread. A bit larger so slices can be cut but it is also thinner so it cooks faster.

Hi BARBARA B & OTHERS ;
We make them ( ENGLISH MUFFIN PIZZAS)several times a week, serve w/  a salad or /veggie soup.I buy  WHOLE GRAIN or LOW CARB( high fiber)  English muffins(several  brands available, here)
Still makes a pretty good easy pizza; much better nutritional profile;
still fast & easy to makeSmile
 When we have pasta & sauce,I "squirel" away [HUBBY'S TERM) 1/2 cup of sauce, before serving(no one knows, but me) freeze in (zip top  snack bags) & always  have pizza sauce for these "INSTANT PIZZAS", on hand 
[ mico-thaw pretty fast in a custard cup]

I love "little" pizzas.  They are great for one or a group.

We used to make these when we were kids!  Seems like make-your-own mini pizzas (no matter what you use for crust) are a hit, no matter what the age group!
