English Muffin Pizza
My mom used to make English muffin pizza all the time when I was growing up. I realize why now. It is super easy to make and when you are tired from a long day it is a great dinner to throw together. It is also a great dinner to have your kids come and help make. My kids always loved helping to make English muffin Pizza. It is a fun recipe for them to actually help cook with me in the kitchen. They also loved putting on aprons and helping to put all the toppings on the pizza.
Healthy Alternative to Pizza
English Muffin Pizzas, of course, when I was growing up had the normal toppings of cheese, hamburger, or pepperoni. Since we don’t eat any of that anymore I have had to modify this recipe to fit our whole food plant-based lifestyle. It tastes so much better now and is a whole lot healthier. I use my homemade 100% whole wheat English muffins . It tastes great with homemade English muffins, I usually have some in my freezer. However, if you don’t have time store-bought might be the faster option.
This pizza is topped with a lot of yummy vegetables. I use our homegrown green peppers, tomatoes, and onions and then I add some mushrooms. Tomatoes are the key to this recipe, especially if they are homegrown tomatoes. I just love it when I can use my vegetables from my vegetable garden that is only 20 feet away from my kitchen. You can’t get more local than that. The tomatoes make the pizza taste so good!

What do you put in an English Muffin?
There are lots of ideas of things you can put on or in an English muffin. I like to just toast my English muffins and eat them plain but they taste good with fruit on them or peanut butter or even with just hummus.
English Muffin breakfast toaster would also be good with scrambled tofu and peppers and onions. English muffins also make a great lunch sandwich as well. Blend up some carrots and then add chickpeas and add a little mustard, toast your English muffin and you have yourself an excellent lunch!
