English Muffin Pizza

Today is the fifth day of the marathon and the recipe name starts with “E”. Coming up with a dish that starts with letter “E” was quite challenging. I always had egg recipes; egg curry or egg fried rice as backup recipes but I was not keen on posting either of those. All I could think of were enchiladas & empanadas. I pretty much narrowed it down to empanadas but was still searching for more ideas. I Googled for food starting with “E” and landed on this page. Oh my, there is a page for foods starting with all the alphabets! What would I have done if Google didn’t exist and wondered how we survived the pre Google era? I found Éclairs on the list which appealed me but today I wanted an easy recipe. There was edamame (fresh soya beans) on the list and I quickly ran down to the store and bought a pack of shelled edamame and oven roasted it. The problem with that is I would have to play around with the name. I have to change Roasted Edamame to edamame roast or edamame roasted in the oven. I did not like the idea of twisting the name around and as I scrolled down the list of foods stating with E, there was English muffins. Again google to rescue and found an English Muffin Pizza and here I am with the recipe.

Preparation:

  • Pre heat the oven to 425 F.
  • While the oven is heating, slice each muffin into 2 slices. Use a fork to cut the muffin and tear it open.
  • Cut or tear each pepperoni slice into 4 pieces. Stack 3-4 pepperoni slices and then cut it into 4 pieces to speed up the process.
  • Put the muffin slices on a baking tray. If using pizza sauce, spread it on each muffin slice.
  • Sprinkle cheese on the muffin slices and top it off with pepperoni pieces. I used 7 pieces (each pepperoni slice cut into 4 pieces) per slice.
  • Pop them in the oven and bake for 7 – 8 minutes. I baked one batch for 7 minutes and other for 8 minutes.
  • Both were god but I liked the ones I baked for 7 minutes. The pizzas in the picture were baked for 8 minutes.
  • Sprinkle some pepper flakes and dig in right way.

Notes:

  • I used pepperoni slices but can use any topping. Can add veggies too but I have not tried it yet.
  • I was very frugal with cheese as I do not like too much cheese. If serving for kids, add more cheese. Use your discretion.
  • Oven temperatures vary from oven to oven. Keep an eye on the pizzas.
