Make-Ahead Mini Muffin Pizzas – Back to School

pizzamuffin5

Can you all believe its already mid August?? I’ve been trying to live in denial that summer might actually end, but Famous Footwear and Old Navy will just not give it a rest. So. many. back to school commercials going on.

 

Which isn’t entirely depressing… I love fall. Love boots, changing leaves, football tailgates… my birthday… :)

 

But most of all (totally not surprising), I love fall food. We start getting back into some comfort food – and there is nothing more comforting than pizza! Especially as a kid.

And the beautiful thing that sets this pizza recipe apart – is that these are COMPLETELY make-ahead. Whether you are a mom trying to feed your kids quick after school, or a working lady scrambling home from work… starving! These are awesome. Make a big batch on Sunday and plop in the freezer  - then all you have to do is throw them in the oven for a couple minutes whenever you want to eat em’!

 

Plus these are the sneakiest little pizzas you will ever find…. that yummy looking pizza sauce is packed with nutrient dense veggies – a healthy dose of zucchini, carrot, and tomato. For a lot of little kids (and definitely some big kids!), veggies aren’t always top on the food pyramid. These are a great way to sneak in some extra produce – your kids (or best friend…) will have no idea.

  1. Sneaky veggies, my favorite kind ;) I love how easy these are and that they’re make ahead and that um…PIZZA!

    Ugh but summer, don’t go!

  2. English muffin pizzas take me back to my childhood. Love the extra veggies in the sauce. I am excited for fall although I could take a few more weeks of summer now that the weather is not as hot and humid on the east coast.

  3. We do this so often in my house for a quick week night meal! So good!!

  4. I am a huge fan of anything I can make ahead and stick in the freezer! My inner child is crying out for one right now! I am absolutely going to have to try that sauce recipe! I love the hidden veggies.

  5. This is awesome!! Logan isn’t big enough to eat these…but I sure am!!

  6. Ahhh these bring back some fond memories of my school days. We often made these in cooking class and I still think they’re great!

      Haha me too! Completely forgot! Pizza muffins are definitely a staple… or pizza bagels, LOVED those as a kid too :)

  7. I love this idea of getting a few extra veggies into the diet. I used to make these for my kiddos when they were little…I think they’d still love them now!

  8. OMG. This idea is blowing my mind. Haha. I LOVE IT!! I`m definitely try this out! :D Plus, sneaking some veggies inside? Love it.
