Personal pizzas

Friday night was a good night for personalized pizzas. The English muffin kind.

Quick and easy to make, they provide an opportunity for real personalization when the tastes in the household vary. Toast the English muffins first. Then be as creative as you'd like: tomato sauce, spices, cheese, pepperoni, or vegetable toppings (onions, peppers, olives, etc.).

This can be a good idea for a kids party. Let them get involved with making their own. This helps to foster good choices a la the Jamie Oliver video I shared here last week.

Put the completed individual pizzas on a cookie sheet, into the over on Broil setting, and watch carefully to remove just when the cheese has melted and started to show browning spots (or to what ever degree of doneness you prefer!)

Add a beverage of your choice and voila, a meal easy to make and easy to eat!
