English Muffin “Pizzas”

When I was little one of my favorite snacks was English muffin pizzas. In fact the year I turned seven I had a luau birthday party and we made English muffin pizzas with all sorts of topping choices. The other day my mom and I were looking for something for lunch and I put these together. These are a bit of a grown up version of the pizzas I used to make. Add more or less vegetable proportions depending on your taste! (Serves 2)

Ingredients:

Two whole wheat English muffins

Five large fresh basil leaves sliced thinly or chopped

1/2 of a yellow or red pepper sliced thin

About fifteen thin strips of red onion

1 Roma tomato sliced thin

1 cup of mozzarella cheese shredded

1/4 cup of parmesan cheese shredded

olive oil

balsamic vinegar

salt and pepper

Instructions:

Heat a broiler on high heat. (I say broiler, as you may have an oven with a broiler function, or you may have a separate broiler…like on Rachael Ray’s 30 minute meals)

Split English muffins so you have four halves and toast them. Place them on a cookie sheet. In a saute pan on medium heat, cook the yellow pepper and onion in about 1 tbs of olive oil with a dash of salt and pepper, until tender. After onions and peppers are tender add in tomatoes and about 1 tbs of balsamic vinegar and cook until the tomatoes soften about 1 to 2 minutes. Divide the saute mixture among the English muffins. Top with basil leaves, then the cheese. Toast in broiler until cheese is melted and begins to brown. Serve and enjoy!
