Well this afternoon at work, I remembered how I had a package of english muffins left at home that had so far gone untouched. My stomach can’t seem to handle them (too much fiber) so I thought I could try and pawn them off on my hubby, Scott. In order to do this I knew I would have to come up with a tasty concoction for him to agree to eat them…he doesn’t really like wheat/whole grain foods at all. So I proposed that I could make “mini pizzas” for him for dinner. I would use the english muffins as the “crust” and then add tomato sauce, cheese, and pepperonis on top. He was TOTALLY excited about the idea…so after work I stopped off at the store to get a few things, including some mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce. When I got home, I started in on the “pizzas”.
Next, I spread a generous amount of sauce on the english muffins (they are sometimes a bit dry). I picked up some mushroom and green pepper flavored tomato sauce. My hubby and I are mushroom addicts!!
Looking good already! Next I sprinkled on lots of tasty mozzarella cheese!! 🙂
Since we had regular, large turkey pepperonis at home, I decided to chop them up a bit to make them smaller so there would be more than like two large pepperonis per pizza.
I spread the cut up pepperoni on top of the pizzas and threw em in the already pre-heated to 350 degree oven!
I left them in until the cheese was melty (roughly about 15-20 minutes) and then voila!
My hubby topped it off with crushed red pepper (because he loves anything spicy!) And also decided to get the ketchup and dip the pizzas in ketchup! (A crazy idea, I know…but good! I tried a bite!)
He literally loved them so much that he ate the whole first batch and let me make another batch for him! He has been sick and hasn’t been really eating much or craving anything lately, so I was so glad I made something that hit the spot for him and that he could really truly enjoy!
This time for the second batch, I topped with some italian seasonings too!
Can anyone say best-wife-EVER?! 😀
