This English muffin pizza recipe is easy and delicious! Load up personal pizzas using the muffin as the crust.


  • 4 English muffins
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic powder, for sprinkling
  • 1/2 cup Homemade Pizza Sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Grated Parmesan or Pecorino cheese, for topping
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Smoked paprika, for sprinkling
  • Fresh basil, chopped or leaves
  • Other toppings: diced bell peppers, red onion, pepperoni, etc


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Brush the English muffins with olive oil on the cut side and place them on a baking sheet. Sprinkle each with a pinch of garlic powder and kosher salt. Bake cut side up for 6 to 7 minutes until lightly crisp and golden brown.
  3. While the English muffins bake, prepare the toppings: thinly slice the cherry tomatoes and sprinkle each with a pinch of salt, garlic powder and smoked paprika. Chop the basil. Prepare any other toppings (if using, finely dice the bell peppers and red onion).
  4. Remove the tray from the oven. Carefully top each English muffin half with about 1 1/2 tablespoons pizza sauce, 2 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese, and a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese. Add the seasoned cherry tomatoes and add a sprinkle of salt to the top of the pizza.
  5. Bake the English muffins 5 to 7 minutes until the cheese is melted. Add the chopped basil or basil leaves. Eat immediately. Leftovers can be refrigerated for 1 to 2 days and reheated in the oven.
