Toddler lunch: mini bagel pizzas

If my son’s daycare allowed us to send bagels, he’d be eating these for lunch.  Alas, his are normally served on English muffins.  The poor child.

Since the little one can’t take these to school, we like these mini pizza bagels for weekend lunches and game-time snacks.  This would also be nice to have on hand for baby-sitters to pop into the oven.

They’re quick and easy to make and they’re freezer-friendly.

Just a few quick ingredients.  Bagels, pizza sauce, cheese and whatever pizza toppings you like.  Core out the bagels a little bit to make room for the sauce.  Top with cheese and add your favorite toppings.  I’m a mushroom girl.  My toddler likes pepperoni.  The hubby likes chorizo.

My little man likes to help with the toppings.

Oregano is a pizza must-have.

Not exactly revolutionary, but pizza bagels are a hit with every member of the family.

mozzarella cheese
pizza toppings: pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, peppers, onions, chorizo, chicken, tomatoes, basil, etc. etc.
dried oregano

Preheat oven to 475°  Dig a little channel in each bagel half and fill the sauce into the moat.  Top with cheese & favorite toppings.  Bake until cheese is bubbly and slightly browned, about 12 minutes.

If you’d like to individually portion these and store for a later date, after topping the bagels, wrap in aluminum foil.  Store in a plastic freezer bag in your freezer.  To reheat: bake covered loosely with aluminum foil at 475ºF for 10 minutes.  Remove foil and continue baking until cheese is bubbly & lightly browned.

    You are fantastic, but we are biased. What is in you is what was in our great grandmothers, our grand mothers and our mothers, all women we have been granted the privilege to know, but we suspect it was also in the generations before them. You have just taken it to the next level. Our grand children are in good hands. They will make a difference. That is the heritage and calling that is passed from generation through generation and this family.
