Easy Pizza Bar for a Kids Party
These are the perfect meal to make for a kids party, like our Ninja Turtles Pizza party!
To set things up set it up as stations. Have one station set up where the english muffins are. Then place the different toppings on plates or bowls. Let the kids put the sauce, cheese and toppings on. Then have an adult bake them in the oven.
If you are going to make them for a pizza party then I suggest using a toaster oven (This is the one we have that I love!) vs the regular oven so you can have the kids be more involved and learn how to use an oven.
You can keep the pizza fun going when you are having a party by also making S’Mores Cookie Pizza and Fruit Cookie Pizza!

How to Make English Muffin Pizza
Making these mini pizzas is so easy. All you have to do is preheat your oven. While the oven is heating up split each of the muffins so you have 12 english muffins halves.
Spread the pizza sauce on top of the english muffin. Top the english muffins with the shredded mozzarella cheese. Put your toppings of choice on top of the cheese.
Place the mini pizzas on a baking sheet and bake in the oven. You will know they are done baking when you see the cheese melted on top of them.
