Freezer English Muffin Pizzas | make these healthy pizzas and freeze for easy dinners

There are foods that humans just seem to inherently love from the first bite. And pizza is one of those foods. I mean, who doesn’t love pizza?! Reveal yourself if you exist.

We always assume that pizza isn’t healthy, but it’s really not that difficult to turn it into a nutritious meal. These english muffin pizzas consist of a 100% whole grain crust, pizza sauce (which is counted as a vegetable for school meals, though I’m not that lenient at my house!), some veggies and a sprinkle of cheese. Pepperoni too, if you want! Like bagel bites but healthier.

Individually, made up of good foods on their own. Put together, the ingredients are transformed into healthy english muffin pizzas that can be made in a batch and then frozen to take out and bake as needed.

If you are trying to cut down on processed food and meals, these are a great alternative for busy nights – or the nights when pizza is the only meal that will do.

And definitely a great meal to have kids help with. If they are old enough, involve them in the process of making the english muffin pizzas. Demi’s almost two, so at this age she could help sprinkle a little cheese or vegetables – though whenever I give her cheese to sprinkle, it all goes in her mouth. (You really can’t take the Wisconsin out of the girl.) Older kids could spread the pizza sauce on the english muffin, then sprinkle with toppings.

After they are assembled, they just need a night in the freezer, and can then be bagged for the future.

    we make english muffin pizzas alot at our house. they’re a great weeknight meal… and i also like to make “homemade” pizza sauce by mixing some italian seasoning into a can of tomato sauce. so much cheaper, and the jarred pizza sauce always has so much sodium. great idea to freeze them!

    Emily! We made these tonight! So good! I had never made them before…such a great idea! Next time, I’ll make more to freeze. So…an older toddler was “helpful”…sort of…Hudson sampled all of the toppings (including spoonfuls of the pizza sauce!) and took bites out of the english muffins.

      HA! That is hilarious, I love this picture of Hudson eating everything and every pizza having a bite out of it!!! So glad you liked them, thanks for letting me know!
