Everyone loves to customize their meals, making it just the way they like it. It’s not always practical but there are fun situations where it’s possible. I partnered with Bays English Muffins to showcase one such example, a DIY mini pizza bar!
What is a mini pizza bar? Think about it like a salad bar at a restaurant, you go and customize your own salad using ingredients you prefer. Homemade mini pizza bars are the same way. You customize your own mini pizza using the toppings you prefer.
DIY Mini Pizza Bar
DIY mini pizza bars are perfect for entrees for little kids. Feeding adults? Let them make several.
Customized mini pizzas also solve the problem with picky pizza eaters. Love pineapple but hate pepperoni? Make your own mini pizza to enjoy all by yourself!
Besides accommodating everyone’s topping choices, mini pizza bars are awesome because of how easy they are to set up. The biggest time saver is using English muffins as the mini pizza crust!
Mini Pizza Crusts
Bays English Muffins are not just for breakfast. They are perfect any time of day including fun dinner or party food options like this homemade mini pizza bar.
You can find Bays English Muffins in the dairy section near the eggs and milk. This keeps the English muffins fresher.
Mini Pizza Toppings Ideas
Besides the crust, you need the usual pizza subjects like tomato or spaghetti sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic salt.
The number of mini pizza toppings is only limited by your imagination and your guests’ pizza preferences. Just keep in mind that all the toppings should be chopped smaller than normal. For example, I cut pepperoni slices into quarters so they would better fit on top of the muffins.
Mini Pizza Bar Ingredients
- 6 BAYS English Muffins, toasted
- Spaghetti sauce
- Garlic salt
- Oregano or Italian seasonings
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
- Optional pizza toppings: pepperoni, olives, onions, whatever you like on your pizza
Mini Pizza Recipe
Top 1/2 of a toasted English muffin with 1 TB of spaghetti sauce, unless you really like sauce and add a bit more. Then sprinkle with garlic salt and Italian seasoning.
Let everyone top their own mini pizza with their favorite toppings. Add about 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese on top and broil until the cheese is lightly golden.
