I grabbed a bag of shredded mozarella cheese, some Pizza Quick (but you could whip up your own and have on hand in the fridge), a bag of pepperoni, and a bag of Bagel Thins:
I bought these Bagel Thins at Costco (24 count for $6.29). They are one of my new favorite products. The kids have gone crazy for these! They are so versatile, smear them with flavored cream cheese for breakfast, use them for sandwiches, spread with butter, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and broil in the oven; or....bagel pizza! Each one is 100 calories and (don't tell the kids) have 4 grams of fiber (they think I'm the Fiber Nazi, and so they are leery of anything new I try pushing on them)!
Spread the bagel with pizza sauce, sprinkle with cheese, and add your favorite topping.
I cooked them on our Pizza Pizzazz (a Christmas gift from long ago; that as you can tell by the pan has been well used!).
If you don't have one bake at 400 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes; until the cheese has melted and is bubbly.
These were so easy to make Child #4 (who is eight) assembled his own! If you want to make a low calorie (high fiber) grown up version replace the Bagel Thins with Whole Wheat Sandwich thins(also purchase at Costco 24 count for $6.29) each one is 100 calories, 5 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protien, and 16 usuable carbs.
Add veggies instead of pepperoni (or use turkey pepperoni) and use reduced fat mozarella cheese.
You can make up a large batch of these (do not bake), place them on wax paper lined cookie sheets, and freeze in the freezer. When they are frozen wrap in foil or carefully stack in a gallon sized plastic freezer bag. To cook frozen bagel pizzas:
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees
- Unwrap bagel pizza (if wrapped in plastic or foil)
- Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet
- Bake for 15 - 18 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly
