Caprese English Muffin Pizzas

Patricia Stagich

Ingredients

  • English muffins, split
  • 2 Tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 Cup  Parmesan cheese, grated
  • medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 8 Ounces  fresh mozzarella, diced
  • 1/4 Cup  fresh basil, torn into small pieces
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  red pepper flakes
  • 1 Teaspoon  oregano

English muffin pizzas are a hit. A crispy, crunchy crust makes a lighter caprese pizza perfect for starters or appetizers.

Directions

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the muffins onto foil-lined baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and top with the Parmesean cheese. Bake 5-6 minutes. Combine the remaining ingredients and mix well.  Mound over the muffin halves. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese and broil for 6-8 minutes or until heated through and cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown.
