Ingredients:

Pizza Crust & Toppings:

2 whole-wheat or multigrain English muffins, lightly toasted

Fresh basil, chopped

Red Bell pepper, thinly sliced

Mozzarella (shredded, string, or fresh)

8 olive slices 

*For the vegan pizza, I used caramelized onions instead of cheese.

Pizza Sauce:

  • ¼ cup crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon Italian spices
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° Place halved English muffins on a baking sheet.
  2. Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Add a spoonful of sauce to each half and top with basil and pepper.
  3. Line cheese along the top of the ingredients. I used a small amount of cheese, but you can add more to fully wrap your mummy.
  4. Pop the olive slices on for eyes, and bake for about 15 minutes.

I made one vegan pizza in my batch, and it was amazing! Use caramelized onions as a flavorful substitute for the cheese. 

Additional Instructions:

1. Caramelize onions by cooking them with a dash of olive at low-medium heat for about 10 minutes.

2. Line onions just like the cheese and heat for the same amount of time.
