When I was little, my mom would have these amazing English Muffin Pizzas made with Bays English Muffins waiting fresh out of the oven. Full of flavor and simply made, they hit the spot after a long day at school or sports practice.  

You may be thinking, English Muffins are a breakfast food. We are here to turn that idea around, and get your creative juices flowing.

You can even toast the Bays English Muffins before the kids get home, since you bake them again in the oven.

Add the toppings and put the English Muffin Mini Pizzas in a broiler to crisp up.  Could not be any easier than that. Save any extra cooked chicken from dinner or purchase precooked chicken strips from the grocery store to make this even simpler.

Bake and serve up these amazing mini pizzas. Trust me they will be gone in minutes.
