  • Baking sheet – I like these baking sheets because they have a diamond texture which is good for heat distribution.
  • Parchment paper – a quick tip is that it works great for easy cleanup!
  • Serrated knife – most store-bought English muffins come pre-sliced but I make my gluten-free English muffins so use a serrated knife to cut them to prevent crushing and tearing.

  • Instead of shredded cheese use a different type of cheese. Try mozzarella, white cheddar, cheddar cheese, or plant-based cheese.
  • Instead of pizza sauce, use pasta sauce, tomato sauce, or leftover meat sauce.

  • Try a different type of meat. Ham and salami are great options but roasted chicken would work well too.
  • Add some sweetness. I love adding a bit of pineapple to my pizzas! It’s a great way to balance the salt and fat.
  • Make it vegetarian by skipping the meat and adding mushrooms, peppers, onions, tomatoes, or olives.

  • When making your English muffin pizza gluten-free, start with a tablespoon of sauce per half. The holes in the muffins will fill up with sauce quickly so if you use too much, it may make them soggy.
  • Make these simple mini pizzas ahead of time. Assemble the pizzas then refrigerate until you are ready to bake them.
  • Save cleanup time by placing the pizzas on parchment paper or a foil-covered baking sheet before baking.
