My six year old's favorite lunch for me to pack him is an English Muffin pizza. Its just a whole grain muffin, pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese and he absolutely loves it. Then one day while staring into the fridge pondering what to have for lunch myself, I had an epiphany! I could make a gourmet mini pizza just for me. While I do love a pizza loaded with sauce, cheese and maybe some eggplant, I also have become a fan of a white pizza topped with broccoli and garlic. Oh so yummy. So I threw one together myself for a quick and healthy lunch and it was quite yummy.
Broccoli & Garlic Mini White Pizza Recipe
whole grain English Muffin
shredded mozzarella cheese
fresh garlic, finely chopped
leftover, cooked broccoli, chopped
1. Split and lightly toast your English Muffin.
2. Finely chop some fresh garlic.
3. Sprinkle a thin layer of mozzarella over the English Muffin. Add broccoli, a generous amount of chhese and top with garlic.
Place in toaster oven or regular oven and broil until cheese is completely melted.
Gather your four ingredients: English Muffin, mozzarella cheese, broccoli and garlic. I am not a fan of frozen broccoli but you certainly can use that (thawed) if you prefer.
Lightly toast the English Muffin. This will help to give it a nice crunch.
While that is toasting, finely chop your garlic. I started with the slice of garlic on the left and chopped till I got to the size on the right. Don't ask for a measurement, I don't have one.
Add a thin layer of cheese to the English Muffin.
Place the desired amount of broccoli on top of the cheese. I packed mine with as much broccoli as I could fit.
Pile on some more cheese. Add more than you think you should because when it melts down it seems like it is less.
The last thing I add is the garlic. I like for it to be on top so its get a little toasted by the broiler.
Place the mini pizzas in the oven or toaster oven on broil until the cheese is completely melted. Let cool for a few minutes before biting into this healthy and yummy snack or lunch!
