  • Put English muffin halves cut-side down onto a baking sheet. Spread 1 teaspoon salsa over each muffin half. Divide bacon between each half and sprinkle enough cheese over the 'pizza' to just cover the sauce.

  • Bake under the broiler until the cheese is melted, 5 to 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

The fun about pizza is that it can be made however you like. You can add peppers, olives, mushrooms, or any of your favorite ingredients.

The cheese should cover all the salsa, the less of it you see the better.

This is a perfect recipe for our family quick and easy and adaptable. I added a few mushrooms for my son and kept my Hubby's as written. Using salsa couldn't be easier as we always have some on the go at our house so it is a faster option that other tomato sauces. If you have a toaster oven this is perfect under the broiler and kid friendly to make. This type of snack is the first thing I ever learned to make as a child. Still love it. Read More

This made for a really good lunch for me. I wondered how the salsa would work when it's placed on the bottom of the muffin but it soaked in just perfectly. I did add some bacon (a piece that was already cooked from the day before) but it really wasn't very necessary. The muffin salsa and cheese was perfect as it was. Thanks for lunch SgtSquishy!

These were good but I wished I had toasted it a bit first before putting on the salsa. Also 5-10 minutes is a big time frame. I left mine in for 5 but they could have come out at 4 min. I used more like 2 tsp salsa on each muffin and used regular bacon and black olives. Quick nice lunch. Read More
