Cheesy Canadian Bacon Pizza

Cheesy Canadian Bacon Pizza

Lunch is one of the hardest meals in my day.  I work full time and with two kids, making lunch for myself before I leave for work can be a challenge.  I often end up with frozen box dinners grabbed as I walk out the door.  After a busy morning at work and hating the taste of box dinners, it can be so tempting to run out to the drive thru – just this once — every single day.  These single serving sized pizzas are individually-wrapped and can be personalized with different toppings to make everyone’s favorite pizza.  Add mushrooms, olives, onions, or peppers for extra vegetables.

Preheat oven to 350.  In a small bowl, combine pizza sauce and italian seasoning.  Cover each English muffin half with a thin layer of pizza sauce.  Then, layer Canadian bacon and cheese on top of the pizza sauce.  Cook for 7-9 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.
 

Freezing Directions:

Follow directions above to bake pizza.  Remove from oven and allow to cool.  Once cool, wrap each muffin half with plastic wrap.  Place in freezer bag, label, and freeze.  To serve: reheat in microwave for 1 minute.  For crispier crust, reheat in oven at 300 for 5-7 minutes.

  1. You can really freeze these already baked and reheat in the microwave? What toppings would reheat well? I bet pineapple or green peppers might not work well? But maybe they do. May have to try this, but not sure.

      Hi Skirnir, yes, they reheat in the microwave great from frozen. I did mine with both pepperoni and canadian bacon and they were wonderful. Green bell pepper is one of the easiest things to freeze and pineapple should freeze well too. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

    Reheated in the microwave and they were a bit soggy. Found that toasting the muffins before topping and going a tad bit lighter on the sauce helped the second time we made these. As for reheating in the oven we increased the temp since our oven tends to run a bit lower. Still had to increase more until the internal thermometer we have in the oven said 350 and bake longer to heat completely through.

  3. Note – if you forget to thaw the Canadian Bacon, regular bacon works just as well. :-) Yummy!
