The Tiniest (and Yummiest) Pizzas on The Planet
17 December 28, 2009
The quest for the quickest (and healthiest) pizza continues! One dedicated Snack-Girl reader, Theresa, sent me her solution for a pizza makeover after I posted English Muffin Pizza.
My family and I recently tried these (English Muffin Pizzas). They were good, but a little soggy with the tomato sauce going on the muffin before broiling. Anyhow, we decided to go more crunchy! We took the Triscuit crackers (I like the cracked pepper, the rest of the family does the reduced fat), then add the sauce and LF cheese, then microwave until cheese it melted. Many "mini pizzas", VERY quick, low calorie and tasty! Just food for thought. :)
I think these are a GREAT idea. I reviewed Triscuits, and I think they are very healthy for a packaged snack. They include just wheat, oil, and salt for ingredients.
I love these because they are bite-sized. They ARE much crunchier, and so easy to make. These would make a great party snack.
One caveat, they did not taste delicious cold. I would serve these as soon as possible out of the oven. I used my broiler, but Theresa used her microwave. Give it a try!
