English Muffin Breakfast Pizzas

English Muffin Breakfast Pizza

Adapted from a Clean Eating Magazine Recipe from Monica
Makes 1 Serving

1 English muffin, split
2 slices tomato
1 tsp olive oil
2 slices turkey bacon cut into 1” strips
20 grams shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (less than ¼ cup)
Chopped fresh basil for garnish

Preheat oven to 450. Line a small baking sheet with foil. Place English muffin halves cut-side up on the baking sheet. Top each with tomato and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle bacon over tomatoes, then top with mozzarella. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown. Sprinkle with basil.

Review: These are a favorite! They taste almost greasy with the olive oil combined with fresh mozzarella. They're best the first time around, but aren't bad on the reheat (would probably do best in a toaster oven so they would reheat more crispy!). These aren't the most filling (low protein), but they're VERY good and look pretty if you serve them to guests!
