These healthy mini pizzas are easy to make and fun to serve. This recipe yields two mini pizzas, but you can multiply your ingredients and make several at a time if you need to feed a crowd.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 13 minutes

Ingredients:

    • 1 English muffin
    • 1/3 cup Marinara sauce
    • 2 slices of mozzarella cheese, sliced as broadly as possible and about 1/4-inch thick
    • Chopped olives

Preparation:

Preheat your oven's broiler.

Cut the English muffin in half, if necessary, and toast it in a toaster on a medium-low setting.

Place the two toasted English muffin halves on a baking sheet. Spread the marinara sauce on each muffin.

Cut your cheese slices with a tree-shaped cookie cutter or a cookie cutter of your choice. Place the cheese shape on top of the marinara sauce.

Sprinkle the chopped olives on top of the cheese tree, as if they are ornaments.

Place the baking sheet in the oven under the broiler. Broil for just a few minutes, watching carefully. You don't want the cheese to become so melted you don't recognize the tree shape.

Allow to cool slightly and serve.

Optional: serve the mini pizzas with yellow fruit leather cut into the shapes of stars.
