Pizza Bagels Recipe
Turn this throwback after-school snack into a quick and easy meal.
Show Nutrition INGREDIENTS 2 bagels 2 teaspoons olive oil 1/2 cup store-bought or homemade pizza or marinara sauce (see Recipe Notes) 1 1/2 cups shredded low-moisture mozzarella cheese (about 6 ounces) Optional toppings: Pepperoni Sliced olives Mushrooms Sliced or diced onions Diced tomatoes Optional garnishes: Fresh basil leaves Grated Parmesan cheese Red pepper flakes
INSTRUCTIONS Arrange a rack at the top of the oven and heat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Split 2 bagels and place cut-side up on the baking sheet. Brush with 2 teaspoons olive oil. Bake until golden-brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and switch the oven to broil. Spread 2 tablespoons pizza or marinara sauce on each bagel half, spreading to the very edges. Top each bagel half with a heaping 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese. Add toppings as desired. Return the baking sheet to the oven and broil until the cheese is melted and browned in spots, 2 to 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil, grated Parmesan cheese, and/or red pepper flakes if desired. RECIPE NOTES Homemade pizza sauce: For a quick pizza sauce, stir together 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce, 1 grated garlic clove, 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning, and a pinch each of kosher salt and granulated sugar.
