It’s a busy time of year and making dinner can sometimes be a challenge, but not with this make-ahead meal from Fareway Food Stores!

On Tuesday, December 10th, Dietitian Whitney Hemmer showed us how to make freezer-friendly English Muffin Pizzas:

INGREDIENTS

6 whole wheat English muffins split in half

¾ cup pizza sauce

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1 cup finely chopped toppings of your choice (pepperoni, sausage, peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc.)

DIRECTIONS

Preheat broiler.

Place English muffin halves (cut side up) on a baking sheet and broil for 2-3 minutes or until they begin to brown.

Remove from oven and layer with pizza sauce, cheese and toppings.

To freeze: flash freeze individual pizzas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 1-2 hours. Wrap individual pizzas in clear plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store in a large zip-top bag in the freezer.

To serve: Bake pizzas from frozen at 375°F for 13-15 minutes.
