Fast Summer English Muffin Pizza and More

Updated on June 19, 2014

We've found this to be a really delicious simple lunch - with the added salad and drink of choice

My wife has hit on a really neat little meal that we have had several times now this summer - a summer menu anyone can enjoy. We use the basic recipe from allrecipes.com - but you can easily modify it with ingredients and other variations to fit your mood! Enjoy! ;-)

I took this photo one day when enjoyed this particular summer menu - please excuse my crooked cutting. I like quarters - my wife prefers halves. What do you prefer?

The original recipe calls for 16 slices of pepperoni sausage. We used our favorite ham lunch meal diced into small pieces. That is what is shown in the photos.

In the photo here, we also had a shredded lettuce salad topped with shredded carrots - our favorite, with Thousand Island dressing. I would add olives. What would you add? Both the little pizza and the salad are easily customized, as you can see. Today, when we had it again, we just prepared on muffin (two sides) apiece and it was plenty with the salad. I took the photos.

      This made me laugh because once when my wife was pregnant I thought of this idea, and she kept asking me to make it over and over.
