15-Minute Mini Pizza Bagels + How To Make Into A Freezer Meal

It’s no surprise that we love Pizza in our family.  Since we’re all stuck at home, I’ve found myself more in ‘summer mode’, when it comes to meals, which, for me means, quick and easy meals.  And on the top of that quick and easy meal list are Mini Pizza Bagels.  From start to finish, these Mini Pizza Bagels take about 15 minutes, and are a great recipe for kids to make all by themselves.

Homemade Mini Pizza Bagels couldn’t be easier to make.  They can be made for just one person or for a crowd, and taste so much better than the ones you find pre-made in the freezer section.  For this recipe, I used some homemade leftover Spaghetti Sauce that I had in the fridge in place of traditional pizza sauce.  It was a great way to use up the last of my Spaghetti Sauce, and I didn’t need to spend extra money on a jar of pizza sauce to make this recipe.  I made traditional Pepperoni Pizza Bagels for this post.  Add your favorite pizza toppings, and make each Mini Pizza Bagel individualized with everyones favorite toppings.  Just be sure to not put too much on top, or the bagels will get a little soggy, and not quite cook properly.

I love making homemade pizza, in any form I can make it in.  Not only does making pizza at home save you money, but there is just something about making pizza together as a family that sparks joy in my heart.  Pizza is something that we all love, and it’s a fun way to spend the night together.  Homemade Mini Pizza Bagels are one of the best lunches/snacks/dinners that kids can help prepare.  It also makes one of the best sleepover foods ever…when we’re allowed to do that again.

How To Make Mini Pizza Bagels

Gather Ingredients & Equipment 
Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper, and gather your ingredients.

Preheat Oven
While oven is preheating, split mini bagels, and toast them for 5 minutes.  Slightly toasting the bagels first helps make sure that they aren’t soggy and mushy.

Top Bagels
Start with sauce, and spread about ½ – 1 tbsp pizza sauce on each toasted bagel half.  Top with a blend of shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese, and your favorite pizza toppings.

Cook
Bake Mini Pizza Bagels for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.  Remove from oven, and serve with more freshly grated parmesan cheese, if desired.

To Cook From Frozen
