English Muffin Pizzas, Recipe by Luke
1. Slice English Muffin in half and place on flat pan.
2. Spread each half with your favorite pizza sauce OR take a can of diced tomatoes or crushed tomatoes (which I always have on hand). Add it to a blender with fresh herbs like basil and oregano, and blend for a quick sauce.
3. Top with zucchini sliced into really thin rounds, or use any other toppings of your choice.
4. Next, sprinkle with parmesan cheese or any grated cheese of choice. There are many great non-dairy options that we like to use also.
5. Place in toaster oven or regular oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is toasted. Serve with a side of broccoli!

Juice of one lemon
Handful of parsley, optional

I hope you enjoy these simple recipes. It’s so easy to create healthy foods for children and to have quick healthy snacks on hand. Getting them involved creates a stronger interest for them, and they will be more likely to eat the foods you create.
