English Muffin Caprese Pizzas (Easy Lunch or Dinner Idea)

English Muffin Caprese Pizzas Hip2Ssve

English muffins are a great foundation for an easy pizza (I love that English Muffins can easily be frozen to always have on hand!). Use different varieties of leftover cheese, sauces, meats, and veggies from the fridge for a super easy and delicious meal or snack. This Caprese version is just like the popular salad, except melted to perfection into a pizza.

English Muffin Caprese Pizzas


2 English muffins
4 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
handful of small salad tomatoes, sliced
4 fresh basil leaves sliced
drizzle of olive oil
drizzle of balsamic vinegar
finish with salt/pepper and ground red pepper flakes if desired

baked English muffin pizzas


Open English muffins and place on top of a baking sheet. Top with cheese, tomatoes, and basil. Drizzle with small amount of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Bake in the conventional oven or toaster oven at 375 degrees for about 1o minutes or until slightly brown. Top with a little salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes if desired. (Serves two)

These are so good! I’ve also made a whole pizza this way and it’s fantastic. I think sun dried tomatoes and olives would be yummy too. I love easy no-fuss meals like this and hope you do too. 🙂

    I might drizzle pesto over this instead of just using basil. What a fun idea! I use English muffins for a make your own pizza night for my boys, and it’s always a blast!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes! Yum

  6. Autumn

    Pita bread works just as good!

    • DS

      i use pita breads all the time to make personal size pizzas..

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Good idea!

  7. jami

    I think some feta would go yummy with this too!

  8. Karen229

    Thanks, Lina! These will make for a quick dinner prep. They look yummy!!!!

    We lived on English muffin pizzas growing up.

    • RB

      Brings back fond memories of making English muffin pizzas in the toaster oven at my grandparents’ house (with white American cheese and tomato paste). What a fancy update, Lina!

    Yum I need to try this. Your holiday ham sandwich recipe was awesome. I have been making tuna melts for years this way by mixing tuna with mayo, pickle, and red onion chopped up and putting it on the muffins with some melted cheese on top and I often add seasoning like garlic powder or the Trader Joe’s seasoning as well. Too yummy!

    We love these when we go camping! I love also using naan bread for pizzas you can get super cheap at Aldi. It is also very delicious with sliced apple, arugula (lightly tossed in a little olive oil-honey-and dijon mustard),and goat cheese.

    one tip…toast the english muffin first!

    • briannajwilliams

      I agree!!!

      But oh my goodness – I am so hungry and this looks SOOOO good 🙂

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Good tip!

  13. Jen

    Yummy! I make english muffin pizzas and use tomatoe paste (season a bit) and cheese. The kids like to make faces with the toppings. So much fun. They are really yummy cold and great for the kids school lunches or snack.

  14. Jennifer

    Perfect ” kid size” pizzas! I love this for a school night. After all the heavy holiday cooking I just want easy, quick, and light meals for through the week, thanks Lina!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes and i agree! Thanks Jennifer!

    My husband makes a dessert by putting peanut butter, cinnamon and sugar on English muffins.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh yum

    • RB

      Even though I don’t much care for peanut butter, the Planter’s Nut-rition peanut butter was amazing! (We tried the one with the granola and raisins and cinnamon in it when they first came out and were free with RR @Walgreens, but it’s a smaller jar and higher price–not particularly affordable–so I tried to recreate it at home.)

  16. Cynthianne

    OH LINA!! I have been waiting for EVER for you to be featured again! I just adore your recipes. Collin needs to have you on more.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh thanks for your kindness! I’m working on lots of new content coming soon! 🙂

  17. Emilie

    I love your recipes!! Thank you!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks Emilie!

  18. Tammy

    Thank you. I’m going to use this with bagels tonight.

  19. Aryanna

    That looks gourmet and so appetizing. Thanks for sharing.

    I bake my English muffin pizzas in the toaster oven. Why heat up the entire oven, when the toaster oven is warm and ready in minutes?!?! My second batch usually only needs 5 minutes to warm and melt the cheese.
    I usually use spaghetti sauce to make my “pizza-bread” because there’s usually an open jar in the fridge and it’s already well seasoned! My kids LOVE “pizza bread” so much they’ll eat 2-3 times as much for lunch when it’s on the menu (as compared with a regular sandwich).

  21. Chelsie

    I do something very similar when I crave bruschetta just add a little minced garlic….sooo yummy, easy and quick.

  22. Diane

    We love this try making them with nutella, marshmallo and banana.

  23. Arch

    this recipe turned out just awesome! sooo yumm!
    Thank you!

  24. Jessica

    Oh my gosh, Lina. I officially love everything you come up with. We made these last night for dinner and they were a HUGE hit. Thank you for sharing!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh hooray, love outcomes like that! Thanks for sharing.
