Pizza Bagels

On nights that I don't really feel like cooking, or have had an extremely busy day at work, I turn pizza bagels for dinner. It is so easy, and everyone loves them.
 
Start by breaking apart your bagels and placing them on a stone or a baking sheet lined with tin foil.
 
Spread sauce on each half of the bagel.  
I place a pepperoni over the hole of the bagel. This helps stop the cheese from falling through.
 

This dinner also helps encourage cooking with your kids. Each kid can make his or her own pizza very easily. Place the cheese on the bagel and then allow the kids to put their favorite toppings on their pizza. (They are more likely to eat dinner if they help prepare it.)
Bake the pizza bagels for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.

I do the same recipe with English muffins too.

If you don't want to turn on your oven, they cook just as well in a toaster oven. Great for a quick lunch as well.
