Monday Munchies — Cooking in the Truck: Mini English Muffin Pizzas

We kicked off Workout Wednesday a few weeks ago, and now we’re proud to present our newest Healthy Trucker series — Monday Munchies! Each Monday, we’ll be featuring a new snack or recipe that’s easy to make in the comfort of your own truck. Today, we’re starting off which an easy but delicious English muffin pizza recipe!

Watch the video below to learn how to make this delicious snack.

Ingredients:

  • English muffins
  • Pizza sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Veggies of your choice (optional)

Directions:

Cooking in the truck - English muffin pizza

Cut your English muffin in half. Spread tomato sauce on both halves of the English muffin and top with 1/8 cup shredded mozzarella cheese and any desired veggies. Bake in a toaster oven until cheese is bubbly and melty. Let cool a bit, and enjoy!

See? Now wasn’t that easy? And it’s relatively healthy for pizza at just 95 calories, 5 grams of protein, and 2.5 grams of fat. If you don’t have a toaster oven in your truck, you could always heat the muffin using a regular, conventional toaster (some truck stops will even let you use their toasters to toast your own bread or English muffins) and top with sauce, cheese, and veggies after.
