Mini Muffin Pizzas

You can use whatever toppings your child likes for these mini pizzas. Try ham and pineapple, tuna and corn, or cherry tomato and pepperoni. You can also make simple pizzas by spreading the muffins with ketchup, arranging sliced cherry tomatoes on top, covering with grated Cheddar cheese, and cooking under a broiler until lightly golden.
