healthy 5-minute pizza

Pizza is a huge healthy-eating challenger. Oozey-gooey stringy cheese covering crispy bread topped with toasty toppings of choice...yes please. Next time you have a big pizza craving, make a healthy 5-minute pizza instead. This is hardly even a recipe, it's completely malleable to your cravings, and even better it is actually ready within 5 minutes. Talk about instant gratification!

Ingredients (for 4 mini pizzas):
2 whole wheat english muffins
4 tbs tomato sauce
1 tbs olive oil *optional: produces the greasy component*
1/3 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella
2 tbs shredded mixed cheeses (or just some cheddar)
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 shallot, chopped (they're like mini onion rings!)

1. Lightly toast english muffins. 

2. If making a white-pizza (with no sauce), drizzle olive oil on the bottom. Or add 1 tbs tomato sauce to each half. Top with a pinch of basil & oregano.

3. Top with cheeses & toppings of choice.

4. Pop in oven and broil for 2-3 minutes, until cheese is melted.

5. Enjoy warm with oozing cheese & all of the pizza flavor in a smaller personalized portion with a much healthier twist.
