Teen-Friendly Recipes: Pizza Bagels

by Patti Chadwick

I don't know about your teenagers, but mine love Bagel Bites, which are basically tiny little bagels with pizza toppings on them. They are not only tasty, they are expensive! Try this inexpensive alternative.
To save even more money, you can use the store brand bagels, but we find Lenders are the best quality. You can use regular size bagels, or buy a bag of "bagelettes".

Pizza Bagels

  • 1 pk Lenders Bagels
  • 1 cup of your favorite tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 lb. pepperoni in a chunk

Turn oven on Broil. Lightly toast bagels in toaster and set face up on a cookie sheet. Cut (do not slice) pepperoni into small chunks. Spread 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce on bagel. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and top with pepperoni. Put under broiler until cheese melts, about 1 minute. Serve warm.
