Healthier Mini Snack Pizzas

Mini Snack Pizzas are the perfect Do-It-Yourself after school snack for your child! Let your kids make them on their own, or enjoy making them together as a fun parent/child activity. Using 100% Wholewheat English Muffins, low-fat or part skim shredded mozzarella, and lean turkey pepperoni, these mini pizzas prove to be a healthy version of your child's favorite snack. Pizza.

Mini Snack Pizzas are great for kids, but there is nothing saying you cannot eat them yourself either! Lazy afternoon? Bachelor pad meal? Midnight munchies? These have satisfied me on more than one occasion.
