Healthy, Cheap, and Kid-Friendly Pizza? Yes, Yes, and Yes!

If you’re crazy about pizza like I am, but can’t justify eating it as much as you’d like, this is a great recipe for you.

I used 100% whole wheat English muffins, lots of fresh vegetables, and a tablespoon or so of cheese on each mini pizza.

Considering each English muffin half had 60 calories, the shredded cheese about 40 calories, and the rest of the ingredients were vegetables or vegetable-based, I’m guessing each pizza had about 150 calories. This is not scientific, but it’s my best guess.

Besides being healthy, these pizzas are also super cheap. Depending on your toppings, it’s easy to keep each of these pizzas under $1.00 to make. 

These pizzas are also kid-friendly. Have your children create their own pizzas, and get creative with the toppings.
