Mini Hawaiian Pizzas.... with 'copycat' Pizza Hut Pizza Sauce!


    On my journey of healthy eating, I am having some big cravings for those naughty foods I just can't resist. I am a self proclaimed Pizza-Loving-Addict! lol  Oh, how I love me a big ol' piece of ooey gooey cheesey pizza! Mmmmm   So it's had me thinking. How can I get a taste for some, without ruining my clean eating plan. Then I remembered this classic and easy way of making pizza. English Muffin style! : ) 

   I grabbed a bag of Whole Wheat ones at the store, and then thought Hawaiian Style toppings would be perfect to go on top! I also had remembered that I have an old 'Pizza Hut' copycat pizza sauce recipe that is SO GOOD. Please, please, please DONT buy those nasty little cans of pizza sauce at the store! *GAG*  Especially when you can make your own homemade version in just a couple minutes. To me, it tastes very similar to Pizza Huts. The flavor is delish! All you need is a can of tomatoe sauce, and a few seasonings, and voila, you will have delicious homemade pizza sauce!

PIZZA HUT PIZZA SAUCE
Makes 2 cups
  • 1 (15 oz) can Tomatoe Sauce
  • 2 tsp dried Oregeno
  • 1 tsp dried Marjoram
  • 1 tsp dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Garlic Salt
Mix all together in a bowl.

MINI HAWAIIAN PIZZAS
Makes 4 servings
  • 8 Whole Wheat English Muffins
  • Pizza Sauce
  • 2 cups part-skim Mozzerella cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups Pineapple tidbits
  • 2 cups Canadian Bacon or Ham, chopped


Directions:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Split english muffins in half. Place halves on top of a cookie sheet. Spread 3 tablespoons worth of pizza sauce on top. Add chopped canadian bacon and pineapple on top. Sprinkle each piece with shredded mozzerella cheese. Bake for 12 minutes or until cheese has melted.

I'm not a fan of most jarred pizza sauces so I'll have to give this one a try. It looks great!

I love making mini pizzas on English Muffins! So quick and easy.

We seriously eat pizza once a week. I'm not sure why the husband and I both don't weigh 500 lbs a piece. I guess because we usually make pizza from scratch and skip all of those preservatives from the store-bought kind. (I'm with you on the *gag*!) But we never have had a Hawaiian pizza. Your recipe looks like one we'll have to try - nice and healthy and simple!

Yum! We love english muffin pizzas here. I always love trying a new pizza sauce so I may give that pizza hut knock off a try.

Yum! I love English muffin pizzas! When I'm trying to cut calories I use the light Flat Out wraps to make individual pizzas. I'll just throw toppings on and bake for about 10 minutes. Super tasty!
