Mini bagel pizzas

Another crowd pleaser and kid friendly dish for any party or for a quick snack at home is this very simple and easy dish known as Mini bagel pizzas.

Which kid doesn't like pizza right!? Best of all, you can have any topping your kid wishes. I think this dish is too good when you want to involve the kids in cooking but don't want to deal with a whole lot of mess of the dough and flour.

These bake quickly and so the kid's don't have to wait to a long time for their snack either. since the bagels are already cooked and it only takes a couple of minutes for the cheese to melt on the top, it can be made in a jiffy!

These are perfect to make on very tiny bagels to the very large ones. But the mini bagels or the medium sized ones are better for the kid's to handle, so I prefer them. You do find these in frozen section of the grocery store, but they are easy and quick to make so why go for the packaged one?

I put whatever topping my kid's like at the point of time and this time they wanted only cheese, so that's what they got!

I used three bagels as a snack, you can use how many ever as you wish!


3 mini bagels
1/2 cup of cheese
1/2 cup of Ragu or marinara sauce


Preheat broiler to high.
Halve the bagel and spread the marinara sauce on both sides of the bagel.
Sprinkle cheese along with any other toppings you wish.
Put under broiler for 3-4 minutes or until the cheese melts.
Remove and serve immediately after a minute of cool down or they will be very hot!!

  18. Whether simple or finely-topped pizza bagels, kids would always appreciate their snacks. Since the kids at my parents’ house are not those who go crazy when you call for a break, this simple but surely tasty recipe will get them to sit still. I would love to see them just sit on the porch and munch on these goodies than have them mess around in my room. So, thank you so much for a kid-relaxing meal!
