Canadian Bacon and Pineapple Mini Pizzas

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 2 pizzas)
With preshredded cheese, pineapple tidbits, and prepared pizza sauce, the only thing adults need to be responsible for is chopping the bacon and baking the pizzas. For a pepperoni pizza variation that requires no chopping, use 8 ounces miniature pepperoni slices in place of the Canadian bacon and pineapple.

Ingredients

  • 6 whole-wheat English muffins, split and toasted
  • 3/4 cup bottled pizza sauce
  • 1 (8-ounce) can pineapple tidbits in juice, drained
  • 6 (1/2-ounce) slices Canadian bacon, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) preshredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
