Face the Facts, English Muffin Pizzas are great

If you are too fancy for the American- Italian classic, the English Muffin Pizza then I don't think we have anything else to discus. Because we are no longer friends. What information about something that seems pretty basic could I pass onto you? Plenty. We've all had crapy mini pizzas. Soggy muffin, not that melted cheese, somehow the center is still cold. Follow along and you'll have an English Muffin Pizza that tastes like pizza
-English Muffins
-Shredded Mozzarella cheese
-Jar of pizza sauce
-grated parmesan cheese
-Peperoni slices
-Italian seasoning

Slice the English muffins. You get a flat surface and a uniform cut so they all cook evenly. If you don't have a good bread knife invest in one.
Set your oven to broil and move the rack to the top shelf. My oven has a low and hi setting for broil. Lo is the best choice. Toast the muffins bare first, this prevents cold centers and crappy textured crusts.
Take them out once they are golden brown. I thought this photo came out nice
Wait for the muffins to cool so you can handle them easy. Enjoy this time to yourself, have a chocolate milk while you wait.
This is the Italian seasoning I have, any kind you have is fine.
Once they are cool, sauce them
Add the cheese, enough to cover but not too much that it prevents the cheese from browning
Looks good, at this point I put the Italian seasoning on them and the grated Parmesan cheese. It's the little things that make a cheap meal a classy meal I say
add the pepperoni, I just did every other one. Arrange them back on the cookie sheet and return them to the oven set on Lo broil
Don't go too far from the oven, these puppies will burn very quick if you are not paying attention. Here they are once they turned golden, look at them. They're lovely. They even look like a mini pizzas, instead of some sauce and cheese bomb on a muffin
The end result, they pair great with beer and zombie movies
