HOW TO MAKE PIZZA BAGELS
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. To make a pizza bagel, start out by cutting a bagel in half. My daughter used a butter knife just to be safe.
Spoon on some tomato sauce. How much sauce will depend on how saucy you like your pizza. We like to cover ours with a thick layer of sauce.
Once your bagel is sufficiently sauced, it is time to sprinkle on some shredded mozzarella cheese.
Next, add on the pepperoni. I find that 3 slices per bagel half work well. If your kids find pepperoni too spicy, feel free to leave it off. You can also get creative here. Maybe your kids like peppers or onions or olives. Whatever toppings they like on pizza, you can add to a pizza bagel.

In a 375 degree toaster over, bake the pizza bagels for 10 minutes, or until the cheese gets gooey and the pepperoni starts to get crisp.
Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. These 4 ingredient pizza bagels make a great quick lunch option for kids or a tasty snack.
