Pizza Buns

Pizza Buns Recipe

I woke up the other night with pizza cravings, but it was too late to call for delivery and I had no frozen pizza, so I improvised, making these sort of english muffin pizzas.


1-2 english muffins or gluten-free English muffins or hamburger buns.

2-3 ripe tomatoes, cored, seeded, and quartered (there will be plenty of sauce left over)

1 tsp each. garlic salt, fresh ground pepper, rosemary, basil, and oregano.

Any meat such as sausage, bacon, pepperoni, etc. Best if it's pre-cooked. Enough to cover the buns.

2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil.

grated mozzarella cheese (2-3 Tablespoons)

Feel free to add any of your favorite pizza toppings!

I used gluten-free Kinnikinnick hamburger buns, since I am allergic to wheat, but you can use regular English muffins instead. I divided the bun into three parts (they are very thick but porous like English muffins) and toasted them.

I didn't have any tomato sauce, but I had 3 ripe tomatoes, so I seeded and chopped them, and I put them into the food processor with some spices (rosemary, basil, oregano, garlic salt, and fresh black pepper-about a teaspoon each). I processed it until it was pretty smooth (no stray seeds showing).

I spooned a little of this onto each bun and drizzled each with olive oil. I cut up some Applegate Farms organic gluten free fire roasted pepper sausage (but you can use any meat) and put that on each one, with some grated mozzarella cheese sprinkled on top. I put them in the broiler.

They were a little soggy in the middle but otherwise great. I probably put a little too much tomato sauce on them and that's why they ended up soggy.

They were delicious! What is that they say about necessity being the mother of invention? :)

Gluten free; not low carb. You can also make little mini-pizzas on rice cakes, which would make them low carb and low fat.
