Will the English Muffin Be Soggy?

This is a great question. You’re wondering, won’t the pizza sauce make the English muffin mushy? Fear not, my pizza making companion. If you simply toast your English muffin before putting the pizza sauce on, it will provide a protective barrier. Because no one wants soggy pizza!!

Can I Freeze English Muffin Pizza?

Yes! English Muffins Pizzas are freezer friendly! This is one of those freezer meals that you might be surprised by.

We especially love them because they can be frozen individually, can be baked straight from frozen, and are a great way to use up leftover ingredients.

To Freeze For Later: Prepare as directed, but do not bake. Flash freeze on the baking sheet until completely frozen, 1 to 2 hours. Place in an airtight freezer container or bag, separating layers with parchment paper.

Prepare From Frozen: In a preheated 375°F oven, bake from frozen for 13 to 15 minutes. No thawing necessary!

    Can these be baked first, then frozen? I don’t have time to bake in the morning. i.e. can they be thawed in the fridge overnight or taken out in the morning?

      Yes, you can freeze them fully cooked. Then, I think your best bet would be to thaw overnight in the fridge and then warm in the microwave for a quick warm-up.
