I have used english muffins for years now as a base for mini pizzas, they're great for parties, kids and adults love them too! Toppings I have used include: pepperoni, cooked bacon, tuna, peppers, red onions, mushrooms, sweetcorn, tomatoes and grated cheddar. This is a brilliant idea, I can recommend them thoroughly!
