I enjoyed this English Muffin Hawaiian Pizza for lunch recently. I have to say it was the most fun and tasty lunch I had made for myself in a while.
I’ve loved English muffin pizzas since I was a kid. Back then we never made anything as fancy as an English muffin Hawaiian pizza. We mostly ate them plain, with a little tomato sauce and mozzarella.
Roberta hit rock bottom at 48 years old. She weighed 171 lbs. at 5'1". She suffered from back pain, thyroid problems and adrenal issues. Yet as you can see it’s all behind her now. And she feels and looks like a woman half her age!... Following Eat Stop Eat gave Roberta the freedom she needed. It allowed her body to naturally find its own weight loss rhythm. And the results are stunning!
(My mom, sister and brother love to remind me of the night I ate 13 of them for supper. And I remind them that I didn’t get fat by eating small. I was a big girl with a big appetite back then.)
I got the idea for this English Muffin Hawaiian Pizza from Hungry Girl, Lisa Lillien. It’s the first recipe in her cookbook, Hungry Girl 1-2-3: The Easiest, Most Delicious, Guilt-Free Recipes on the Planet.
Needless to say, the description of this English Muffin Hawaiian Pizza with sauce, cheese, ham and pineapple was enough to get me excited. It’s quick and easy too. All you need is about 5 minutes to put it together and another 8 to 10 minutes to let it bake.
Skinny on Hungry Girl’s English Muffin Hawaiian Pizza
I adapted the recipe slightly to work with what I had on hand. I substituted tomato sauce with a little Italian seasoning mixed in for the low-fat marinara. Replaced pineapple tidbits for the pineapple ring. And shredded part-skim mozzarella for the string cheese, which is really the same thing, isn’t it?
Served with a tossed green salad, this made an easy, healthy and delicious lunch. The entire recipe has just 230 calories and *6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, 6 SmartPoints. Enjoy!
- 2 tablespoons marinara sauce
- 1 light whole-wheat English muffin, split in half
- 2 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 slices deli ham, chopped
- 2 tablespoons canned pineapple tidbits, well drained
- 1 tablespoon chopped red onion
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. (I used the toaster oven). Line a baking pan with foil and spray the foil lightly with cooking spray.
- Toast the english muffin lightly. Remove from the oven and spread 1 tablespoon sauce on each muffin half. Place the muffin halves on your prepared baking pan. Distribute the cheese, ham, pineapple, and onion evenly over the muffin halves. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until heated through.
