3 Ways to Make Mini Bagel Pizza


A mini bagel pizza will never not be delicious! Though I will admit to making the same recipe every single time the boys and I whip them up. Pizza sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni and done. That’s why I love Jonathan’s take on mini bagel pizzas because he’s so creative with the ingredients. I say we all throw a pizza party and encourage the kiddos to come up with their own creation!

PREP TIME: 15 min
COOK TIME: 15 min
TOTAL TIME: 30 min


For the pepperoni

1/2 cup store-bought pizza sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup mini pepperoni
1/4 cup sliced black olives drained

For the Pesto Vegetable

1/2 cup store-bought pesto
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup sliced cherry tomatoes

For the BBQ Chicken

1/2 cup store-bought BBQ sauce
1 cup shredded Cheddar Jack cheese
1/4 cup cooked diced chicken
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup sliced scallions


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Split all of the mini bagels and arrange them on a baking sheet in a single layer.
  3. To make the pepperoni, spread 6 halves with pizza sauce and top with mozzarella. Arrange about 3 pepperoni on top of each and add a few olive slices.
  4. To make the pesto vegetable, spread 6 halves with pesto sauce and top with mozzarella. Arrange a few sliced cherry tomatoes onto each.
  5. To make the BBQ chicken, spread the remaining with bbq sauce and top with Cheddar Jack. Top with chicken, red onion and scallions.
  6. Bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.
