Bagel Pizzas

Bagel pizzas are made at my home now and then as they are my daughter's favorite snack item. They taste yummy and can be a quick alternative to the traditional pizza, especially when one is in no mood or have time/patience to prepare a pizza starting from scratch. Most of the kids love these and so they can be a great after-school treat. These take hardly any time to prepare and are quite easy to put together. Preparing these impromptu pizzas can be a great way to involve younger kids in kitchen. They get to feel all responsible by choosing their own toppings and preparing the bagels for baking.  
When I thought of making these bagel pizzas a few days back, my daughter took over the prep work. As expected, she decided that she would go with cheesy bagel pizzas for herself. However when I was topping the other batch of bagels with onion, olives and green peppers, she realized that she was missing her favorite olives and decided to add some on her cheese bagels. Below are the general directions for preparing these quick bites.
 
Ingredients:
Bagels
Pizza sauce / spaghetti sauce as needed
Shredded mozzarella cheese as needed
Desired vegetable toppings (optional.) 
Any pizza seasoning (optional) 

Method:
* Preheat the oven to 425 deg F / 220 deg C. Line a baking sheet with a parchment paper / aluminum foil.
* Slice the bagels crosswise. Arrange the bagel halves, cut side up 
on a baking sheet.
 
 * Spread a thin layer of sauce. Top with cheese and any vegetables if are using. Sprinkle the seasoning if using and place the baking sheet in the oven.
* Bake for about 8 - 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and start to brown.
