Recipe ReDux: Pizza Party!

Things have been busy - I've launched my own private practice, I'm supervising (awesome!) interns, I continue to teach at a community college and I am trying to make room for fun and balance amongst the competing demands.

I am also working on minimizing the processed foods in my day to day diet and to focus on "real" food. I created a 21-Days of Real Food Challenge that empowers participants to weed the non-foods out of their diet as well.

Finally - I want to learn to eat (and love) small fishes like sardines - they're healthy, they're sustainable and they're affordable. But I don't know what to do with them!

This challenge snuck up on me. I would have loved to have created a whole wheat crust from scratch and wowed everyone with the beautiful photography and inspired them to create their own at home. And then I realized - I'm not the only one who is busy!

How can I make a pizza that meets my real food guidelines, tastes good, and is ready fast? I use an Ezekiel brand English muffin and have everything ready in a flash! Sardines are available packed in tomato sauce and flavored with garlic. Perfect for pizza!

Real Food English Muffin Pizza (in a flash!)
  • 1 Ezekial Brand English Muffin (found in the freezer)
  • Half of 1 small can sardines in tomato sauce
  • grated cheese - I used sharp cheddar
  • pinch dried basil
  1.  Preheat oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Thaw and split English muffin.  Spread small pieces of sardines onto each muffin half and drizzle with tomato sauce. 
  3. Sprinkle with grated cheese and dried basil. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until hot and bubbly!


  1. These look so healthy and filling! Great addition to the Recipe Redux pizza line up!

  2. First off, love the new look of your blog (and your tagline!) I started to like sardines when I visited Norway and now being back, haven't eaten them since. On a pizza sounds like a good place to start :)

  3. My kids love English Muffin pizzas!

  4. I used to make grilled sardine sandwiches just like this - it's the only way that I was ever able to get used to the flavour of sardines.
