extraordinary pizza buns

Around my house pizza is a basic part of the food pyramid.

One of the essential food groups.

This is an unusual pizza recipe, but is a favorite of my family’s…extraordinary pizza buns.

This is a recipe I married into.

It is my mother-in-laws yummy recipe which is unlike anything else I have ever tasted.

Holly’s Mother-in-law’s Extraordinary Pizza Buns:

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 3 cans (small) Tomato Paste
  • 1 T Soy Sauce
  • 1 T Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 T Mustard
  • 1/2 t oregano
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 cans (small) chopped black olives – drained
  • 3 bags of English Muffin 6 packs

microwaved onions

First: Microwave the butter and onions until the onion is clear (it takes me about 5-7 minutes usually) then Cuisinart the mixture – totally a verb.

Meanwhile: Combine all the other ingredients in a large bowl and stir together.   Add the onion and butter mixture when completed.

Toast the English muffins slightly.

Spread a 1/2 inch deep layer of the mixture onto each English muffin.

Bake at 350 until warm and toasty – usually about 10 to 12 minutes.

I make up what we will eat for each meal and keep the remaining mixture in the fridge for later use…

  1. That looks delicious and easy. Question: seems like a whole lotta onion. Too much for young boys or does it really blend once it’s cooked and Cuisinarted?

  2. Sounds really good. We love pizza, too (having it tonight, in fact!) and I have some English Muffin Pizza recipes on my site.

  3. I made a Pioneer Woman recipe tonight and it was so good I felt the need to share it with the world (or my 126 followers and my Mom)

    🙂 This looks GOOD!

  4. You had me at “One stick of butter” 🙂

  5. Your pizza extravaganza is great! I will be checking some of those out.

  6. You could use a smaller onion, but what has the strongest and what I consider least kid friendly taste is the worchestershire sauce. My kids love it, but I could see where that might be a problem. If trying it for the first time you could go light on that and the onion.

  7. I’m infamously a wreck in the kitchen. I once melted a spatula on top of pierogies and didn’t even realize it until my son almost ate it.

    But this appears to be something even I can with minimal screw-ups. Thanks for sharing!
