Quick & Easy Pizza Bagels for Kids

Even the kids can get involved when making Pizza Bagels. They are an easy recipe for dinner, or even just for a snack.

This is a long favorite of mine. It is something my mom made for us kids when we were little. It was easy, cheap, filling, plus it was something we could all do.

There is just something so great about making your own food when you’re little.

The best part is, you could even make mini pizza bagels! Regardless the size, these homemade pizza bagels are amazing.
