Every Friday in this house for many years, we eat pizza! Now Friday has changed over the years. It started with a slumber party in the living room, complete with mattressed dragged into the living room for all three kids. Next we stopped the slumber party, but we continued watching a movie and eating pizza every Friday.
As the kids got older, I switched it up even more and now we just eat pizza. The teens can eat in their room if they want on Fridays or they can stay at the table with me. While our Friday ritual has adapted with the aging of the kids, we still enjoy our Pizza Friday event!
Most recently I decided to switch it up and make English muffin pizzas. We had a variety of options and while the middle kid decided he doesn’t like English muffin pizzas made with love for some reason, the youngest kiddo and I enjoyed them very much.
If you’re looking to switch things up for pizza night at home, then you may consider trying these homemade English muffin pizzas, too!

How do you make a fast pizza?
The best way to make fast pizza is to use my English muffin pizza recipe. You toast each English muffin, gather the ingredients, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and within 10 minutes you’ll have a delicious pizza to eat.
English muffin pizzas are one of my favorite budget family meals. This is one of those meals I used to make when I was home alone with my little sister back in the day. They’re delicious! You can put so many differen toppings on these and enjoy a delightful mini pizza anytime you want!
Tips for Hosting Family Pizza Night
You can scroll down to see the recipe. I want to share some tips for those out there reading this for a family pizza night idea to have some ideas of various ways I’ve hosted pizza night in the past.
You see, my kids are teens and one is an adult now, but that doesn’t mean I can’t make life fun or share some of our old school favorite ideas for pizza night!
Get All The Toppings
I typically make 12 to 24 English muffin pizzas because you just never know how many the family will eat. I was able to nab a 99 cents clearance package of English muffin pizzas the night I made these. You’ll want as many toppings as possible so the kids can pick and choose their toppings.
Get The Kids Involved
I’m all about getting the kids involved with various activities around the home. For example, I would probably print this recipe and make the youngest kid read the ingredients as I ran around the kitchen gathering them. This helps him practice some reading and learn about the various measurements of ingredients, depending on the recipe.
