Sandwich Essentials: English Muffin Pizza Sandwich

Andy Anderson !


Another title for this might be: Fun Things to do with an English Muffin.

Here we are taking an English muffin, and not making a pizza, but a pizza sandwich. The ingredients are mine; however, you could add anything you like… just don’t make it too sloppy, or it will be hard to eat.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Sandwich Essentials: English Muffin Pizza Sandwich


  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. Add the Italian sausage to a sauté pan over medium heat.
  4. Cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until cooked through.
  5. Remove from pan, drain on paper towels, and reserve.
  6. Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 425f (220c).
  7. Toast the bun, and lay the two pieces on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  8. Add the tomato sauce to the bottom half.
  9. Add the Italian sausage.
  10. Add the mozzarella cheese.
  11. Add the pepperoni.
  12. Add the other cheese to the top half.
  13. Chef’s Note: I also added a slice of Canadian bacon to mine. Can you say: Meat Lovers.
  14. Slide into the oven, and bake until the cheese melts, and begins to bubble.
  15. Add the lettuce, and the tomato slice.
  16. Chef’s Tip: A lot of things are playing out when we eat our food: smells, textures, flavors, and even temperature. You might ask why I didn’t cook the tomato slice with the sandwich, and the answer is that I wanted layers of flavor, and layers of temperature. Things as simple as varying the temperature of your combined ingredients, can make or break a recipe.
  18. Cut in half and serve while nice and toasty warm. Enjoy.
  19. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
