Fruit pizzas are perfect for a quick breakfast, afterschool snack, or dessert. Each mouthwatering pizza packs a nutritious punch with fiber, protein, and vitamins. 

Ingredients:

• 2 tablespoons reduced fat or fat-free cream cheese (see notes)
• 2 tablespoons sliced strawberries

Preparation: 

1. Split open the English muffin and toast the halves until lightly browned.
2. Spread cream cheese on both halves.
3. Divide the fruit between the two muffin halves and arrange on top of cream cheese.
4. These are best when served soon.

Notes:
• Use any combination of fruit for topping the pizza. Try sliced apples, pears, bananas, and more!
• No cream cheese? Try peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, or yogurt.
