This meal came about because when I went grocery shopping this weekend, I was more focused on Thanksgiving supplies than stuff for meals this week. In other words, I didn’t have any meat to put in a meal other than a packet of pepperoni that I’d picked up last week because I made the mistake of shopping when hungry.
I didn’t feel like making pizza dough so I decided to use the bagels that I’d picked up to make a fun dinner.
I started with the two bagels I had left: poppyseed and egg.
Sliced them each in half.
And toasted them for a few minutes. I wanted them to crisp up a little bit before putting the sauce on.
While they were toasting, gathered my other three ingredients: Classico pizza sauce, pepperoni, and cheese. I didn’t have mozzarella, so I used Mexican blend.
Bagels are toasted!
Here’s the sauce:
And the cheese…
I decided to season them garlic powder…
And some crushed red pepper flakes.
Finally, some pepperoni.
Pop them in the toaster oven, which I had set to 400, and let them bake for a while.
Simple as that.
Not too healthy, of course, but they were damn yummy. Today, that’s all I cared about.
