  • 4 bagels sliced in half
  • 1 1/4 cups pizza sauce
  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese shredded or chopped into small pieces
  • Fresh basil to garnish (optional)


  1. Place the bagel halves on a cookie sheet. Top each half with about 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce. It should be generous, not thin. Top with cheese, leaving a little sauce showing.
  2. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese is completely melted. If you bake til the longer end of the cooking time, the cheese will brown, but may be a bit drier.
  3. Remove from oven, let cool slightly, then serve immediately.
