Pizza Bagels

Lately, I've been running a bit low on food in the house. I'm trying to hold out until Matt comes back, that way we can go grocery shopping before our friend, Matt R. comes to visit for 10 days. I want to make sure we have enough food for all of us.  

Today I was craving something warm since for some reason I've been sniffling and sneezing like crazy. I don't know what it is, but after my run today I just can't stop sneezing. Within the past 2 hours, I've sneezed 12 times. Yes, I counted ha ha. Anyways, that's not the point to this story. The point is, I remember when I was younger, my mom use to make some delicious pizza bagels. I loved them. Well, I decided that's what I was going to have for lunch since I had bagels, mozzarella cheese, and sauce on hand.
They came out delicious. If you have never made them before, well maybe you should give it at try. So, if you want to try, here is how:

What you will need:
Mozzarella Cheese
Bagels (you can use mini bagels or the larger bagels. In my case, I used the larger ones)
Pizza or spaghetti sauce

                                                   First, preheat oven to 375*. 
 While the oven is preheating, you can go ahead and start making your pizza bagels. I like to put mine in the toaster for about a minute, just to get it a little bit crispy. I think they turn out better so it's not too doughy, but you don't necessarily have to do this step. So, after the bagel is out of the toaster, lay it on a cookie tray. Start by putting sauce on the bagel. 

I just scooped the sauce out with a spoon and then spread it all across the bagel. After I had sauce on both bagels, I sprinkled some Mozzarella cheese around. You can use a lot or a little, depending on how cheesy you want your pizza bagel.
Then, I put it in the oven for 10 minutes. Once the 10 minutes were up, I took it out of the oven and let it sit on the tray for 2 minutes before I took them off and put them on a plate. Once you think it's cooled off enough (don't burn your mouth!) then it's time to enjoy!

Wah-La! Okay, so maybe it doesn't look perfect and pretty when it's done, but it tastes delicious.
