For the Love of Bagels and Pizza

Last week I gave in and bought the dozen pack of bagels from Costco. Why 12 bagels for just my husband and I? Because they were so fresh and I'm a sucker for freshly baked goods. As good as they taste a cream cheese or even lightly toasted with a bit of butter, I was itching to make a pizza for lunch. So the Bagel Pizza was born.

Bagel Pizza


  • 4 or 5 mushrooms sliced
  • 4 or 5 olives, pitted
  • 2 bagels
  • few slivers of onion
  • dried oregano
  • jarred marinara sauce
  • cheese- mozzarella or cheddar or jack, any melty cheese.
  • EVOO (Extra virgin Olive Oil). Yeah, I watch Rachel Ray's cooking shows!
Directions :

  1. Slice bagel into half and drizzle EVOO to coat the top
  2. Liberally spread some of the marinara sauce as the base layer like you would on a pizza. Since a bagel is fairly thick, you would need more sauce than on a thin crust pizza.
  3. Pile on all the toppings, as little or as much as you like, the last layer being the yummy cheese- also as little or as much as you like.
  4. Sprinkle a bit of dried oregano
  5. Bake at 375 F for about 20 minutes.

And this is what it looked before I bit into it:

There's another version of this I make on a tortilla but as Alton Brown would say, That's Another Show!


  1. Yum! Now I want to buy bagels.

  2. I love those Costco bagels. The parmesean cheese are my favorite. I think I HAVE to try this next time I get some. They're too good! FYI - we also have the quantity issue, but they actually freeze really well. Microwaving is best defrost, otherwise they dry out. 2 months is about max time in the freezer, though

  3. The best part of the blog is - I get to all this stuff!!!! yay!
