Why not have a festive bagel wreath pizza that also incorporates veggies for your kiddos?! I always think this is a fun recipe that gives you the taste of pizza, but is also healthy and sure to keep your kids’ energy high on a fun play date.

Makes: 8 servings
Serving size: 1 bagel half
Yield: 8 bagel halves
Prep: 15 minutes
Bake: 10-12 minutes


  • 4 whole wheat bagels, split
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli flowerets, steamed
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 ounces roasted red sweet peppers


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Arrange the bagel halves, cut sides up, on prepared baking sheet. Spread each with 1 tablespoon pizza sauce. Top each with some of the cheese. Arrange broccoli and tomatoes on top of each to resemble a wreath.
  2. Cut peppers into long thin strips and shape each into a ribbon. Place on each bagel half.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cheese melts and cheese browns lightly.
