Clown Face English Muffin Pizzas

Littler kids won’t appreciate the subtleties of a flavorful crust, and they usually aren’t interested in a wide variety of toppings. But they sure love making pizzas with faces! These fast, fun pizzas are a perfect party food and each kid can easily make his or her own, making a face or whatever they like. For children, the best pizza sauce is a can of good tomatoes (try a can of Italian plum tomatoes marked San Marzano for best flavor) pureed in a blender with their juices. It makes a simple, kid-friendly sauce that lets the sweetness of the tomatoes shine through. (Adults love it too, provided you sprinkle the surface of the sauce with a touch of Italian seasoning and a little Parmesan.)
