New York Bagels Italian Style Pizza.

Everytime I go visit my family in Upstate NY, I have to stop at my favorite Bagel Shop located in Utica NY.

The Bagels are actually too delicious to even think about making them into pizza when fresh, however, they do sell them on the lunch menu and make sandwiches with them. They also have so many flavors, I couldn't begin to tell you what my favorite is.

The Bagels taste wonderful without anything on them, smoothered in butter or if there happens to be anything left the next day, that started to get a little hard, here what we would do with them. Gigantic Bagel Pizza's! A day old bagel becomes a Gigantic Bagel Pizza.....

6 Plain Bagels split in halves
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup puree’d Whole Tomatoes
2 cups Mozzarella Cheese
1/4 cup Romano and Parmesan blend cheeses
1/4 teaspoon Red pepper Flakes
1/2 teaspoon each Garlic powder, Oregano and Parsley flakes

In a blender add tomatoes and spices blend 20 seconds. On a well oiled cookie sheet, split bagels in half, middle sides up and broil till browned, remove from oven. Put oven on bake at 430 degrees. Top bagels with sauce, mozzarella cheese, grating cheese, return to the oven until cheese if melted and bubbly. You can add any chopped meat toppings you like before adding the cheeses, suggestions, pepperoni, sausage, meatball, mushrooms, olives, peppers.


  1. My mom use to make a dish like this. Great dish and post. Thanks.

  2. What a great idea...and way better than those awful cardboard grocery store pizza crusts!

  3. Bagel pizzas sound excellent, I definitely will make these for my daughter!

  4. mmmm...looks delicious. I would love to use bagels as pizza base...chewy & nice.

  5. Why not? Sometimes we need to make meals like this one for our family. Some of us do not have all the time to stay in the kitchen and just cook. I run my small business during the day and I blog at night when I'm doing the dishes. My children love pizza and bagel. Combining the two is a yummy idea for working mothers.
