Easy Shmeezy Pizza Bagels

I literally began dishing up these pizza bagels when I was a kid. My mother would set up all the ingredients on the kitchen counter and then my little brother and I would get to work creating the ultimate lunch favorite. Topping choices are endless!

1 large bagel, sliced (any variety)
1 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp italian seasoning (a mix of dried oregano, rosemary and other herbs)
1/4 cup shredded cheese (mozzarella or cheddar are great, feta is also quite delicious)
Other toppings of your choice (olives, diced bell peppers, mushrooms, etc)

1. Spoon and spread tomato sauce over bagel slices.
2. Sprinkle garlic powder and italian seasoning evenly on tomato sauce.
4. Top bagels with cheese and any other toppings of your choice.
5. In toaster oven, toast bagel slices until cheese starts to bubble. You can also bake the bagel pizza in a conventional oven at 350.

6. Serve hot straight out of the oven!
