Summertime calls for quick and easy recipes so that you can get back outside and enjoy the sunshine. Maybe your kids are taking a dip in the pool and need fuel to keep going. Maybe you’re dipping your toes in the pool, relaxing with a book, and need a comforting snack. No matter who you are, Homemade Pizza Bagels are for you!

Homemade pizza bagels start with a gluten-free bagel thin, topped with tomato sauce, layered with cheese, and then sprinkled with your favorite toppings. You can add any pizza topping you like for a variety! Bake for just a few minutes and you have the easiest, most fabulous summertime lunch ever.

What Bagels Should I Use?

Quite obviously, we need a delightful gluten-free bagel for the base of these Homemade Pizza Bagels. However, we don’t want anything too “bready.” After all, it is summer and a light lunch is a goal here!

I found these amazing gluten-free bagel thins at the local market. They are super thin and crisp up very nicely when toasting, much like a thin and crispy pizza crust. They are also amazing with a shmear of strawberry cream cheese! If you have other GF bagel brands local to you, you can use those. 

Ingredients in Homemade Pizza Bagels

  • 1 gluten-free bagel thin, halved
  • 2 tablespoons prepared tomato sauce
  • 2 slices mozzarella cheese, or cheese of choice
  • 1 pinch dried oregano

Optional toppings:

  • 8 slices of mini salami or pepperoni
  • Sliced onions
  • Olives
  • Sliced bell pepper
  • Sliced pineapple chunks
  • Ham slices

How to Make Homemade Pizza Bagels

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Lay your pizza bagels out on a baking sheet, separating the halves.

Spread a tablespoon of tomato sauce onto each bagel half. Top with a slice of cheese each. Sprinkle a bit of oregano over the top.

Now, you can really play with the toppings you like. Top with as few or as many toppings as you like on your pizza.

Bake for 5-10 minutes until the bagel is crisp and the cheese is melted.

Serve warm right out of the oven. Dip into ranch dressing, if desired.
