Finagle a pizza bagel

Recipe made by: Robbie Shorr

Packaged pizza bagels come in many different shapes and sizes, but no matter you slice it (get it?), they’re definitely a college favorite. The ease with which they can be made and a serious nostalgia factor work together to make pizza bagels a common sight on campus. And while they’re great as is, a little gourmet-ifying never hurt nobody. Here’s a concoction that’s a simple twist on a true kollege klassic.


  • 1 Bagel
  • Trader Joe’s Roasted Red Pepper Spread with Eggplant and Garlic
  • Cheese of your choice


  1. Slice the bagel and toast it.                                                                             IMG_2167

  3. Put the cheese on top of the red pepper spread.                                                         IMG_2169
  4. Microwave for about 30 seconds, or until the cheese has reached the desired meltiness.                                                                                     IMG_2170
