How To Serve Pizza Bagels

These little pizzas can be served as either a light dinner or snacks on the go which makes them so convenient.  Serve them by themselves or along side with a nice big chef salad with lots of chopped vegetables.  Caesar Salad would be great too.  Roasted vegetables would be a great addition too.
