Need an easy and healthy school lunch idea? Check out this DIY pizza lunch!
My kids love interactive lunches. You know, the kind they can put ingredients together and build their delicious masterpiece while talking to their friends.
I first launched MOMables to help parents make healthier versions of some of their favorite school lunches and meals, and everyone asked me for a “healthy pizza.”
What I love about this pizza lunch is that it engages kids to play with their veggies, to use them as pizza crusts and toppings, and to have fun with their foods!
The toppings are unlimited and the pizza combinations are endless. The bonus is that making this lunch is really easy.
The reason I chose to use hummus for this lunch is because the last time I tried to send a build-your-own pizza lunch to school tomato sauce went everywhere. That was the last time, clearly.
I also just found this “pizza” hummus by Sabra at the grocery store and it really does taste like pizza. Don’t worry, they don’t have meat or tomato sauce in it; it’s the seasonings and fine pieces of red pepper that give it it’s pizza-like flavor.
If you think this lunch idea is fun, wait until you see the ones in our sample meal plans.
