A Homemade Lunchables Pizza made with real ingredients that your kid will be excited to assemble and eat.
We all know store-bought Lunchables are a highly appealing option for kids, and it’s not hard to see why. Unfortunately, it’s also not hard to overlook the lack of nutrition and quality ingredients in these pre-packaged lunches.
This recipe for Homemade Pizza Lunchables shows you how to recreate this concept into a much healthier lunch that’s just as fun to assemble.
Homemade Pizza Lunchable
This Homemade Pizza Lunchable uses better-for-you ingredients like nitrate-free pepperoni, whole wheat pita rounds, shredded Mozzarella cheese, and marinara sauce. It’s just as easy to put together as the store-bought option and tastes way better. Here’s how to do it:
- Spread the marinara sauce over the pita round
- Top with cheese and pepperoni
That’s it! Add a drink, some fresh fruit, and a homemade treat, and this meal is complete.
Pizza Lunchable Topping Ideas
Another bonus to creating your pizza lunchable is choosing what ingredients and toppings go into the lunch. Below are ideas your child can select to create their personal pizza:
- Chopped deli meat
- Black olives
- Sliced bell peppers
- Tomato Sauce
- Homemade Alfredo
- Veggie Pesto
- Shredded cheese
- Feta cheese
- Hummus (if your child doesn’t like sauce)
Making healthy homemade lunchables isn’t hard; just swap “their” ingredients with more wholesome alternatives. Easy!
Homemade Lunchable Essentials
To make your own lunchables, I recommend investing in the items below:
- A compartmentalized lunch container: to keep wet and dry ingredients separate
- Lidded sauce containers (2-4 ounces): perfect for sauces and prevents spills
- Ice pack: keeps ingredients chilled
- Reusable plastic cutlery: for spreading
If you don’t have a lunch container with compartments, use a regular container and silicone muffin cups to keep the ingredients separate.
Easy Homemade Lunchables Pizza
- 1 pita round
- ¼ cup shredded cheese
- 4-6 nitrate-free pepperoni slices
- ¼ cup marinara sauce
- In a compartmentalized lunch container, divide the pita round, cheese, and pepperoni slices, making sure to keep the ingredients separate.
- Pack the marinara into a lidded sauce container and send with the rest of the ingredients and a plastic spoon.
- To assemble, spread the marinara sauce over the pita and top with cheese and pepperoni.
