Homemade Pizza Lunchables

As a mom on a budget, I’m always finding ways to cut down on costs at the grocery store. I’m sure you know how easy it is to increase your bill when you add pre-packaged snacks and treats to the shopping cart.

That’s why I love these simple pizza lunchables. If you haven’t started meal prepping your kids lunches (even if they’re at home right now) then you must give it a try! It’s just as easy to make one lunch as it is to make five for the entire week.

All you’ll need are some meal prep containers and smaller containers that can easily fit inside. There are many different options out there, from my favorite stainless steel containers, glass containers, and these plastic meal planning containers I’m using today.

If you’re on a budget, you can use plastic meal prep containers like I did in the photos for a budget-friendly option. They come in an amazing variety pack that you can buy on amazon.

Note: You’ll also want to pack them a disposable spoon that they can use to spread the pizza sauce on each sandwich round with.

School Lunch Pizzas

Half of the fun is allowing the kids to put their pizzas together themselves. Each mini pizza can easily be assembled using the ingredients inside the box.

Pizza Lunchable Sides

You can use any kinds of sides for your pizza lunchables. Today I’m using grape tomatoes and slices of bell peppers. You could also use grapes, orange slices, cucumber, apple, avocado, carrots and celery.

Ingredients For Pizza Lunchables

Easily Put Pizza Lunchables Together

Assembling these mini pizzas is super easy. If your child is at school, they can do this on a paper towel.

  • Place a sandwich thin on a paper towel
  • Use a spoon to spread the pizza sauce on the bread
  • Sprinkle cheese on top
  • Add pepperoni slices

Best Way To Pack Pizza Lunchables

When you pack a bento box style lunch for your child, the ingredients inside can move around in their backpack. Keeping all sauces and wetter ingredients separate from the dry ingredients will prevent soggy bread. Keep sauces in individual containers, and wetter ingredients in small snack-size bags.

You can even wrap the sandwich rounds in plastic wrap before adding them to the meal prep container to ensure freshness.

Do You Need To Reheat The Pizzas?

No. These mini pizzas can be eaten cold, which is why they’re so great. However, if you want to reheat them that’s also an easy option. I recommend using a plate or paper towel to heat them and not the plastic container. These can be reheated in the microwave for 30-60 seconds.
