Quick & Easy School Lunch: Homemade Pizza Lunch-able

Thursday, August 13, 2015

Bringing school lunches can get boring. They want the same sandwich day in and day out, or they beg for pre-packaged store-bought lunches. You know the ones I mean. Well, you can make them at home for a fraction of the cost and add in some healthy items too.

A few simple ingredients for a pizza-themed lunch cut into pile-able pieces, and you're all set!


What I used:
  • Round butter crackers
  • Pepperoni slices
  • Cheddar Jack slices (any cheese will do)
  • A jar of pizza sauce


Everything involved is already bite-sized except the cheese. Just pile up a few slices and cut them into 4 pieces. Add a dollop of pizza sauce to a small leak-proof container and you're all set!
