Enjoying pizza in a lunchbox is doable and certainly better for you than the store-bought variation. I like sending the ingredients in individual containers so they can make at school. This keeps the bread/crust for from getting soggy by the time they’re ready for lunch. By adding my own ingredients versus buying the premade, it allows me to customize to their likings. Plus, this better for you “lunchable” provides a serving of veggies, dairy, and whole grains.

If a heat source isn’t available at school (such as a microwave), allow the children to assemble and eat as is. If they’re making at home, I like to broil their individual pizzas for a few minutes to melt the cheese.

Do your children like pizza? Do you ever send pizza in the lunchbox?
