This healthier “lunchable” pizza lunchbox is just as easy and as fun as the classic pre-made lunch but with better nutrition thanks to some simple and fresh swaps. Who knew pizza could be good for you?
Enjoying pizza in a lunchbox is doable and certainly better for you than the store-bought variation of a pizza lunchable. I like sending the ingredients in divided containers like a bento box so the girls can assemble at school. This keeps the bread/crust from getting soggy by the time they’re ready for lunch. By adding my own ingredients to their lunchboxes versus buying the premade lunch, it allows me to customize to their likings. Plus, this better-for-you “lunchable” uses wholesome ingredients offering fewer preservatives and less sodium.
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.
