If there’s one thing that Olivia has requested over and over again in her lunch, it’s the pizza Lunchable kit from the grocery store. At just under four bucks when it’s on sale, it’s not unreasonable, and there are times over the past few weeks of school that we’ve bought them for those mornings when I can barely adult, let alone, make a lunch – but then it dawned on me, why aren’t we doing this ourselves?
A small container of tomato sauce from the refrigerator or the freezer, or a can (whatever you have on hand), a pita cut up into pieces, and a small bit of shredded cheese to top it with. You really can’t get much easier lunch preparation than that, right?
You know what’s in the ingredients. You can even follow this easy recipe and make pitas yourself (it’s fast, I promise).
For containers, I use our regular swear-by weangreen containers that have the perfect seal and have lasted us for two years+, a smaller one for the sauce, and I put a silicon muffin container filled with cheese in the same container as the pita. Don’t worry, the lid from the glass container holds it in place, keeping the cheese from spilling.
They don’t need to warm it up, since the kits are usually eaten cold – and you’ve got an easy lunch that you can customize with small pieces of pepperoni, veggies and other toppings.
