Lunchables are one of the coolest things kids can bring for lunch, well according to my kids that is. There is something about lunchables pizza that kids love, not sure exactly what it is but I am pretty sure it is the ability to make their own pizza at lunch time. Which is why my kids love these Homemade Pizza Lunchables!
To save money and give my kids a healthier lunch then those prepackaged lunchables, we make our own. These lunchables pizzas are perfect for the kids lunches and a fun kid friendly healthier lunch option.

Homemade Pizza Lunchables
As a Mom I am not a fan of the cost for pizza lunchables, they are rather expensive for what you are getting and I have found that I can make homemade lunchables pizzas for a lot less money. If you have never made your own, it is so easy to make your own lunchables!
These Homemade Pizza Lunchables are school lunches that my kids love, and I love them because I also know what all in the meal I am packing for my kids lunches.
My kids forever thought that I was a mean mom because I wouldn’t buy them the lunchables at the grocery store and send them to school as their lunch. But since it is super easy to make your own pizza lunchables the kids can have them for lunch at school and as a Mom I know what is in them.
School Lunch Pizza
Making your own homemade lunchable pizzas is also a better option the store bought lunchables because you can change up the toppings to what ever your kid loves. Mine like to change it when we make them and change their toppings. It means if you have a kiddo who loves pizza then really they could have pizza every day for lunch and still not be having the same thing!
Some of our favorite toppings for homemade pizza lunchables are:
- Black Olives
- Green peppers
- Ham and pineapple
Pizza Lunchables Sides
My kids always like to have more then just the pizza in their lunch box. I try to change up the sides that I put in the lunch box whenever they pack lunch so it is not the same thing over and over again. Here are a few lunchbox sides to add to your kids lunch.
- Easy Fruit Salad
- yogurt parfaits
- string cheese
- side salad
- Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins
- Watermelon Fruit Salad
- Mini Blueberry muffins
How to Make Lunchables Pizza Sauce
When making this school lunch pizza recipe you can use jarred sauce, however I find that homemade pizza sauce tastes much better. My kids agree and they prefer the homemade sauce to any of the jarred ones I have used.
I have found the best way to make your own homemade pizza lunchables is using a bento box. There are many different bento boxes, however this is the one we have. It is important that you also pack a plastic spoon to make it easy for the kids to spread their pizza sauce. Do your self a favor and grab the box of 100 plastic spoons, it is so much easier then worrying about if the kids accidentally throw them away at school.
