I look so forward to it and then when it finally gets here it’s a bit sad. I can say today has flown by and Lunch box idea for school hope my kiddos are having awesome first day.
I shared a photo on my face book fan page of the kids first day of school. Before bed last night we packed up all the lunch boxes and laid out all their school clothes. I’m so glad that we packed the lunches ahead of time because it was such a time saver this morning. The pizza ones are Carson’s favorite of all the Lunchalbes. I prepared a batch of my no fail pizza crust and got started. I had everything on hand so that made it really easy. My kids thought I was nuts attempting such a thing.
My daughter said mom why are you making those when you can just buy them at the store? I told her because those can get expensive so I want to try and make them myself. The whole process from start to finish was really easy and not time consuming at all. I got about 20 pizza rounds from one pizza dough recipe. Pretty good if you ask me.
The best part is they tasted just like the real deal. Look how cute they look in the little sandwich containers. I have included some step by step photos below to show you how easy these homemade lunchables are to make. This might not be for everyone, but if it’s for you then I think you will enjoy this post. Place each pizza round on a pizza pan or baking stone.
Using a fork prick a few holes to keep the dough from bubbling. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the bottoms are very lightly brown. Remove from oven and let cool before removing from pizza pan. Prepare pizza dough according to recipe. On a floured surface roll out each pizza dough ball into a 5 inch circle.
Using a fork prick the pizza rounds a few times to keep the dough from puffing up. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the bottoms are lightly brown. When completely cool place in a gallon size freezer bag and store in the freezer until ready to use. Add two pizza crusts to a plastic container with a lid.
Add about 2-3 tablespoons pizza sauce to a snack size zip lock bag and seal. Add everything to the plastic sandwich container and place a plastic spoon inside to spread the pizza sauce. Close or snap shut and add to your child’s lunch box. And I am glad you are a Walmart Mom. I don’t buy Lunchables, they usually contain something or other that my daughter doesn’t like. So expensive for such a tiny amount of food. I agree they do love them and they do come in handy for school lunches.
