Make Your Own Pizza Lunch
See how kids can easily pack a healthy ā€œMake Your Own Pizza" lunch. You assemble your pizzas at school! We use raw, organic veggies and fruits, organic pizza sauce, gluten-free crackers and nitrate-free meats for a healthier but tasty lunch. Choose whatever toppings you love!
  1. Organic pizza sauce
  2. Plain crackers (gluten-free, if possible)
Toppings, such as
  1. Grape tomatoes
  2. Pineapple
  3. Mushrooms, sliced
  4. Ham, sliced and cut small enough to place on cracker
  5. Chicken or turkey sausage
  1. Put the pizza sauce in an air-tight container.
  2. Place all other ingredients in the lunchbox. They look nicer if the ingredients are separated! Cupcake liners are great for this.
  3. The crackers should be packed separately so they stay crisp.
