If your kids love lunchables as much as mine do, then you will love this homemade DIY version, full of real ingredients! These Easy Homemade Pizza Lunchables cost a fraction of the price of store bought lunchables and you can customize the ingredients!
A few months ago, we met our friends at a park for a picnic and when it was time to eat, our friend pulled out a bunch of pizza like ingredients and had her kids start putting together little mini pizzas. While making your own pizza is not a new idea, as I watched her kids make their pizzas, I realized that their creations were looking exactly like the little pizzas from the lunchables!
My daughter loves lunchables, just like most kids do, but I hate both the cost and also the amount of preservatives and chemicals in the ingredients. This homemade version saves you money and you can control exactly what goes in them!
Next try some of our favorite simple meal kids can make at home!
How to Make Easy homemade pizza lunchables
Here’s the trick to making these little pizzas extra delicious – you have to find the right material for the crust! We tried lots of different options. Tortillas were too thin. Regular mini pizza crusts can’t be eaten unbaked. Bread thins were just too…bready. Finally, we found the perfect receptacle for our pizza crust, naan bread!
Naan bread is an Indian flatbread that is chewy just like pizza crust! Most stores are carrying mini naan breads, which are just perfect for your pizzas. If you can’t find minis, I guarantee you can find the regular size. Just use a cookie cutter or biscuit cutter to cut the bread into a smaller portion for a lunch box.
What you need:
- Mini naan bread
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Pizza Sauce
- Desired toppings, pepperoni, veggies, sausage, etc.
Homemade Pizza Lunchable Tips:
Packaging your DIY lunchable
So I have made these almost weekly for my daughter to take to school and I asked her if she had any tips to share!
Make sure your pizza sauce is in an airtight container. We have had a few sauce explosions in the lunch box when I have tried to use various containers. We have found that little salad dressing containers make a great container for the sauce.
Make sure to pack a disposable spoon so you can spread your sauce!
Two crusts seem to be enough for my daughter as these are much more filling than the flimsy pizza shells that come in the lunchable.
Easy Homemade Pizza Lunchables
- 2 mini naan breads
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

- If making for a lunch box, package crusts, cheese, and sauce separately in air tight containers.
