Veggie Pizza – {easy lunch idea}

Making healthy lunches can be easy with a little planning.  My favorite healthy lunch for my kids is veggie pizza because it’s easy and packs a punch.

I buy the frozen pizza that I use as the base from Trader Joe’s and then add extra veggies to the top and bake the night before.  My kids LOVE this pizza and like it cold (once its been baked, of course) so it’s the perfect healthy lunch.  Plus, the pizza is only $4 at Trader Joe’s, so with the veggies I put on the top, it ends up costing about $1 per child.  That’s  a really inexpensive lunch for my children!

I usually add sliced zucchini and red bell peppers and occasionally portobello mushrooms to the spinach pizza, so you can see that they are getting lots of veggies in their lunch!

  1. Your kids will eat that?! Mine would rather die. Sigh. I’ve ruined them w/ Ramen and hot dogs…

  2. I’m with Kristin (above)….. I might be able to get one of my kids to eat this pizza if it is hot…. but the other 5 would gag and make obnoxious noises. Surely you are doing something right Angie! I am impressed!

  3. It’s so good that they will eat it cold! Mine wouldn’t. And if it doesn’t have pepperoni on it, forget about it! This is a great idea though!!! 😀

  4. That looks SO tasty! I might get the twins on board. We have Jordan trying everything at least once – so there is a possibility!
