Does your family love pizzas as much as mine does? Join the bento box craze with this easy Pita Pizza Bento Box. The adults and kids will have fun creating veggie-packed pizzas that they’ll actually eat at lunchtime! These pizzas are great as an after school snack or as the main meal. Better yet, they will please the whole family since they are so customizable!
Some people think that pizzas are an unhealthy option, but they don’t have to be! Loaded with the right ingredients, pizza can be an awesome meal for a healthy lifestyle. Think about it, tomato sauce, cheese, veggies… pretty good stuff! My family loves making different versions of pizza.
Sometimes we make these Vegetarian Pizzas and my kids absolutely love when we make Pizza Bagel Bites! So this time we wanted to change it up a bit by making them on pitas. We went with whole wheat pitas for an extra dose of nutrition, but regular will do just fine as well. The pitas are a great choice for lunch because they pack well and don’t get soggy after hours in the lunch box.
Nutrition Tip: Processed or cooked tomatoes, like tomato sauce, are found to have high levels of the antioxidant Lycopene, which studies have shown helps to reduce the risk of heart disease.
This Easy Pita Pizza Bento Box is a perfect recipe for the kids to make on their own, too. There isn’t any cooking required and not too many steps so let them help or make them completely. The kids can get creative and add the toppings that they enjoy. These mini pizzas are also a really great meal prep idea if you like to do that. Make a few for the week for easy grab and go’s. Or you could even make a huge batch and freeze them individually for a quick lunch packing option for the future!
