Lunchboxes are tough. They feel like they are neverending. But sometimes you make a little recipe that makes it all a little easier. These Hawaiian pizza scrolls do just that! They are a winner with less than 5 ingredients!
If you've followed me for a while, you are probably wondering why I'm using pineapple, as my son is allergic to it. But we are testing that theory and I've been dropping pineapple-y deliciousness into a few things and he is tolerating it well. Stay tuned for more pineapple over the coming months!
Back to these scrolls. They are super easy to make and only use 5 ingredients. That's what I like about them. Seriously, recipes with 5 or less ingredients are the bomb for school lunches. Especially when they are easy to find ingredients and super cheap!
I don't really know why we name everything that contains pineapple as hawaiian when realistically most of the pineapples in Oz come from Queensland. I guess Queensland pizza scrolls just doesn't have the same ring.
Personally, I can't stand pineapple of pizza. My first real introduction to proper pizza was in Italy and there was no pineapple on the pizzas. In fact, my local pizza place vehemently opposes it citing the fact that they have certification from Naples in pizza making as their reason for NEVER using it.
I think my opposition to it is because it is so sweet, so it doesn't work with savoury pizza for me. But that is also what makes it so popular with the kids! The combination of savoury and sweet is perfectly suited to a kids palette.
If like me, 5 ingredients or less recipes really appeal, check out this post that will get your lunches done in no time with all the featured recipes having 5 or less ingredients! Need more scroll ideas for the lunchbox? Check out this post all about scrolls.
