This post is a re-photo of the post from November 2015. I can’t believe I did this post so many years ago! Lunchbox mini pizzas are still a favourite around here!
So, I have to be completely honest, my kids love pizza. I like to make it myself because then it has no nasties and because then I can hide some green cheese (zucchini) in it too. Making them into lunchbox mini pizzas was the obvious step.
Today Miss 5 declared that sushi is boring. I mean really? What? It was even made with pimped rice today- a mix of brown rice, random leftovers of white rice and tricolour quinoa. But apparently, it’s boring.
So, I decided to take the time to make some mini pizzas that I can pop in lunch boxes. Hopefully they will be interesting enough for her. That is if there are any left- Master 3 is currently devouring his 4th and doesn’t seem like he’s going to stop any time soon. My plan is to pop them in the freezer, ready made so they are good for days like today when it’s so hot or other lunchbox days when something like sushi is way too hard!
Now these lunchbox mini pizzas nearly didn’t make it to you- I can’t find my mixer dough hook. Anywhere! And it’s something I use 2-3 times per week. I’m hoping Master 3 has put it somewhere (he’s obsessed with being Captain Hook among other characters at the moment). But it’s not looking promising. UPDATE: I did find that dough hook- it was under his bed!
I used sandwich cutters to cut the shapes for these, a butterfly, heart, boat and star. The star were very difficult to get just right and the easiest were the hearts. Ideally you would be better off using stainless steel cookie cutters for these, something I’ll try next time, because today I’m set on making all my cooking very difficult to do. So when I remade these I used a bear cutter instead!
Anyway, enough of my woes! I’ve used homemade yoghurt in this recipe, if you’d like to know how, have a read of this post.
I’ve got a couple of recipes which I made in “mini” sizes. Check them out:
- Tuna and veggie mini quiches
- Mini cheese and spinach savoury tarts
- Brown rice mini pizzas, gluten free, freezer friendly
