Loaded Mini-Pizzas

I like Lunchables Pizzas.

I do.

When I see a student with one for lunch, I get a little jealous.

Okay.  Really jealous.

I mean, it's not even cooked!  That's repulsive...right?  No.  It's delicious.  I tried them when I was in elementary school; when they were first introduced to the Lunchables world.

I begged for them when we went to the grocery store.  I only got, maybe, one every other month.  It wasn't nearly enough.

True story.  On our U-Haul trek to Alaska, we stopped at a convenience store in Minnesota because I was (apparently) starving.  I think Scott got beef jerky.  I got myself a Lunchables Pizza.  And I enjoyed every last speck of it.

That was like 2 years ago.

I need to go get another one.  It's been too long.

However, now that I'm a grown-up (yuck) and I've realized that preservatives are not actually good for you, despite what those kid-friendly commercials may make you think, I've devised a grown-up version.

My version is cooked.  However, it can be just as portable.  Toss everything into a Tupperware container, put the sauce in a small Ziploc bag, assemble at lunchtime, and then microwave at your place of business/ the classroom microwave.

Loaded Mini-Pizzas 
for each individual:

4 T. pizza sauce
1/2 t. oregano
1/2 t. garlic salt
1/2 cup of finely diced toppings
1/2 shredded cheese

Pre-heat the broiler.  Lightly broil each side of the Sandwich Thin to get it nice and toasty.  Then, spread sauce on each "thin", sprinkling the oregano and garlic salt over the sauce (I personally just put oregano and garlic salt on every pizza because I like them.  Do what you prefer.)
Add on the toppings and shredded cheese.  Broil for a few minutes until the cheese is golden and bubbly.

  1. We love sandwich thins. It's amazing how versatile they are. We use them for hamburger buns also.

  2. I love sandwich thins too. I've found that you can buy them at Costco and freeze them. They last forever this way and are much less expensive in the long run!

  3. These look TASTY! I would LOVE it if you shared this recipe with us at Cast Party Wednesday tomorrow!

    I hope to see you there!

  4. Love this idea..never thought to do them on the sandwich thins...i see a pizza lunch in my future :)
