Ingredients

  • 1 tortilla, English muffin, pita bread, or flatbread (any type you prefer; flour tortilla works better than corn)
  • ¼ cup pizza sauce
  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella
  • ¼ cup precooked broccoli florets, pepperoni, sliced olives, or other desired pizza toppings (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat the broiler or plan to use the toaster oven.
  • Spread the pizza sauce onto the tortilla or bread. Add the cheese and desired toppings.
  • Broil on LOW for 4-6 minutes or toast until the cheese is melted and lightly golden brown. Serve warm or fold in half or in quarters to pack in a thermos.

Notes

  • Do your best with portion and keep an eye on what comes home so you know if you need to pack more or less food.
  • Add an easy side, such as a lunch snack, to round out the meal.
  • Pack warm in a thermos or cold or room temperature in a lunch box.
