Mini Pizza Lunch Recipe

School Lunch Box Ideas with King’s Hawaiian 

King’s Hawaiian products are a staple in my pantry,  we all love the rolls and bread for everyday sandwiches, fun recipes, and making school lunches extra special.  I buy the King’s Hawaiian Sweet Original Dinner Rolls each week to make french toast with and if I don’t hide the bag, Lilly will have snacked on all the rolls throughout the week before I have a chance to make the breakfast.

Another favorite recipe for my kids is making mini pizzas out of the King’s Hawaiian Savory Original Dinner Rolls.  They fit perfectly in our school lunch boxes and add a fun twist to the average sandwich lunch. 

The unique flavor of these loaves of bread and rolls ranging from sweet to savory really helps create a variety of exciting meals that the entire family can enjoy.

Next, spread a spoonful of pizza sauce on each dinner roll half and top with shredded cheese.  If you have a pepperoni pizza fan, add a piece of pepperoni to top of each mini pizza.

Once your pizzas are assembled, Place them in the oven for 15 minutes to crisp up the bread and melt the cheese.  Remove them from the oven and let them cool off.  Once cool, add the mini pizzas to your child’s lunch box, download our free lunch box cards and write them a cute note, then send them off to school.
