DIY Pita Pizza Lunchable

I received free samples of Toufayan Pita mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Toufayan Bakeries and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.”

My daughter gets tired of the same lunches with sandwiches. Every so often she likes to take a Lunchable but I don’t like spending the money on an overpriced meal that doesn’t have much to it, and some aren’t the healthiest that I would like her to eat frequently.

Using a Toufayan pita, I was able to easily make a DIY Lunchable which was healthier. She loved the option of including different toppings. You can substitute some veggie toppings or anything, the sky is the limit!

Toufayan Bakery makes such a great variety of flavors that you can mix up what you make and make so many options. I loved some of the flavored pitas like sweet onion and garlic.

Toufayan Bakery is an American family owned business which is great, and they make such a great assortment of flavors. They use top quality, wholesome ingredients and their products are trans fat free, which is something I always check labels for.

Toufayan pitas have high amounts of protein which is good for my daughter, who is now mostly vegetarian. (For her lunch, she omitted the pepperonis and just took cheese.) Plus most have lots of fiber which is so needed in today’s foods. I love that the ingredients are whole food ingredients and not preservatives.  The low carb pita has 16 grams of total carbs, 7 grams of fiber, and 8 grams of protein for each pita.

We used the Toufayan Bakery Low Carb Pita for this recipe, but you could use any of their flavors. The garlic flavor would be great for this pizza lunchable.

I’ve used Toufayan pitas for years and can usually find them in most stores. I’ve used them when my kids were tired of bread sandwiches in their lunchboxes, used them for pizza crusts and many other things. In some stores, they are located in the meat/cheese deli section where you get sliced meats and cheeses instead of in the bread section.

For this lunchable, I found small containers for sauces at Dollar Tree. I use these every day for dressings or other sauces. Sara usually takes raw vegetables and put some dip in the containers.

To make this, I cut the Pita into quarters so they would better fit into my container. Add whatever toppings you want into individual containers. When you buy your own ingredients, you are able to choose things with healthier ingredients like a pizza sauce with no high fructose corn syrup or less sugar.

You can substitute a healthier meat option than a regular pepperoni, such as  a turkey pepperoni. You could even do a pizza with some broccoli florets instead of pepperoni. Hope your child enjoys assembling a pizza!
