The same PB&J gets a bit boring after eating it for the zillionth time, so turn your kid's lunch into something he looks forward to with this spin on traditional pizza. I love tucking a piece of leftover pizza in my daughter's lunch, but by the time she gets to eat, the crust is like cardboard. Swapping for tortillas keeps things easy to eat — and the spirals look so enticing!

    • 1 8-inch tortilla
    • 1 tablespoon pizza sauce
    • 1/4 cup shredded cheese
    • 1 teaspoon olives, sliced
    • 1 basil leaf, chopped


    1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF.

    2. Cover the tortilla with the pizza sauce and then the cheese.

    3. Sprinkle on the olives and basil then roll the tortilla.

    4. Place on a foil covered sheet pan then bake for 5 minutes.

    5. Remove and let cool before slicing and serving, or store in the fridge for grabbing when packing lunches.


    You can personalize the spirals with your child's favorite pizza toppings — and this quick bite is delicious hot or cold. You can make several rolls to cut into spirals so you have grab-and-go lunch for your child all week.
