A low carb homemade pizza Lunchable that gives the flavors of the traditional product while staying lower in carbs.
Am I the only one that loves pizza lunchables? I mean I really love them.
I still remember when these came out (makes me feel old). I talked my mom into buying them. Cold, uncooked pizza. She said yuck but got it for me.
I took it to school and loved it. That combo of the chewy soft bread with the sauce, cheese and pepperoni was delicious to my kid taste buds.
And even though I now love things like goat cheese and black truffles, my heart still holds a special place for those little plastic containers filled with pizza fixins.

Low Carb Homemade Pizza Lunchable
The problem with the pizza Lunchable is that it is not low carb. And since I have lost 60 lbs since my last baby following Trim Healthy Mama, I like to keep many of my meal low carb (THM S).
So I set out to fill my craving by creating a low carb homemade pizza Lunchable. You only need a few items to create this lunch that will take you back to memories of your 8th grade cafeteria.
Here is what you need.
- Joseph’s Pita
- Pizza Sauce – I use this one, if you are THM it does have soybean oil but it has no added sugar or fillers.
- Shredded Cheese
- Other Veggies – Since it is your lunchable, you control the ingredients. You could add mushrooms, bell pepper, olives. Whatever you like on your pizza.
You won’t see me adding anything else. I might not be a THM purist, but I am certainly a Pizza Lunchable purist! Only sauce, cheese and pepperoni for me.
Homemade Pizza Lunchable Assembly
Using a circular cookie cutter, I cut the pita into round pizza crusts. You could also just cut the pita into fourths to make it easier.
*Remember that on THM, you can have a whole pita. You only need to halve the lavash bread.
For the pita, I have toasted the pita rounds and just eaten it fresh. I prefer the texture of the fresh, never toasted bread. It is closer to the real deal to me.
Next, just put your pizza sauce, cheese and toppings in a container. And bonus, you will have enough cheese. I never have enough cheese on the prepacked variety.
Now you are ready for lunch. Assemble each mini pizza when it is time to eat. No microwave needed.
Tools To Make Packing Pizza Lunchables Easy
Easy Lunchboxes are containers that I have been using to pack lunches for my kids for years. The ones that I bought about 3 years ago are still going strong.
The larger containers are perfectly set up to hold your pizza crusts, cheese and toppings. Making it easy to pack and go.
The small mini dippers are great to hold the pizza sauce. I like having a top on the sauce if you are going to take it to work to avoid spills.
These Cookie Cutters are great if you want to make the small pita circles just like the regular Lunchables.
Here is the star of the show. I use these Joseph’s pitas a lot on my low carb/Trim Healthy Mama Journey.
