School lunches... oh they get boring. I keep trying to liven them up. I hate to admit it, but my fun lunches have gone the way side. I know I need to bring them back, but I'm not sure when. The problem with my kids is that no one seems to like the same things. I think that they have conspired to make me a lunatic.
You can't go wrong with pizza anything. I am pretty sure that if you put pizza sauce and cheese on a cardboard box the kids would eat it (I am pretty sure that's what the frozen pizza's actually are).
I find myself wanting to get creative. I tried a pizza experiment.
I made my pizza dough. I then rolled it out and cut it like I would for biscuits. I then put them in cupcake liners the same as I would for tarts.
After I had made my "tart shells", I put pizza sauce in the bottom of each, then diced green pepper, pineapple, pepperoni, and finally finely grated mozzarella cheese.
I popped those bad boys in a pre-heated 500 degree oven for 12 minutes.
The kids taste tested them, and they were deemed a success, so much so that I had to wrestle the pizza tarts off of them. I now have some interesting lunch items. I put them in the freezer so that they will stay as fresh as when I made them.
