These easy ❤️ heart-shaped pizza lunchables will make any kid excited to bring a homemade lunch to school!
This DIY lunch is packed with heart-shaped pita bread, pizza sauce, mozzarella and pepperoni. Perfect for all of those kids that want to do it themselves 😉

What’s in this Lunch
- Heart Cut Pita Bread: I used the fluffier style of pita bread in this recipe, but any pre-cooked pizza crust, halved English muffins, flatbread or big crackers will work. You can use either regular, whole wheat or gluten-free versions of the above.
- Mozzarella + Pizza Sauce: it’s best to use shredded mozzarella or an Italian cheese blend for this lunch. You can use either pizza sauce, tomato sauce or marinara.
- Heart Cut Pepperoni: you can use any pepperoni or vegan pepperoni in this recipe. If your kiddo doesn’t care for pepperoni, then you can simply add-in any chopped veggie or topping they prefer – chopped green or red peppers, sliced mushrooms, pineapple, slices of ham, sliced black olives, shredded basil, etc.
- Grapes + Heart Watermelon Spears: I made heart wands for this lunch, but you can definitely just add in the fruit and call it a day. You will still be an amazing mom if you don’t spear the fruit on a stick, promise!
- Dye-Free Candy: you can use any candy or small chocolate in the lunchbox. You can also add a sweet note in there as well if you prefer to not add in sweets to your kid’s lunchboxes.
