Pizza Buns

Lunch is by far the toughest meal of day...not for the kids, but for me!
They'd be happy with tuna sandwiches or homemade macaroni & cheese. Every. Single. Day.
Sure those are great, fairly healthy choices, but what happens when the day comes that they get bored of eating of them? And also, a little variety never hurt anyone.

The biggest challenge is the time it takes to make lunch. There's a small window from when we get home, usually from preschool or the park, to when the girls get out of control from being hungry and tired, so making lunch needs to be quick and easy!

Well these pizza buns meet those requirements!


Seriously these are easy as they come. Grab your favorite pizza toppings, a Pillsbury pizza crust (I've also used the crescent rolls when there were no pizza crusts available), and you're set.

And of course for those of you that are on the ball and organized (not me!), you could use homemade pizza dough.


My reasons for using premade pizza dough...




Pizza Buns:

Ingredients:

Pizza sauce
Cheese
Your favorite pizza toppings such as:
Ham*
Pepperoni
Sausage
Peppers
Onions
Pineapple

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a baking pan - I used a round 8 inch cake pan.
Roll out your pizza dough. Add sauce, toppings and cheese.
Carefully roll up the pizza dough.
With a serrated knife slice the pizza roll into 10-12 slices.
Bake 13-17 minutes or until golden brown.

These buns freeze well and can be heated up when you're short on time. Like I usually am.


*When we have ham for dinner, I try to keep some aside and then make these buns for lunch the next day.

    1. They're pretty good! We actually had them for lunch today!
      The girls love dipping everything so I give them a bit of pizza sauce for dipping :)
