“A very yummy and kid-friendly lunch sandwich that can be as easy or as complex as you want it to be. I thought of it today on the way home from my son's preschool using the left over stuff I just happened to have in the house. My kids loved it and I could make it in just a little more time than it would have taken me to make them peanut butter and jelly (the usual lunch). I enjoyed it more than peanut butter and jelly too :-)”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • any size pita bread (I would guess the larger ones would be easier to work with, but it depends on what you want to serve)
  • pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • sliced pepperoni (any other "pizza toppings" you like)


  1. Cut the pitas in half creating two pockets.
  2. Spread sauce on the inside of the pocket both top and bottom.
  3. Gill with pepperoni, cheese or other toppings.
  4. Toss in the microwave for 30-45 seconds.
  5. Enjoy!
