Hot & Cold Lunch Ideas for Kids

School Lunchbox Ideas: Pizza Muffins

  • Author:


  • 1 roll canned crescent rolls (1 sheet, not individual rolls)
  • ½ cup pizza sauce*
  • 1 cup Horizon shredded cheese
  • 20-30 slices of Simple Truth Uncured Pepperoni Slices

*You can make your own pizza sauce with tomatoes and spices but these days I’m all about fast and easy recipes so I use a jar of Simple Truth Organic Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce.


1.      Roll out the crescent dough onto a lightly floured surface.

2.      Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce over the dough and sprinkle with cheese.  Top with pepperoni slices.

3.      Gently roll the dough into a log.

4.      Using a serrated knife, cut the roll into 12 equal pieces.

5.      Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.  Spray the liners with cooking spray.

6.      Place each spiral into a cupcake liner.  Top with a little more sauce and cheese.

7.      Bake at 375 for 12-14 minutes.
