Bagel Pizzas – School Lunch Idea

Thanks for Sharing!

Bagel Pizzas is a fun and creative way to serve pizzas for school lunches! This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

Why Make Bagel Pizza?

Do your kids love bagels and pizza? I probably shouldn’t ask about the pizza because what kid doesn’t?:)

  • Combining those two and making bagel pizzas is a great way to change things up.
  • It’s super easy.
  • Also, it’s a fun way for little hands to eat a pizza.

I first started making Bagel Pizzas a few years ago. The first time I made some they were a hit with the kids. Well, my friends, that’s all the motivation I needed. Bagel pizzas became an occasional treat at our house. Now I don’t make them as much anymore because 1 – too many pizzas and 2 – I tend to forget. But during the school year, these are an easy freezer-make-ahead food that can be packed for school lunches.

Homemade Bagel Pizzas

What you need:

  • Bagels
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (or a mix of Mozzarella and Cheddar)
  • Pepperoni (optional or whatever meat your child likes on a pizza)
  • Dried, crushed Italian seasoning or basil (optional)

What to do:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Split bagels in halves
  • Spread each half with pizza sauce
  • Sprinkle with cheese
  • Add pepperoni or other meat
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove and let cool before serving.

To Freeze:

You can freeze the pizzas by placing them in a freezer bag or Pyrex and saving them for later. When it’s time to serve, remove them from the freezer and heat them for 30-40 seconds (more if needed) in the Microwave or in the oven about 7 mins.

Packing Bagel Pizza for Lunch

Place one or two bagels or as many as you think your child needs in a small bowl, then into their lunch boxes. My daughters used this this lunch box and that one.
