Bread pizza made in slightly different method will give you these perfect kids lunch box idea. I have been making this for years now, but few days back when I saw  buzzfeed video on making grilled pizza sandwich, I decided to post here in my blog too. Few of Aj’s friends love this and I always pack extra for them when I pack this for Aj’s lunch box. Easy to us to make and kids also love this. The stuffing inside can be varied according to your kid’s preference.
Aj always prefer these kind of tiffin items for lunch box. It is easy for him to finish fast and play at the lunch time. When I was a kid, lunch will always be rice. I remember my parents carry lunch box to our school for me and my brother. They never wanted us to eat packed lunch box that is not hot. Until I was in nursery, my mom will carry lunch for me and my brother. I wonder how she managed, being in a joint family, among all her daily chores and after cooking, without any tiredness she used to carry lunch for us in the hot sun and walk few Kms. After we went to high school, it was my dad who bring lunch for us in cycle. Never realised how lucky we were and how much even small things matter to them. Later when we grew up, we used to go home and have lunch. Aj also like hot food, but he is not ready to even carry an extra lunch bag, if I think I should pack his lunch in hot boxTongue.

Pizza sandwich recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Continental  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time 10 mins    |  Cook time: 5 mins     Serves: 2


Bread slices – 4

Pasta sauce *(refer notes)  – 4 tsp

Cheese slice* – 2

Chopped onion, tomato, capsicum – 1/2 cup

Chilli flakes – 1/4 tsp

Butter – To smear


  1. Heat the sandwich maker (You can make in dosa pan too). Meanwhile, gather the ingredients needed. Apply pasta sauce to the bottom bread of the sandwich.
  2. 1 spread
  3. Keep the onion tomato capsicum in two sides, so that each triangle is filled with the stuffing. Over it, place the cheese slices, torn and folded so that it wont ooze out easily in the sides.
  4. 2-arrange
  5. In a well greased sandwich maker or dosa tawa, toast these sandwiches until golden and crisp.
  6. 3-ready


    • *You can use mozarella if you are gonna serve immediately. Or a mixture of mozarella, cheedar/ sandwich cheese for real pizza effect.
    • *You can also use pizza sauce or tomato ketchup plus italian seasoning in place of pasta sauce.
    • Chilli flakes are optional.
    • I used very less cheese. If you want more you can add, but keep in mind that the cheese may ooze out as the sandwich gets toasted. Then cleaning will be a mess.
    • You can make the same in grill (Dosa pan) too..

You can wrap in aluminium foil after cooling and pack for lunch box.
