Pizza and Spinach Wraps

School is back in session and my little girl is in 1st grade this year.  Where did the time go?  I pack a lunch for my husband every day for work but this is the first year that I have had to pack one for my daughter.  I want to instill healthy eating habits for my family and spending a little extra time planning for school lunches is a great way to do it.  In her lunch, I packed this wrap along with carrot sticks and dip (made from a ranch seasoning mix combined with Greek yogurt), mandarin oranges and a packet of raisins.  This is a healthy, quick and tasty wrap that your children will love and it is a wonderful alternative to the typical sandwich.  Do you have any healthy school lunch ideas?


  • 12-inch tortilla wraps (whole wheat preferably - I was out)
  • Pizza or tomato sauce
  • Fresh baby spinach 
  • Shredded mozzarella part skim milk cheese

Lay out one tortilla wrap.  Spread a thin layer of pizza or tomato sauce evenly over all, allowing 1/2-inch space around the edges untouched.  Place an even layer of spinach leaves on top, covering most of the sauce.  Sprinkle the shredded cheese over all.  

Tightly roll up the wrap and set it seam side down on a microwave-safe plate.  Cover with a damp paper towel.  Microwave on high for 30 seconds, or until the cheese is melted.  

Allow to cool for 1 minute.  Cut the wrap in half.  Cut each half in half once more.  

Serve and enjoy!
