These pizza uncrustables are SO easy to make guys. And everyone is loving a cheesy pizza-inspired sandwich in our home. They have been on repeat for both my kids and myself when we need a quick and easy meal. And I even sneak in some spinach to the sandwich. Or you can customize with your favorite toppings like pepperoni or any other finely chopped veggies you have on hand.

I like to grill these sandwiches on a skillet for a couple of minutes before eating. That way the cheese gets all melted and gooey when you eat it. But it is optional if you prefer not to too – totally fine too!

Tip: have your kids help you make these! They can pick out their toppings and help “press” the sandwich cutter into it.

What ingredients are in pizza uncrustables:

  • Sliced bread – you can use any sandwich bread! gluten-free if needed. A softer bread works best here!
  • Marinara sauce – any go to tomato sauce works great
  • Chopped spinach – technically optional but so easy to put in with the sauce and sneak it into the sandwich
  • Shredded cheese – any cheese you want! Mozzarella is our favorite here

How to make your own pizza uncrustable:

  1. Place the bread onto a flat surface and sprinkle half the cheese on one slice of bread
  2. Mix the tomato sauce and spinach together in a small bowl
  3. Next spread tomato sauce on top of cheese and sprinkle additional cheese on top
  4. Place other slice of bread on top then press the sandwich crimper into the center of the sandwich to remove crusts (I usually eat the crust when I make it)
  5. Grill the uncrustable in a lightly greased non-stick pan for about 2-3 minutes on medium/low heat
  6. Pack uncrustable into launch container (once cooled) or enjoy off the skillet!

Best tips for success making pizza uncrustables:

  • Softer sandwich bread works best here but you can use any you’d like. Whole wheat, white, gluten-free, anything
  • I love mixing the chopped spinach with the sauce first so it all kind of blends together and is easier to put into the sandwich and spinach does fall out
  • If you want to make this the night before you can. Then either grill day of or serve cold. I usually put mine on a skillet to melt the cheese for 2-3 minutes on low heat
  • If packing this in a lunch box, add any snacks to go with it your kids like!
