If you were a kid in the 90’s, you may remember the joyous feeling of opening up your lunchbox at school only to discover Lunchables inside. Sure, looking back on it, we realize Lunchables were essentially just mass-produced bento boxes with basic ingredients like crackers and highly-processed cheese shreds, but at the time it didn’t matter: there was just something so satisfying about assembling our own lunch.
Lunchables recently announced that it’s back and coming for all of our nostalgic feels because it is bringing back their Pizza and Treatza boxes.
True Lunchable aficionados will remember the Pizza and Treatza Lunchable was the crown and glory of all Lunchable options: they featured stale-ish pizza crusts (which we loved at the time), Kraft mozzarella shreds, tomato sauce, chocolate frosting, and candy-coated chocolate chips. You get the idea — you could make a savory pizza and follow it up with a dessert pie.
Here’s the thing: for $2.99, you can buy yourself one of these new Lunchable boxes. Just remember that each box contains a whopping 29 grams of sugar and 520 milligrams of sodium!
Skip the Boxed Stuff, and Make Your Own Dessert Pizza at Home
You know what one of the best parts of being an adult is? Getting to cook for yourself, of course!

Check out some of our favorite recipes featured on the Food Monster App to get an idea of what we mean.
Treatza who? Check out this show-stealing and grain-free Raw Dessert Pizza With Banana Cream and Berry Sauce by Karen Kitto.
If you make one foray into the world of dessert pizzas, let this be it. This ultra-decadent raw dessert starts with a chewy crust made from dates, almonds, and coconuts. Then, it’s topped with a fruity, date-sweetened berry sauce, banana cream, an amazing crumble made from coconut and almonds, chocolate sauce, and fresh fruit and nut toppings. Yes, this pizza has it all.
This Nutella Dessert Pizza by Melina Kutelas is pretty much as sophisticated as a literal dessert pizza can get.
Nutella. Dessert. Pizza. This may just be one of the greatest creations of all (dessert) history. The recipe for the crust is simple and worth keeping on hand for any other dessert pizzas in your future, but the real star of the show (unsurprisingly) is the homemade vegan Nutella! So spread it generously and garnish this pie with whatever you’d like.
Lean into the cinnamon-roll craze with this Cinnamon Crumb Dessert Pizza by Melanie Sorrentino.
There is no way you can make this and it not be flipping delicious. The cinnamon/brown sugar/butter flavor is just SO good. You will absolutely wow your family and friends with this one. This pizza is warm, cozy, cinnamony, and crazy easy to make.
