Do you remember eating square pizza for lunch when you were back in school? We do! We're bringing back those memories one slice at a time with our recipe for School Lunch Square Pizza. Our version has a super crispy crust with lots of cheesy yumminess!
Another thing we love about this school lunch pizza recipe is that it's easy to make and family friendly. Bakery dough makes this meal easy enough to whip up on any weeknight. You'll be happy that it was so easy to prep and cook, and your family will love the novelty of this throwback school pizza!
If you want to get really nostalgic, you could serve it with a cup of milk and some mixed fruit, but we understand if you want to switch things up. A nice side salad or cooked veggie would be a geat way to round out this delightful meal.

- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 pound bakery pizza or bread dough
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Just because we have our weeknight routines, well, that doesn't mean they have to be boring. Sure, there are a lot of delicious shrimp fried rice recipes out there, but the secret that makes ours stand apart is chilling the rice before we cook it. It makes the fried rice lighter, and it won't get mushy later on. .
