Lunches are always a struggle in our house. Jordan is now in middle school and apparently they don’t sit and eat lunch, they hang out with their friends and snack. The problem is, Jordan needs a full lunch to be able to handle an afternoon of classes…but she wants to fit in and be cool too. That’s where these Pizza waffles and Copycat Uncrustables come in!

We’ve never really liked the store bought Uncrustables. Jordan doesn’t love peanut butter with jelly, plus she can’t take peanut butter to school. This method for making your own Uncrustables is perfect for a picky kid or a kid with allergies because you can make them however you want!

By far, Jordan’s favorite one of these is the PIZZA version. Gooey and cheesy, who doesn’t love pizza? If your kids like PB&J, you can make those too or even use turkey and cheese (or any lunchmeat). This recipe is really a method you can use to make your kids happy at lunch.

The best part about this recipe is that you can freeze these for later use. I love to freeze them and pop them from the freezer into Jordan’s lunch. By lunchtime they’re thawed and she doesn’t even care that they’re not hot.

Copycat Uncrustables can be made in any flavor: pizza, pb&J, or even turkey or ham and cheese. They’re every kids favorite lunch!

How to make Copycat Uncrustables:

  • Start with a refrigerated biscuit dough. I love using Grands! biscuits, but you can use any brand. One can will make 8 sandwiches.
  • Use your favorite fillings: cheese and sauce for pizza, peanut butter and jelly, or lunchmeat and cheese.
  • Cool on a paper towel so they don’t get soggy.
  • Freeze wrapped in a paper towel for up to 1 month.

Servings 16 (8 of each flavor)
Author Dorothy Kern

Ingredients

For the PB&J Uncrustables:

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits 8 biscuits, NOT the “flakey” kind
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly or honey optional

For the Pizza Uncrustables:

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits 8 biscuits, NOT the “flakey” kind
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Toppings like pepperoni etc

Instructions

To make the PB&J:

  1. Preheat your waffle maker to medium-high.
  2. Open the can of biscuits and cut each biscuit in half like you’re making a sandwich. Place about 2 teaspoons of peanut butter on one side of the raw biscuit dough. If desired, top with some jam or honey. Place the top raw half of the biscuit on top and pinch the edges to seal. (The sealing is important or peanut butter will leak all over your waffle maker!)
  3. Depending on the size of your waffle maker, cook one sandwich at a time. (My waffle maker is a standard round size and I make one in the center.) Cook about 1-2 minutes until golden. Time will vary depending on your waffle maker, so just watch the first few and see how long they take.
  4. Cool slightly (or completely) before serving. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month. To reheat, simply microwave until warm. You can also toast them to make them crunchy. Or just place a frozen sandwich in a lunch box the night before and it’ll be defrosted by lunch the next day!

  1. To this day, peanut butter and jelly is one of my favorite sandwiches. I don’t mind the crust, but sometimes I just want the soft, bread part of the sandwich! I’m a teacher, so I’m always look for lunches to make in advance! Thanks Dorothy! 😀

  2. Sounds great!

  3. Wow. I had no idea there were PIZZA uncrustables. That look like waffles. That look like the best lunch ever. Your lunch-making skills are obviously better than you let on. My kids get cheese sandwiches or if they’re lucky, microwaved veggie burgers. These are so much better!

  4. Dorothy … I don’t have a waffle maker … is there another way to make these? Hope so! My girl would love these!

  5. I can’t wait to make these! How do you think turkey and cheese would be? This is brilliant!

  6. Love this PIZZA UNCRUSTABLE, chicken and beef are two of my favorate things, so i would love this recipe, it’s exactly what i will try tonight. Thank for sharing

  7. MMMmmm, looks so good. It will be something I will try.
    Thank for sharing!
