Thin Crust Tortilla Pizza

26 Sep

Instead of a WIAW post this week, because yesterday would have looked very similar to last week’s eats, I decided to just document our dinner, tortilla pizzas.

We had volleyball at 6 last night so I needed something easy, fast, and somewhat healthy but was really feeling like pizza.

One of the only ways I make homemade pizza anymore is by using tortillas. David and I don’t always agree on what kind of pizza we should make if we make it homemade so this way we can both have whatever we want on ours! I also love thin crust pizza. I have to admit, I really love any type of pizza though…

Making homemade pizza this way is not only healthier but also easy.

Start off by preheating your oven to 400 degrees.

Put your tortillas on a pizza stone or baking sheet. My mom got us this Pampered Chef pizza and it is one of David’s favorite kitchen cookware. It makes amazing pizzas and cookies. And if you want them REALLY crispy, you can lightly spray some Pam Cooking Spray on the tortillas.

Place the tortillas into the oven for a few minutes, flipping once. This will make your tortillas crispier so the longer you put them in, the crispier they will get.

Take them out once they are slightly crispy and spread on your pizza sauce. We had leftover pizza ingredients from our anniversary weekend’s pudgy pies so we had pizza squeeze to use up, but you can use whatever you’d like.

Next, add your toppings. This could be pepperoni, diced ham, sausage, chicken, and whatever veggies you’d like and then top it all off with mozzarella cheese. David is a big fan of barbeque chicken pizza so sometimes he does barbeque sauce instead of pizza sauce. One of my favorite pizzas is margherita pizza so I did sliced tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella cheese on mine. I also added some cale and red and green peppers that I had left to use up. And I couldn’t help but throw on some pepperoni as well.

Once you get your toppings and cheese on the tortillas, put the pan back in the oven for 10 minutes or so until the cheese is slightly brown.

We got some great looking spinach in our CSA box last week so we had some side salads to go with our pizzas.

They were perfectly crispy and cheesy!
