Hodder Family Homemade Tortilla Pizzas

When my dad was little, he would eat tortillas pizzas for dinner every once in a while. Since they were so easy, fun, and delicious, my brother and I ended up also making them for dinner ever so often. Although these pizzas aren’t professionally made, or a well known brand bought in the super market, they are still what I used to want to eat for every single of my birthday meals. There is something so appealing as a child about designing your own pizza. I used to form my olives in the shape of smily faces or hearts, and secretly add extra cheese behind my parent’s backs.

As my brother and I got older we started making tortilla pizzas less and less and eventually just stopped. Since my mom is now gluten-free, we never order pizza for dinner any more because we have not yet found an edible gluten-free pizza that doesn’t come from a fancy restaurant…. and who can live without pizza?!?! I definitely can’t. Soooo, last weekend, the idea popped in my head that maybe we could have a tortilla pizza night and my parents loved the idea. The pizzas were delicious (even my mom’s gluten free one) and I immediately knew that I this important recipe HAD to be posted. Try it and you’ll definitely know what I’m talking about. ENJOY!


Makes 1 personal pizza.


1 large tortilla of any kind (white, whole wheat, gluten-free etc.)

8oz can of pizza sauce

3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

3 tbsp parmesan cheese

Topping of choice (olive, pepperoni, mushroom, tomato, etc)

1 tsp fresh basil cut into thin strips.

1/2 tsp dried oregano.

1/8 tsp garlic powder



*All quantities can be adjusted based on personal preference.

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F.
  2. Toss the parmesan cheese into the mozzarella until evenly distributed throughout.
  3. Place a tortilla on a baking sheet. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on the tortillas, leaving a boarder around the edges.
  4. Sprinkle about the cheese mixture evenly on top of the sauce. Top with fresh basil, oregano, garlic powder and toppings of your choice.
  5. Bake until cheese is completely melted and edges are golden brown. This will be around 8 minutes, but cooking time varies depending on the quantities of toppings, so be sure to keep and eye on it.
  6. Repeat for additional pizzas.
