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.
- Preheat the oven to 425 F.
- Toss the parmesan cheese into the mozzarella until evenly distributed throughout.
- Place a tortilla on a baking sheet. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on the tortillas, leaving a boarder around the edges.
- Sprinkle about the cheese mixture evenly on top of the sauce. Top with fresh basil, oregano, garlic powder and toppings of your choice.
- 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.
- Repeat for additional pizzas.
