Tortilla Pizza


This next recipe is one of my favorites that I created, Tortilla Pizza. One day, I was craving some pizza, but didn’t want to order one, so, as I usually have flour tortillas on hand, I decided I’d just throw some sauce and toppings on one and toss it in the oven. I had to play around with the temperature and timing to get it just the way I like (crispy), but now, it’s a staple in my kitchen. I love the fact that it’s obviously very low in carbs and can be made any way that you like, with very few or lots of toppings. It’s amazingly simple and a really nice, quick meal! The one pictured below is simply my pizza sauce, a few different cheeses, sliced tomatoes and caramalized onions (or onion marmalade).

Ingredients

  • 1 flour tortilla (I use medium size)
  • Pizza/pasta sauce to cover tortilla (use according to personal preference)
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese mix
  • 1 Roma tomato, sliced thin
  • Caramelized onions 
  • Parmesean cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Put tortilla on baking sheet.
  3. Spread sauce over tortilla, getting close to the sides.
  4. Sprinkle shredded cheese blend over sauce.
  5. Put tomato slices on top on top of cheese.
  6. Add caramelized onions, using as little or as much as you like.
  7. Sprinkle parmesean cheese over entire pizza.
  8. Bake about 20 minutes, a little longer for crispier crust.

As I mentioned, you can use whatever toppings that suit your fancy. Another favorite combination that I like is using pieces of goat cheese, some sundried tomatoes, fresh mint and fresh basil. Oh so good!

Enjoy!
