Tortilla Pizza

pizzaI have a recipe for you.

It’s so simple and delicious, you’ll probably want to make it, like, every day. I mean you totally can, if you want to. Because you get to make it how you want.

Veggies? Sure! Chicken? Go for it! Anchovies?… Well, if that’s you’re thing.

My favorite is just plain cheese.

I call this the Tortilla Pizza. You’re welcome.

Go ahead–try it. (DISCLAIMER: I cannot be held liable for any resulting addiction.)

Active Time: Approximately 5 minutes
Total Time:
 Approximately 15 minutes
Serves: 1


  • 1 Medium Whole Wheat Tortilla
  • A base sauce (Pizza Sauce, Pesto, BBQ Sauce…)
  • Your favorite shredded or grated cheese
  • Your favorite toppings (optional)

What to do: Heat a skillet on low-medium heat while you prepare your pizza. Spread the base sauce over the tortilla, leaving about 1/4-inch bare edges. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the sauce, totally covering the sauce (or almost–it doesn’t have to be perfect). If you’re adding toppings, they go on now. Be sure to keep it kind of light; remember, the “crust” is just a thin tortilla and you don’t want it to collapse under the weight of your toppings. Once your pizza is decked out and the skillet is heated, place the pizza in the skillet. Heat it for about 5-10 minutes, or until the tortilla is crisp and the cheese is melty. Remove from heat; cut into slices. Add freshly-grated Parmesan, if you wish. Enjoy!

  1. Takes me back, this is an old time favorite. Only one difference and that is I made them on pita bread.
