Tortilla Crust Pizza

This recipe is perfect for a snack or light meal. If you're having a party, you can lay out a variety of toppings and have each guest build their own pizza.

  • 2 tablespoons pizza sauce, or spaghetti sauce, or pesto
  • 6 tablespoons shredded mozzarella or Italian-blend cheese
  • 1 soft taco (6-inch size) wheat tortilla

Optional toppings:

  • Thinly sliced pepperoni
  • Thinly sliced salami
  • Thinly sliced mushrooms
  • Sliced olives
  • Julienned bell peppers (red, yellow, orange, or green)
  • Thinly sliced tomatoes or oil-packed sun dried tomatoes


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spread sauce over tortilla, sprinkle cheese on top.
  3. Place desired topping atop pizza, being careful not to put too many toppings, or the tortilla won't be able to support the weight.
  4. Bake directly on oven rack,* until cheese is melted and toppings are cooked.

Makes 1 serving.
