So, 5 o’clock rolled around and I didn’t even realize it. Usually, we’re all sitting at the dinner table at that point and eating. But, since I had been preping my bathroom for painting that I was going to do the next day, I lost track of time. With everyone hungry, I had to think quickly.
We had tortillas from the night before when I made hummus, and my husband Googled “simple pizza sauce” and found a fantastic recipe, and the tortilla pizza was born.
They were a really big hit, and we’re made them a few times now and are in love with how quickly they are to make and how good they taste.
1 30cm (1 foot) Flour Tortilla
1/4 Cup Pizza Sauce (see recipe bellow)
100 grams hard Goat Cheese*, shredded
Preheat oven with a pizza stone to 250°C (482°F).
Place your tortilla on a hard surface that’s large enough for the entire tortilla. Pour pizza sauce in the center of the tortilla and spread in a circular pattern until you’ve almost reached the edge of the tortilla. Sprinkle with all the cheese.
Slide the tortilla pizza onto the pizza stone and bake for 2.5 – 5 minutes (5 minutes is crispier). Remove carefully – try sliding it off with a fork onto a cutting board and cut into slices.
Makes 1 serving.
*I used goat cheese because my son can only eat dairy-free, but you can easily replace this with mozzarella.
