As I’m prepping for grad school, I want to think of all the potential recipes I can try at home (trial and error, hehe) and bring along with me when I’m living on my own for the first time! I’ve seen many recipes for using tortilla skins for things other than quesadillas or wraps, and I’ve always wanted to try the multipurpose route… so why not try using it for pizza and make a tortizza? (and if you’re wondering, yes, it’s legit, I looked it up after combining the words to see if I just created a new word for the dictionary LOL)
Here are the ingredients I used, but feel free to go outside the box and use as many toppings as you want for yours!
- pasta sauce (garlic and herb)
- pepperoni slices
- flour tortilla skins
- red pepper flakes
- dried oregano
- garlic and pepper seasoning
Making a tortizza is literally one of the easiest recipes you can do…it took less than 2 minutes of prep time, and 5 minutes of cook time (more if you want your skin to be more crisp!). Here were my steps:
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Lay out your tortilla skin and spread out as much tomato sauce as you want (the more, the merrier AND tastier ;))
- Add your toppings and get creative!
- Pop them into the oven on a baking sheet, pizza tray, or just on aluminum foil itself for about 5 minutes or until you’re satisfied with your “crust” crispiness.
Let me tell you, I was itching to try this out for over a month now, and I am SO glad I did! It came out even better than I imagined it to be and I think it’s a super simple dinner idea if you’re short on time or just really tired after school or work! If you don’t have an oven, you can easily place your tortizza onto a pan over the stove and heat until your tortilla skin starts to crisp and the cheese is melted 🙂
This is a great idea for when you want to have guests over, or if you want to cook with your family but want something easy to make! It also makes for a cute date night idea ^_^ HAVE FUN and go wild with your toppings!
