Made them with leftover chicken parmesan and they were great! The kids loved them. I will definitely make them again.
I make them with 2 tortillas and bake as hot as my oven gets for 8 minutes. No need to preheat the pan, just the oven. Small tortillas in a 9 inch pan, large burrito size in a 12 inch pan. Since there is a double layer I can load it up and it will take all the toppings without collapsing. I like sliced tomato, mushrooms, sausage, basil and cheese.
These are so easy to make, and quickly cures my pizza cravings. I did switch it up and used corn tortillas to make it gluten-free.
I have been making pizzas with tortillas for years now. I love thin, crispy crusts. Plus it is so easy & quick to make in a toaster oven. My favorite is ham & barbeque pizza, where I spread barbeque sauce, instead of pizza sauce, over the tortilla, then put some cut up lunch ham (or leftover ham) & sprinkle with mozarella cheese. But I have also made tortilla pizzas with pizza sauce & put a small amount of meat & some veggies on it with cheese. All kinds of varieties!
Lovely recipe. I am going to make it today in the evening for snacks. I am sure my little one will love it. Thanks dear :)
Oh yes, I also do something like a pizza with flour tortillas. I do it with meat and spices…yumm :)
So fun to see that (at least) two others came up with the same name for these that our family thought we made up: Pizzadilla! (We thought about Tortizza, but it didn’t sound right.)
We usually make ours in the oven, but this is a much better idea. We use jarred pasta sauce if we don’t have homemade on hand, feta, spinach, red and yellow peppers, mushrooms, onions – whatever is on hand that sounds good. Thanks for the skillet idea – much more energy efficient that firing up the oven, especially in the summer!
Great idea. I made them for dinner tonight, trying to clean out the fridge/freezer before a road trip. I used some homemade sauce from the freezer, turkey sausage, and from our garden, fresh fennel and fresh basil. I used a mix of cheeses I had on hand. Perfecto! Thanks for the inspiration!!
We make these as a one pan dinner when camping except that we use 2 torts, one each top and bottom and cook on both sides. You can prep a couple. By flipping them both torts get crispy (the trick is in flipping without having them fall apart, I slide them out onto a plate and then use the plate and pan together to flip. We call them Pizza Quesadillas.
We make this with regular pizza toppings and fold the tortilla in half – fry on both sides and call them Pizzadillas.
We’ve been making this kind of pizza for a long time …. we love them. We mostly make ours with refried beans and onions with melted cheese on top.
Thanks for the tip about putting the cheese on first I believe this will make them even tastier.
My kids use tortlla’s for all kinds of things but never pizza. I can’t wait to show them this little trick. ;)
This is a wonderful supper. I make these on a pizza stone in my mini-oven using the same ingredients. I also use pieces of sausage, onion, pepper and the like making them into full pizzas. One word of caution: it is good if you process the sausage, pepper, onion and the like in the microwave for a minute or two, then add them to the pizza. Makes for a much better tasting pie.
So as a Family & Consumer Science teacher (home ec) I use tortillas for pizzas, breakfast burritos, quesadillas, and tacos – the students love creating their own toppings and flavors.
Love the idea of a french toast style tortilla – gonna have to try that one out on the students!
Simple, healthy snacks that do not break the budget are always a hit! or as my students tell me “banging and slamming”!
So simple, so easy, so round. Made them tonight for dinner for the five of us. Had everything on hand–but used pizza sauce instead of plain tomato sauce.
I’ve been enjoying Simply Recipes for a few years now, and generally just lurk; but you are my go-to cooking site when I’m trying to figure out dinner for one night or plan for the week.
I’ve always made these, but fold it in half at the end and call it a “pizzadilla.”
I remember those English Muffin pizzas! My girlfriend’s Mom would top the lightly toasted muffin with warmed undiluted tomato soup and lay a slice of American cheese on top and broil it. As a kid, I thought it was heavenly! I passed by the muffins and used the tortillas when my kids were growing up. I made a light cheese quesadilla as the base so it would be sturdier, then topped it with the usual pizza sauce and toppings…so much better than the muffin based pizza.
I like making the tortilla pizzas in my toaster oven too. I often put it on broil for the last little bit to make the cheese golden. I like topping mine with BBQ sauce, chicken & mozzarella cheese. My other favorite topping is spinach dip with mozzarella cheese and sometimes chicken!
I’d forgotten these. My grandchildren are coming for two weeks.They will love these. Can’t wait for “May we have some more please” in their cute English accents.
