Tortilla Pizza

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 to rtilla
  • Up to ¼ cup tomato sauce
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • Up to ⅓ cup shredded mozzarella
  • ¼ cup yellow pepper + ¾ cup packed spinach leaves roughly chopped
  • OR
  • 2 tbs feta cheese + ½ cup cooked asparagus spears cut into two inch pieces
  • OR
  • Up to 1 cup toppings of your choice the more toppings, the messier


  1. PREP all your toppings before you start. This recipe moves fast so you need to have everything ready.
  2. TURN on your broiler - if you have a choice of settings, choose the High setting. Adjust a rack in the oven so that the pan will be a few inches from the flame.
  3. HEAT the oil in an oven-safe skillet (cast iron or thick-bottomed stainless steel are good) over high heat. After about 3-5 minutes, when the oil starts shimmering, add the tortilla.
  4. ADD your toppings to the tortilla (cheese that goes off the edges will get extra crispy) and turn off the heat.
  5. BROIL the pizza for five minutes, or until the cheese is melted and brown in spots. Remove it from the oven and use a spatula to transfer it to a plate.

Recipe Notes

This pizza is best when it's hot and fresh so eat it as a quickly as you can (while avoiding roof-of-mouth burns).
