Tortilla Pizza & a Review

The other day I found myself with 15 minutes to put dinner together, I was really wishing I could order in but as we all know GF and ordering in doesn’t really go hand in hand. I opened the fridge and stared at the contents and then I saw my favorite GF tortillas. La Tortilla Factory Ivory Teff Wraps are fantastic. They hold together like wheat tortillas (just zap them in your microwave for 20 seconds before using) and taste great. I get mine at Lee & Dad’s IGA and they are located near the produce. We always have these on hand. My friend Wendy mentioned they do tortilla pizzas and it was time to give it a try. It’s fast, simple, and yummy.

Tortilla Pizza

GF tortillas
1 T garlic flavored olive oil
Pizza sauce
Pizza toppings (pepperoni, bacon, black olives, mushrooms, peppers, etc)
Mozzarella Cheese shredded
Cheddar/Jack Cheese shredded

Preheat oven to 350F. Lay out tortillas (I made two tortilla pizzas but next time I’ll make 3 or 4, we didn’t quite have enough for 4 of us) and drizzle olive oil on top. Spread evenly over the tortilla. Spread the pizza sauce over the tortilla then put pizza toppings on the sauce. Top with mozzarella cheese and cheddar/jack cheese. Put in the oven for 12-15 minutes until the cheese is melted.

This makes a nice crisp thin crust, it was fantastic. Note that I did bake this in the top oven (I have a double oven and love it) and it turns out much better than in the big bottom oven.

  1. I made tortilla pizzas for years, but stopped when I became gluten sensitive. I've struggled to find this brand of tortillas where we look, but after seeing your post, I am inspired to look harder. :)
