Crispy Tortilla Pizza (25 Min, Vegetarian)

As we pointed out a few days ago when we released our Melted Feta Bake, the best way of eating well and staying healthy isn’t to follow the latest trends and life-changing diets (lose 400kg in just two days!), but to adapt yourself to an overall healthier intake.

Robbing yourself of your favourite foods isn’t always the answer either – you’ll end up with ever-growing cravings and very possibly a huge binge on said forbidden fruit (if only it was actually fruit).

Take the pizza. One of the world’s favourite meals, easy to make, easy to bake, and most definitely tasty. But unfortunately loaded with carbs, calories and fat, and often very few benefits in tow.

But we all love a good pizza, and I for one won’t be going without. Which means it’s time to make it better for us.

So…a thinner base and less cheese sounds like a good start. A tortilla makes the perfect replacement, and tastes great too.

A single ball of mozzarella will do for four as well, so that’s the cheese sorted. You can even make your own salsa – cheaply and in five minutes for a delicious base.

Bung on your favourite toppings and voila! You’re done. As is the tortilla pizza.

  1. I love using tortillas as a pizza base too – and baking them extra crispy to balance off the black beans and corn we top them with – yes, clack beans are a fav of mine – and so are bacon and eggs! 🙂

  2. I’m all about pizza these days. Luckily here in Napoli pizza is always rather thin (except the edge, oops). Like you, I always add cheese sparingly. Great tips!

    What a great recipe! Why didn’t I think of that myself?

    The tortillas are perfect as the base. You don’t have to mix and roll the dough (which is the most work). That way you safe a lot of time and still end up with a gourmet pizza!

  4. Are you all stating corn or flour tortillas?

  5. Can’t wait to try this later tonight! I am thinking it is going to be amazing!

  6. What is oven temp

  7. 5 stars
    Hello there! just made this crispy tortilla pizza and am NOT disappointed. It came out delicious!! I added jalapenos on top for a little kick. Thanks SO much for this cheap, easy-to-make recipe!
    Also to answer your questions….
    1. I cannot live without sushi
    2. My favorite pizza topping is ham and pineapple (don’t sue me) and vegetarian
    3. I’d love to share a pizza with Quentin Tarantino lol

    • Hi Ellie! Haha no worries, no suing from us :D. Great answers, especially Tarantino. That would be awesome. Really glad you enjoyed the pizza so much!!
