Tortilla Pizza For Two

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’m sharing my tortilla pizza for two because sometimes you just want a slice of pizza, right? Here’s the deal, it’s easy to stock small jars of pizza sauce or make your own homemade sauce. It’s all about convenience for me, I store about 12 jars that are 14 ounces each.

You could also thin some tomato paste with a little water and add some Italian Seasoning with some Garlic Powder instead of buying the pizza sauce jars at the store.

Mozzarella Cheese

Please stock Mozzarella shredded cheese, I freeze it and remove what I need when a recipe calls for it. It’s great for pizza, lasagna, and so many casseroles. Then you have it available when you need it.

Can I make tortilla pizza ahead of time?

While it’s best to enjoy tortilla pizza immediately after baking for optimal crispness, you can prepare the toppings ahead of time for convenience. When ready to eat, assemble the pizza with the toppings and bake it in the oven for a few minutes to warm through and melt the cheese.

What are some suggested toppings for tortilla pizza?

The toppings for tortilla pizza are incredibly versatile. You can use classic pizza toppings like tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, peppers, and olives. Feel free to get creative and experiment with different ingredients to suit your taste.

How do I prevent the tortilla from getting soggy?

To prevent the tortilla from getting soggy, you can lightly brush it with olive oil before adding the sauce and toppings. This creates a barrier between the tortilla and the sauce, helping to maintain its crispness.

How do I make the tortilla crispy?

To achieve a crispy tortilla crust, preheat your oven to a high temperature (425°F) = (218°C) and place the tortilla directly on the oven rack or a baking sheet. This will help crisp up the tortilla as it bakes.

  1. Much fancier version of the bachelor pizzas I still make occasionally to this day. I use Ragu pasta sauce, American cheese and whatever bread product I have laying around – English muffins, bagels, even just white bread in a pinch. Toast the bread product, cover with pasta sauce, cover that with American cheese, then put a thin smear of pasta sauce on the cheese to prevent burning. Broil until cheese is melty. Easy way to use up leftovers and still kind of tasty.

    But I’ll definitely try your version at some point too. Thanks!

  2. 5 stars
    We make these at our house too! The grandkids like to make their own, and I get the toppings out and they have at it. We also like to use English muffins for the crust. So good and easy.

  3. I love these! I sometimes make a few pizza crusts for the freezer as well as tortillas and assorted prepped ingredients ready to assemble in a variety of ways. Bell peppers freeze easily and don’t get too soggy when thawed, and I almost always have frozen cubed ham or cooked ground beef in resealable freezer bags ready to use. I don’t usually bother shredding cheese, I just freeze it in smaller portions and when it thaws out it’s easy to crumble as needed. Not quite the same but a heck of a lot easier and it will melt down nicely if you crumble it small enough. Shopping the freezer for quick last minute meal inspirations is easy.

    1. Hi Alice, oh I like your idea of having the crusts ready to go and the ingredients as well in the freezer. I love having some meals in the freezer to throw together at the last minute. Great tip! Linda
