Thin Crust Pizza...using Tortillas as a base



Thin Crust Pizza...using Tortillas as a base. Pizza, Pizza, Pizza! Who doesn't like Pizza?
This pizza is so easy to make and it requires very little time to prepare. It is an ideal snack, appetizer or even light lunch for people on the go. It has become my husband's favorite pizza! The neat thing about this pizza is that you can get as creative as you want. You can make a cheese, a vegetarian, a meat lovers , or even a combo pizza. How about a gourmet pizza using high quality ingredients (various cheeses and meats)? Pizza margherita a favorite of mine...basil, cheese and thinly sliced tomatoes....yummm! Hope you enjoy...

Note: Sometimes I overload my pizzas...but it's nice to go minimal on the toppings, so that the tortillas don't get soggy.

You will need:
2 burrito size flour tortillas...or soft taco size
cheese (you can experiment here with all sorts of cheeses or stick to mozzarella)
olive oil about (1 TBS) + more for drizzling on top
a pinch of kosher salt
small amount of sauce, optional*
*a paste-like tomato sauce or BBQ sauce...not watery( so cook it down a bit if need be)

Various Toppings:
diced bell pepper
onion, diced
sliced mushrooms
chopped tomatoes
thinly sliced ham, chicken, sausage or any meat
sliced olives, etc.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 500 degs.

1. Brush both tortillas with some olive oil on both sides. Place some parchment paper on a baking sheet.
2. Take one brushed tortilla and place on parchment paper. Sprinkle with about 1- 2 TBS of cheese.
3. Place the second tortilla on top. Sprinkle with cheese add toppings. Drizzle some olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt. 4. Bake for 6-7 minutes at 500 degs. Take out and cut with pizza cutter.
