I was jonesing for pizza yesterday. I used those great Mission Brand Carb Balance Whole Wheat 6" Fajita Size Tortillas as my "crust." and created a couple of Tortilla Pizzas. It definitely satisfied my pizza urge.
Place a tortilla on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Top it any way you like. Bake at 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes till the tortilla is crisp and the toppings are bubbly.
One of my creations was topped with pesto sauce, ricotta cheese, sauteed spinach and garlic, sliced tomato, smoked mozzarella, and parmesan. The other with pesto sauce, provolone cheese, parmesan, sliced tomato, and Italian seasoning.
This would be a great way to use up leftovers... grilled chicken, steak, shrimp. The combinations are endless. I used pesto sauce but you could use alfredo sauce, tomato sauce, bbq sauce, hot sauce, salsa. I'm planning on making a Chicken Carbonara tortilla pizza next time I have some leftover grilled chicken. Mmmm with a little alfredo sauce, parmesan, crumbled bacon, and mushrooms. Yummy.
