Midweek Pizza Porn

When I just don't want to cook or I have lots of stuff going on. The old standby Tortilla Pizza is my best friend. They taste great, are super quick (prep to munching in 15 minutes flat), and they make the best food porn!

Here's the latest creations:

Sauteed onions, sun dried tomatoes, ricotta cheese, pesto, Italian Seasoning, provolone and a liberal snowfall of parmesan


and

Meatball, provolone, pesto, ricotta cheese, fresh tomato, Italian Seasoning and a liberal snowfall of parmesan



Some commonly asked Tortilla Pizza Q's and A's:

What type of tortillas do you use? I use Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Fajita Size Tortilla. Here's the nut info on them.

How do you make them? Temperature? Preheat oven to 375 degrees. I put 1 drop literally of olive oil on the cookie sheet and spread it around. Place tortilla on cookie sheet. Spread pesto or marinara or Alfredo or whatever sauce on the tortilla. Put a slice of cheese on top of that (I like provolone) and then any combination of toppings or leftovers I can find bumping around the fridge. Sprinkle with parmesan. Pop in oven. 10 minutes exactly. **Do not let them sit. Pop them in the oven right away or the toppings will make the tortilla soggy versus the yummy crispy porn pictured above.

Do you eat the whole thing? Sometimes. I am 19 months out so I can obviously eat a bit more than someone 4 months out but it really depends on the day, what my pouch has to say, what toppings are on top (chicken, meatballs aka dense protein versus plain cheese). Also I use the fajita size tortillas (6") not the typical tortilla size (10"). Though if you come over I promise I will share.

Here's a ton of Eggface tortilla pizza porn

Your pizzas look sooooo good! I just wish I could find the WW tortillas you use. Nowhere to be found around here :-(

Hey btc, TY. Here's the product locator from the Mission web site. Hope it helps:

A pal of mine uses a product called Flat Out Wraps which are similar in nut value (bigger though)

I used it and went to the store it indicated, but they only had regular tortillas, not low carb. But the store had another low carb brand so I bought it. I'm sitting here eating your chicken pesto provolone pizza - OMG! I can't believe what I've been missing. My husband would love this! Too bad, he's at a meeting tonight.
You're the best!

A friend gave me a good "low carb" pizza recipe today. Brown ground beef (low fat content) drain excess fat. Add diced onion, tomatoe and bell pepper if desired. Simmer together and then cover with mozzarella cheese. Remove from heat and cut like a pizza. He calls it 'Skillet Pizza', I am going to try it soon, thought you might enjoy.
