Alright cheaters, get on your reading glasses and get ready to save this little baby to your favourites, because you are not going to want to miss this one! This cheat is one of my absolute all time favourite cheats! It is insanely simple, comes out amazingly delicious, looks out of this world yummy, you can cater it to your own personal taste, aaand it is perfect for entertaining. I am talking about the Tortilla Pizza. Just like a great thin crust pizza, the Tortilla Pizza sure does hit the spot. My Tortilla Pizza is inspired by my favourite pizza restaurant (Torroni anyone?), that always uses fresh ingredients to pull out high quality, authentic Italian pizzas. No, a pizza with a tortilla crust isn't exactly authentic. But I promise you, once you have added your favourite ingredients to your tortilla, you will be convinced that you should open your very own pizza parlor. This week I made two Tortilla Pizzas for myself, putting on the following ingredients for the first pizza:
- olive oil
- tomato sauce
- mozzarella cheese
- fresh Ontario tomato slices
- dried oregano
- red pepper flakes
- nicoise olives
- ribbons of fresh basil
For the second pizza, I simply added some prosciutto slices to the above ingredients. Creating this delicious pizza only took about 5 minutes in total! Think about how great your next party or get together would be serving up your very own Tortilla Pizzas! Simply make a pizza topping bar, allowing your guests to add whatever they want to their tortilla. Pop them into the oven for a few minutes, and your you're good to go!
Tip: Use whole wheat tortillas to bump up the health factor.
Tip: Try adding a little tomato paste for a little concentrated sweet tomato flavour.
Tip: To add extra flavour, grill your pizzas on the barbeque.
