Easy Tortilla Pizza

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Rather than using a prepared pizza crust or crust mix this recipe calls for extra-large flour tortilla shells. It was originally created as a means of using left over flour tortillas from a burrito or taco dinner. While it may not be traditional pizza, the results are delicious nonetheless.

Our pizza was made with fresh tomatoes, garlic, herbs and cheese, but of course, you could add any toppings you’d like.

Tortilla pizzas are great for get-togethers, parties and as after school or weekend snacks. Because they can be made in the oven, microwave or in a skillet kids can prepare their own. Simply provide them with pre-cooked, chopped toppings and let them take it from there.


  • 2 extra-large flour tortillas
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped (or 1 tsp. pre-minced garlic that comes in a jar)
  • 1 c. diced tomato
  • 8 fresh basil leaves, sliced thin in strips (or 2 tsp. dried or crushed)
  • 1½ c. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ c. parmesan cheese
  • Olive oil to drizzle over the top
  • Salt and pepper to taste



Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place tortilla shell on a pizza stone or baking sheet. Add 1 cup mozzarella cheese, spreading evenly.

Place a second tortilla shell on top. This will be used as the base for the pizza.

Thinly slice basil leaves and place them in a medium size bowl.

Next add the parmesan cheese & remaining mozzarella the bowl.

Peel and mince garlic & chop the tomatoes. Add them to the bowl.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Mix well.

Spread the mixture on top of tortilla base.

Sprinkle olive oil over the top of the finished pizza.

And bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or until the cheese is melted.

Slice and serve while it is warm.
