Tortilla Pizza is a great alternative to a traditional pizza, at the moment it is one of our “go to” if we are looking for something that is quick and easy but still tastes great. A typical pizza base is around 1092 calories, where as a 10” Flour Tortilla Wrap is only 218 calories. Since you are replacing the dough base with a Tortilla Wrap, it makes it a healthier alternative.
The great thing is, you can still use whatever toppings you want. These Tortilla pizzas are great to just snack on, as a canapés for a dinner party or perfect for lunch/dinner. As I already mentioned they taste great and they only take 10 minutes to make.Print

Tortilla Pizza Recipe – Detailed Step by Step Instructions
Pizza for me is one of my favourite foods, whether you are just looking for a quick dinner or having friends round for a movie or game night. One of the things I love about them, is how you can use whatever toppings you want. You can be as safe or as adventurous as you want to be.
I love a deep crust pizza but having too many of these is not great on my waistline, so I wanted to find a healthier alternative. The most fattening part is the crust, therefore by replacing this with a Tortilla Wrap you are already cutting out the majority of the calories.
I still like to make traditional pizzas, but these Tortilla Pizzas are perfect for when im in a hurry as they only take 10 minutes or when i’m having them as a mid week snack/meal.
Now for this recipe I have decided to make ham and rocket salad, but you are of course free to use whatever toppings you want. Its just important to pre-cook any ingredients that need doing before putting them on the pizza IE meat, mushrooms, onions etc.
The first thing you want to do is preheat your oven at 200 degrees.
Place your Tortilla Wrap onto a baking tray or parchment paper. Next you want to spoon on the sauce and with the back of the spoon, cover the tortilla. I would recommend leaving a gap of ½ inch at the edge of the wrap. (For this recipe I used tomato puree, however you could easily replace this with a homemade pizza sauce.)
You want to sprinkle the cheese evenly around the base, again try to leave a little gap at the edge. If you are making a pizza that doesn’t require cheese then simply skip to adding your toppings.
I then add my toppings to the pizza and place in the centre of the oven and cook this for roughly 10 minutes. Once cooked, remove and place any remaining toppings such as dips, salad, etc.
There you have it, a tasty yet healthy alternative to pizza. I really hope you do like this Tortilla Pizza Recipe, please do comment below on what toppings you had on your pizza and don’t forget to share it with your friends.
