Tortilla Pizza, Ole'!

You are scrounging for something to eat, you didn't go to the grocery store, you are looking for a snack, you don't really want to cook, but you want something hot.  I say Pizza!  Sure, you COULD order a pizza, but you don't have to if you have these three ingredients.  Cheese, Sauce, and Flour Tortillas!

Something most people have in the fridge nowadays are flour tortillas! Tortillas are great for wraps, tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, but they are super awesome as PIZZAS!  I just saw that Goya makes tortillas, so I was curious to try them!  I loved how pliable and soft they are, and they are just the right thickness.  Some store bought tortillas tend to be too thin and dry.  I say go for the Goya!

Next is cheese, now you can use any cheese, but Kraft now has this new Mozzarella with a touch of Philadelphia cream cheese for extra creaminess. I really loved it! You can also find it in cheddar too.

The sauce I used is organic, and because I have never used this brand's Pizza Sauce, I thought I would give it a try! It's very good with a nice tomatoey flavor without being too sweet.

Here's what I had:
Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce
Kraft Mozzarella Cheese (with a touch of Philadelpia)
Goya Tortillas (Burrito size!)
Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
Garlic (optional)


I had it plain.

Pour some olive oil  (about 1/2 tsp) on a cookie sheet or pizza pan.  Grease pan.

Add your Tortilla, spread about a Tablespoon of Sauce and add your cheese about 1/2 cup.
Sprinkle with Salt, Oregano, Pepper
(Add your favorite toppings if you like) 

Bake in a  Preheated 450 Degree Oven for 5-8 Minutes. Check, so it doesn't burn... you want it to cook quickly so you can get a crispy bottom, like thin crust pizza! 

It should look like this!
