Easy Tortilla Pizzas – 3 Ways!

The holidays are almost upon us! Are you getting excited? I definitely am. I’m especially looking forward to hauling out my Christmas decorations this weekend.

With all the fun and festive distractions at this time of year, I like to keep dinner fairly simple. Tortilla pizzas are one of my favorite easy meals. They are light, fresh, and take minutes to prepare. What could be better?

Easy Tortilla Pizzas - 3 Ways | Hello Little HomeHere are three of my favorite ways to top tortilla pizzas. Experiment with your own combinations, too. Anything goes!

Tomato-Basil Tortilla Pizzas | Hello Little HomeTomato-Basil Tortilla Pizzas

Ingredients:

  • 4 8-inch flour tortillas
  • Olive oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Crushed red pepper flakes, optional
  • 8 oz. fresh mozzarella (not water-packed)
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 8 medium basil leaves, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Add crushed red pepper flakes, if using.

Pull mozzarella apart with your hands into medium-size pieces and top each tortilla with a quarter of the cheese. It’s OK if the mozzarella doesn’t completely cover the tortilla. Top cheese with tomatoes.

Place baking sheet in oven and cook until tortilla edges are lightly browned and cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Top each pizza with sliced basil, cut into quarters, and serve.

    Thanks for the ideas! I’m always looking for new pizza topping ideas. We have pizza every Friday night. In fact, I just blogged about my crust recipe! We love ham and pineapple, sausage and mushroom, fresh basil and tomatoes, and macaroni and cheese!
