Simple Thin Crust Tortilla Pizza

May 17, 2015

Simple Thin Crust Tortilla PizzaFriends, the next couple weeks just about might do me in. This weekend was “put in the rest of the garden weekend” along with weed management weekend…

…with 5, 4, and 1 year olds…

…And we’ll have a brand new 6 year old in the house with a party to get ready for next weekend, along with all the other kindergarten fun that goes with that! Then there’s the end of the year day trip to camp with 20 kindergarten and first graders that I (willingly) volunteered to chaperone, some end of the year gatherings, blogging commitments to fulfill…

You get the picture.

So I think talking a little pizza is appropriate, no?!

Simple Thin Crust Tortilla PizzaThere is no doubt that fluffy, chewy (gluten free) regular crusted pizza night is fun here and there, but there are just some seasons of life that require quicker prep. These thin crust tortilla pizzas always bring a smile to the kids’ faces. And that makes it totally worth it doesn’t it!?

You can load up these pizzas with your favorite seasonal toppings, or, a lot of the time if I am needing quicker prep I just top it with local pepperoni from the freezer, and chop up a quick salad to serve on the side. I almost always have Ranch, or Caesar, or Italian dressings made up in the fridge so salads go quick.

Simple Thin Crust Tortilla PizzaOk! So here’s to getting through the end of the school year! I am welcoming relaxed, lazy summer days into my house with open arms!

A quick note for my dairy free friends! If you leave off the tomato sauce and cheese, you can load up your tortilla crust with veggies/tomato slices/meat and drizzle olive oil to bake – it is so good that we do this quite often!

And about those tortillas! If you can handle gluten, I would suggest a sprouted wheat tortilla – you can find them at most health food stores in the freezer section. I like to use these rice wrapsor the Sami’s millet wraps. There should also be some sprouted corn tortillas in the freezer section at your health food store that work great too.

Ingredients
  • 3-4 rice wraps (I get mine in the freezer section of our health food store)
  • 1-2 cups organic pizza sauce (I use homemade or a local brand I like to pick up. Even most regular grocery stores will carry organic now - tomatoes are heavily pesticided so that is one I like to stick to organic on)
  • 2 cups raw cheese
  • Toppings of choice
Instructions
  1. Get out a couple baking sheets and place a wire rack in each of them. If you don't have wire racks you can use Silpat or parchment paper but the wire racks keep the crust aerated so they come out crisper.
  2. Place the tortillas on the wire racks and dress up your pizza.
  3. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.

    Yum!! I actually used to make these when my oldest was much younger for quick lunches, but for some reason got out of the habit, not sure why??!! I also used to use sprouted tortillas to make pbj’s–quesadilla style. Yumm!!!! I feel you on the spring busyness–my main garden is about 3/4 of an acre, then I have smaller plots with herbs, squashes strawberries etc. etc. And 4 kids under 6…So a super quick, yummy pizza lunch sounds fantastic for mama!! 😉 thanks for sharing!

    This is a great idea. I love that it is so quick and it is easy to keep your kitchen stocked with the ingredients to make this anytime you want. I am sure the Kindergarteners will be really happy with this.

    I bet this would be excellent made with coconut flour crepes for the grain-free crowd. 🙂
