  1. Hey Amy :) Using whole wheat pita bread is a great easy pizza crust too :) Thanks for the reminder though, my kids love making homemade pizzas for lunch and have been using refrigerated biscuit dough to do it lately, but that takes a lot longer.

  2. what a great quick and fabulous lunch idea. do they sell those tortillas at vitamin cottage? where do i get them? could I use regular tortillas or are they not organic? sorry, i’m just learning all about organic eating and crunchy, you seem to know the best on organics. i tell everyone i know at my daughter’s play group about your blog, crunchy. i get a lot of teasing from them because they say i should spend more time with my family than on the blog! i guess i need balance, but with ideas like these, i just can’t stop reading…. thanks again, crunchy!

  3. A,
    Thanks for posting this! I love food ideas!! :)

    Jennifer, do you just use a basic biscuit dough? How long do you put it in the fridge and do you just roll it out in to two small pizzas? I make biscuits quite frequently but never thought to make it into a pizza.

    A, another thing I do w/ the tortillas for a fairly quick meal is do a mexican pizza. Add refried beans instead of sauce (you could mix some salsa in if you wanted) and top w/ whatever you want. I do olives (you could obviously buy the sliced olives so you could save time) and mushrooms or whatever. They are super yummy. THEN if you wanted to take more time and add more fat ;) you can fry the tortilla to make a crunchy mexican pizza. Oh so good but definitely not as healthy. hee hee

    And lastly, does Ava like them in her lunch? I’m so running out of lunch ideas and need some more! I was wondering if C would like them since they’d be cold by the time he ate them. Does she? Thanks again!!

    barbara – here’s a link to where you can buy stacy’s tortillas – http://www.staceysorganic.com/buy.htm
    the tortillas don’t have to be organic to be used in this recipe.

    brandy – yes, ava will eat them cold in her lunch, but she’s generally not picky about food at all. not to say that creed is, but ava will eat anything. ;) now that u mention it, i have made mexican pizzas like that before too w/ corn tortillas.


  5. Dreena Burton has a hummus tortilla pizza in one of her cookbooks… I’m usually lazy and just brush olive oil on mine and pile on the veggies. still good!

  6. I used to do this a lot when I was younger. I have finally found a good source for tortillas I may have to do it again. :)

  7. we just press the biscuit dough out flat instead of baking them first. Once they’re flat we put on sauce and pepperoni and cheese and it will rise a little bit when you bake it.

  8. We make these all the time – especially for playdates – with pita bread from the farmers market. My kids LOVE it!

  9. Yum! Thanks for this, I’m saving it to make for the kids later this week. :)

  10. I use tortillas for pizza too – it was a weight watchers tip.

    I like preheating my pizza stone in a 425 oven and then sliding the pizzas onto the hot stone. The tortilla crust gets very crispy using this method. I bake them for anywhere from 6-10 minutes depending on the toppings.

  11. Okay, must be a global convergence of some sort because I made these for my kids last night–and I thought I was being original! They loved it. I used the smaller tortilla shells and baked them in the toaster oven. Quick, easy and a big hit!

  12. I never thought about blogging this. Glad your kids like them – still a big hit with my son – several times a week!

  13. Best recipe ever! Just made them and they are EASY, and taste good. Plus, my picky eater, who usually doesn’t like pizza, loved that I could only put a tiny bit of sauce on his pizza. We have enough left over for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe! :-)

  15. What a great idea!!! Will have to give this a go some time. Thanks for sharing. I heart easy peasy recipes. :p You’re lasagna tonight looked incredible. Way to go!



  16. What a wonderful idea! Looks delish and easy:)
    I have some ingredients for pizza, but I’m too lazy to make dough – this is an awesome solution.

  17. I always made these on pita–it is not only quick and healthy, it uses up whatever you have lying around!

  18. I buy Stacy’s sometimes too, but the tortilleria at Boulder Farmer’s Market is certified organic now too and their tortillas are MUCH better!

    I make these for the kiddos all the time for their school lunches and another option is to put refried beans on instead of the sauce and some black olives for topping. Then I give them a little cup of guacamole or sour cream to dip and they’re happy as clams!
