A 5-minute healthy lunch idea: tortilla pizzas

I’ve been buying Stacy’s Organic Tortillas in bulk lately and using them primarily for making sandwich wraps. The kids love the wraps and they worked well in their camp lunches this summer and in school lunches for Ava in kindergarten. I admit I enjoy them myself as well.

However, I may have found a new use for the tortillas that I love even more than the wraps. Thanks to my friend Melissa, I am now making 5-minute tortilla pizzas! I know I said they were for lunch, but I’ve made them for dinner too on those nights I need a quick meal.

5-minute tortilla pizzas

– Tortilla (white flour, wheat flour, whatever you desire)
– Cheese (shredded mozzarella, goat cheese, soy cheese, whatever you prefer)
– Sauce (store-bought tomato sauce is easy, but so is homemade canned sauce – provided you made it prior to this, pesto works well too)
– Optional: additional toppings. I would make sure they are already cooked and don’t add too many or it could affect the quality of the pizza. Also, because the crust is very thin (it’s a tortilla after all), you don’t want to weigh it down with an overload of toppings.

Lay a tortilla on a pizza pan, cookie sheet or baking stone. (I recommend only one tortilla per pan unless two fit well. They didn’t cook as evenly when I tried to put two on one cookie sheet.)
Spread a thin layer or sauce on tortilla. (Add additional toppings if desired. Remember, don’t add much or it will weigh down your tortilla too much.)
Sprinkle with cheese. (The kids can totally help out with making these too, though that might add a little extra time to the preparation.)

Put in oven under broiler until cheese melts. This only takes a few minutes so definitely keep an eye on it.

Remove from oven, let cool, slice and serve or save to pack in a school lunch the next day.

The kids love them and so do I. Easy, peasy and oh so cheesy! ;) Thanks again, Mel!
