This is a major throwback to when I was a kid and then later in college when I wanted to act like I knew what I was doing. I could really score on the babes with my skills in the kitchen and these tortilla pizzas were always a charmer. In fact you could always tell if I wasnt interested in you if I suggested we go out to eat (well maybe you didnt know but I knew) anyway seriously who doesnt like melted cheese, sauce and a crust.
Take whatever flour tortilla you have on hand - homemade is best but any will do and cover it in tomato sauce, I use the one with spanish flavors which means it has a little pepper and garlic.
Put a little extra garlic powder and oregano to kick it up a bit.
Layer whatever cheese you want, I used a mix of provolone and mozzarella. Five hundred degree oven on a pizza stone and they are done in 5 minutes.
Let cool, slice and repeat. Look how massive my cutter looks next to this ten inch pizza. Its easy to eat about three or four of these and they are great for kids to make and eat - my son chowed through 4 himself. Really tasty, super thin crust from the tortilla lends itself so perfectly to crisping up as a mini-pizza. Give it a whirl.
