Thin-Crust Tortilla Pizza Recipe

Thin-Crust Tortilla Pizza - The Ticking Heart

This thin-crust tortilla pizza recipe is simple to make but packs a punch of flavour and satisfies your hunger. Because the crust is thin, you can load your pizza with any vegetable toppings of your choice to get in your daily recommended serving of vegetables without filling up on carbs. You can also keep it vegetarian or add any meat of your choice.

I started making this pizza when I was experimenting with a gluten-reduced diet almost seven years ago and I have rarely purchased a store-bought pizza since. My husband and I prefer my homemade pizza to most store-bought brands because it’s loaded with healthy vegetables and we don’t have to load up on the carbs to feel full.

The original idea for this pizza came from a recipe I found in a Kraft Canada magazine for a Tortilla Pizza Margherita, which was a pizza made on a tortilla crust topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and slices of tomato. After making the original recipe, I later modified it to make my own version using my mom’s pizza sauce recipe and loaded it with veggies.

Now my husband and I look forward to pizza and movie night every Friday night!

One 10” flour tortilla or pita (any kind)

¼ cup homemade pizza sauce

1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

vegetable toppings of choice, diced or sliced (see topping suggestions below)

Pizza Sauce Directions*

*This recipe makes enough sauce for six pizzas.

  1. Empty a can of Campbell’s condensed tomato soup and a can of Hunt’s garlic tomato paste in a small bowl.

*Tip: I find that any other brand of condensed tomato soup is too thin so I don’t recommend substituting another brand for this recipe. You can use any tomato paste brand, but Hunt’s is the only brand that has garlic added to the paste (and it makes the sauce taste phenomenal, in my opinion). However, you could use a plain tomato paste and add minced garlic to taste, if you wish.

  1. Add one teaspoon each of dried crushed basil and oregano.
  2. Mix well.

*Tip: If not using right away, store sauce in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to a week. For longer storage, divide sauce into small containers (approximately ¼ cup each) and freeze for later use.

Pizza Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

2. Spread pizza sauce evenly on one side of the tortilla. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese, as much or as little as desired.

4. Place on pizza pan and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. If you want the toppings crisped, broil for an additional 1-2 minutes after cooking.

*Note: You can place pizza directly on the rack, but I have found that the sides tend to droop and toppings will slide off onto the bottom of the oven during cooking which can cause smoking. I prefer to use a pizza pan so I don’t have to clean the oven as often or deal with the fire alarm when it goes off.

5. Once cooked, slice into 6-8 pizza slices and serve on plates. The tortilla crust doesn’t crisp on the bottom if cooked on a pizza pan, so this pizza may need to be eaten with a knife and fork instead of being picked up by hand.

6. Top with grated parmesan cheese and diced green onions (optional).
