80--- Tortilla Pizzas

If you are familiar with my Grilled Taco Pizza or Sandy Special Flatbread Pizzas, this is not a new concept for you.  Putting pizza toppings onto a tortilla (or flatbread), then baking them in the oven (or grilling them) until the "crust" is crisp.  It is one of my "I had to work late and have NO time to make dinner" meals that happens occasionally.  You can make them really healthy, or not so healthy.

This recipe is a revised version of my Sandy Special pizza, named for my sister-in-law, who owns a pizza joint in Cali.  This is her creation.  And it's fantastic.

Tortilla Pizza (Sandy Style)
Serves 4

(4) 10" flour tortillas
3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
2 tsp minced garlic
1 1/3 cups quartered artichoke hearts (patted dry if canned), separated into smaller pieces
1 1/3 cups baby spinach leaves, stemmed
1 cup sliced onions
1 cup white beans, drained and rinsed well
2 oz crumbled feta cheese
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup jalapeno slices, chopped (optional)
Seasoning salt (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degress.

Heat 1 tsp in a skillet over medium heat.  Add sliced onions and saute until soft, ~5 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside.

On each tortilla, spread 1/2 tsp olive oil.  Sprinkle 1/2 tsp minced garlic onto each tortilla, then spread white beans, artichoke pieces, spinach leaves, sauteed onions, cheeses and jalapenos (if desired) evenly onto tortillas.

Place in oven, directly on middle rack, and bake for 10-14 minutes, or until tortilla is crispy.  Remove from oven and allow to cool for ~2 minutes prior to cutting into quarters and serving.

  2. Oh my gosh, this looks delicious! I've never heard of using tortillas as pizza crust before - that's such an awesome idea. I'm actually not a fan of crust, so I hate wasting the calories on it when I do occasionally have pizza. This is the perfect thing for me! Can't wait to try it :)
