80--- Simple Smoked Salmon Tortilla Pizzas

It's been a while since I made a new tortilla pizza.  This one is loaded with healthy fats.

Omega-3's are powerful antioxidants that we should all eat more of.

Salmon, as you know, is a wonderful source of these fatty acids.

I do not like salmon.  There I said it.

I know I should.

But I don't.

Smoked salmon is a wee bit more likeable.

And then you put it on a pizza and it's downright edible.

Simple Smoked Salmon Tortilla Pizzas
Serves 4

4- 10" flour tortillas
2 Tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 oz smoked salmon, chunked
1/4 cup chopped chives
1/4 cup capers
4 oz part-skim shredded mozzarella
Dash salt and fresh ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a small skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add minced garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes, until fragrant and lightly brown.

Place tortillas onto baking sheets.  Spread garlic and olive oil evenly among flour tortillas, brushing olive oil to cover entire tortilla.  

Top each tortilla with 1 oz cheese, chunks of smoked salmon, 1 Tbsp chives, and 1 Tbsp capers.  Sprinkle each with salt and pepper.

Bake for 5 minutes, then transfer pizzas directly onto the middle rack and bake for additional 2 minutes, until tortillas are lightly browned and crisp.

Remove from oven and cool slightly before slicing into four slices.

*These are excellent cold- so make an extra for your lunch the next day!

*Also great as an appetizer!
