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
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!
