How many times have you wanted pizza, only to be faced with the sad reality that meant you either
1) needed to order one
2) would have a crap ton leftover or
3) would need it delivered and what place is going to deliver you just one slice? 

If you’re a normal human being, the answer to that question is way too many times. And I have to say– this recipe came together in desperation for some ‘za. A time when a mama just wanted some pizza and the refrigerator came to the rescue with all of the ingredients I needed to have delicious pizza without the delivery.

INGREDIENTS FOR TORTILLA PIZZA

As stated, this recipe makes 2 pizzas, but it can easily be scaled down to 1 personal size pizza.

So, as the recipe states, this pizza will take you 5 minutes.

FIVE MINUTES!! That’s IT.

That’s way faster than ordering and waiting for it to be delivered, or going to the grocery store and buying a frozen one, or rolling out your own pizza dough and making one from scratch any day.

Right? Yeah. 5 minutes to ‘za. Who isn’t about that life??

HOW TO MAKE TORTILLA PIZZA

You’re going to love how simple this is. Seriously!

The best tortillas we find for these tortilla pizzas are the 8 or 10 inch “gordita style.” We’ve used burrito style, whole wheat, and corn tortillas, and these ones just work the best.

That’s not to say you can’t use whatever tortilla you have on hand or prefer. We’ve just done extensive pizza research (it’s such a hard life), and we found this style and size to be the best.

A decent sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, a hefty sprinkle of shredded mozzarella, and then… Bring on the toppings!

Now, of course, you have to remember you’re working with a tortilla. This is not the time for the most ridiculous combination of toppings you can think of.

This is the time for some pepperoni, sausage crumbles (SO GOOD), shredded broccoli, or spinach. Leave the ham and pineapple for another day.

This is light, crisp, quick, and easy pizza. Keep it simple!

A mere 5 minutes in the oven or even just in the toaster oven, and you are ready to go with your tasty ‘za before you could even finish dictating your order to the pizza delivery place.

Truly. It’s that easy.

I can’t tell you how many of these tortilla pizzas we have made over the last several years. I mean, I was basically living on them for dinner pretty much daily when Matt started teaching evening classes and our first son was going to bed around 9pm.

They’ve continued to make appearances as our first son turned into a toddler and another baby came along.

It is quick and easy and I can make it while still tending to needy kiddos.

And, you know, because one toddler never wants the same toppings as the other toddler.

But for real… This easy tortilla pizza is just perfect!

It satisfies that pizza craving without breaking the bank, diet, or schedule.

AND, it’s the only time you can say you ate a whole pizza and didn’t feel like crap afterward. Right?

Totally my kind of pizza, friends.

Psssst… This is maybe the MOST IMPORTANT THING.

TORTILLA PIZZA RECIPE FAQs

While I wouldn’t assemble my tortilla pizza ahead of time to bake later, I would assemble and freeze it. Wrap tightly and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator, then bake as directed.

While the instructions are written for the oven, you can easily make this in the toaster oven (toast for 5 minutes) or air fryer (350ºF [177ºC] for 6-8 minutes).

Ingredients

  • 2- 8" or 10" flour tortillas1,2
  • ½ cup (125g) pizza or pasta sauce divided
  • 3 Tablespoons (17g) grated Parmesan cheese divided
  • ½ cup (112g) shredded mozzarella divided
  • 20 pepperoni slices OR assorted other toppings divided

Instructions

  • Arrange one rack in the oven to the center position. Preheat the oven3 to 425ºF (218ºC). Place tortillas on a flat surface.
    2- 8" or 10" flour tortillas1,2
  • Spoon approximately ¼ cup (63g) of the sauce onto each tortilla and spread around evenly, leaving a small margin around the edges.
    ½ cup (125g) pizza or pasta sauce
  • Sprinkle approximately 1 and ½ Tablespoons (8.5g) of Parmesan cheese, followed by ¼ cup (56g) of shredded mozzarella on each pizza. Top with pepperoni and/or desired toppings.

  • Carefully place pizzas in the oven directly on the rack and bake for 5 minutes, or until desired color/crispness. You may also bake each pizza individually in a toaster oven. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes before cutting and serving.

Notes

  1. Flour tortillas: we prefer to use “gordita” style because they are thicker and hold up to toppings better.
  2. Just one tortilla: this recipe is designed for 2 people, but is easily halved for just 1. In fact, we often make it just for 1!
  3. Oven: while the instructions are written for the oven, you can easily make this in the toaster oven (toast for 5 minutes) or air fryer.

    This recipe became an instant hit for my boyfriend and I! I made a BBQ chicken and bacon pizza and it was amazing! Tortilla held up well too, given he weight of the chicken pieces.

  2. 5 stars
    These were perfect! I brushed a little oil onto one side of the tortilla, flipped them over and built the Pizza on a parchment lined pan. Baked as directed and they came out great! Nice and crispy with nice brown bottom crust. Precook the sausage, if using, and microwave the sauce to help heat it thoroughly. No need to precook spinach or pepperoni.

    My fam loved this quick recipe. It was easy to customize everything. I put the pizza under the broiler to get the cheese nice and bubbly.

  4. 5 stars
    I made two individual pizza tortillas and I also made two pizza quesadilla. Tasted awesome but to much to eat so next time I will make 1 of each and split it with my husband.

    I made this on a Mission Carb Balance flour tortilla. It was delicious& so easy. Instead of placing it directly on the oven rack, I lined a cookie sheet with foil and preheated it while I put the toppings on (sauce, pepperoni & chopped onion, parmesan & mozzarella). I will make this again. Yum!

  6. If I wanted to make this in my Air Fryer, what temp and for how long? I’m new to the air fryer recipes. Thank you in advance. Also, I’m not sure if I would know how to get back to this page so could someone please email me a response at cplohasz@comcast.net???

    1. Hey, Carrie– I don’t have an Air Fryer, so I’m not sure this is the correct answer, but from what I understand, it should be the same baking temp and time as an oven. If that’s incorrect and someone sees this, you’ll get an email if they respond 🙂

  7. I love the tip about using gordita style tortillas. These look easy and delicious and perfect for a weekend lunch or busy weeknight dinner.

  8. We do this with English muffins and French bread. Way easier than waiting for dough to rise!

  9. This sounds amazing! A quick pizza is always a hit in our home. I will check for the particular type of tortillas and try it.

  10. My neighbor moms were looking for a great afterschool snack. I think this one would fit the bill for them!

  11. We have a ton of tortillas left from my daughter’s wedding so this is perfect. Plus I never thought of this for single servings. My husband’s always wanting a full meal when I just want a salad.
