I love pizza. I know I’ve mentioned that several times when I talk about recipes but I really do. Most of the time I make pizza at home but every once in a while, I crave Pizza Hut or my favorite local pizza place, J.J. Twigs.
I’ve been known to sit for an hour and contemplate ordering a pizza. On the one hand it is SO good but on the other hand it’s so expensive. Even though I know I’ll have leftovers, it’s just not a good use of my money considering I can take that same $25 and use it for a week of groceries (Yes my average weekly grocery bill is $20-$25).
I came up with an easy and inexpensive way to have pizza at home using regular tortillas. This was listed in my 25 Quick Meal Ideas When Your In a Hurry or Just Don’t Want to Cook and also utilizes the homemade spaghetti sauce recipe I posted a few weeks ago.
Quick & Easy Tortilla Pizzas for One
1 Tortilla Shell (your favorite kind. I use flour but you can use wheat for a healthier option)
2-3 spoonfuls of homemade spaghetti sauce (or your favorite pizza sauce)
Mozzarella cheese (as much or as little as you like on pizza)
Your favorite pizza toppings (mine include turkey pepperoni, onions & green peppers)
1 tablespoon Oregano (optional but gives the pizza great flavor!)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put the tortilla shell on your pizza stone or a cookie sheet. Spread the sauce and add your favorite toppings. Sprinkle w/ cheese and oregano. Cook at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust (tortilla shell) starts to fold up a little on the edges.
If you want to try something different, you can layer these ingredients in the tortilla and fold it up like a burrito and microwave for 30-45 seconds for a pseudo “hot pocket”!
Yummy! If you keep these ingredients on hand, this makes a quick and easy dinner on a busy night! If you are looking for more recipes, check out the SavingDinner.com Now & Later Menus or the Working Woman’s Cookbook. You might also be interested in Losing it with Leanne where she lost over 50 lbs!
