Easy Tortilla Pizza Recipe

This was a great test recipe. As you can hopefully see from the picture, this isn't a recipe to use mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce on a tortilla! Instead, this recipe calls for a few ingredients used in Mexican recipes, such as fresh tomatoes, lime, and shredded Mexican-style cheeses, as well as a few ingredients used in Italian recipes, such as red onion and garlic.

I typically make meals for one person, because my son is a very picky eater! This is a perfect meal for one person, and the nice thing is that you can use the tomato mixture later for salsa (just add some cilantro and jalapeno) or add it to a chicken tortilla soup.



2 vine-ripened organic tomatoes. Remove the inner flesh and seeds and liquid. Cut into large pieces.

Juice of 1/2 lime

1 clove of garlic, cut into large chunks

Approximately 1 tbsp chopped red onion

Couple dashes of sea salt

Pepper to taste

1/3-1/2 cup Mexican-style shredded cheeses

1 flour tortilla

Pat of butter or margarine


1. Combine tomato, lime juice, garlic, red onion, salt, and pepper in a mini food processor. Chop until the consistency is like salsa.

2. Melt a pat of butter over med or medium-high heat in a saute pan.

3. Add the tortilla to the pan. Once it begins to bubble, turn it over.

4. Spread a couple of tablespoons of the tomato-garlic mixture on the tortilla. Add more as desired.

5. Top the tomato-garlic mixture with shredded cheese.

6. Cover the tortilla pizza with a plate or small pan cover until the cheese is just about melted all over.

Cut into wedges and enjoy! Makes a great appetizer or meal for one person.

Optional Fun Additions and Changes

  • Add shredded fajita-seasoned chicken or beef for a more filling meal
  • Swap out red onion or green onion for a more Mexican-inspired dish
  • Add jalapeno and cilantro to the tomato mixture to create a salsa
