This is a recipe I’ve seen on social media a few times and decided me and my sister should try it out. I was quite skeptical that it would taste as good as ‘real’ pizza but surprisingly it did. We found it made a tasty, filling lunch and was fun to make. Since then I’ve made this recipe a couple of times and am still satisfied each time. This is a perfect meal for students (which we are) as most of the ingredients are things you might already have in your fridge/cupboard or are cheap to buy. It would also be fun for children – letting them pick their own toppings.
This is far healthier and cheaper than any Domino’s or frozen pizza, so definitely worth a try. The next time I make these pizzas I plan to recreate Domino’s Texas BBQ pizza by topping with bbq sauce rather than tomato, chicken breast pieces, bacon, red onion and green and red peppers. You can really experiment with your toppings to create a different flavour each time.
- Tortilla wraps – preferably wholemeal for a healthier version but do you boo
- Tomato puree
- Tomato ketchup
- Cheese – I used cheddar but mozzarella would be good or a mixture of cheeses for more depth of flavour
- Dried oregano
- Red Onion
Preheat the oven to gas mark 6/200°C/180°C fan.
Place the wrap on an oven tray and into the oven to crisp up slightly for about 5 minutes – I found if you skip this step the sauce can make the wrap soggy. Meanwhile prep your toppings slicing them into small pieces in order to cook quickly.
Spread the tortilla with tomato puree (and tomato ketchup if you find the puree to be too bitter/intense alone) leaving as much ‘crust’ as you wish. Sprinkle the dried oregano on the sauce and place on your choice of toppings.
Add your cheese and place in the oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the toppings are heated through.
Leave to cool slightly and cut into slices or add lettuce and fold the pizza in half to make a sort of calzone – I find this an easier way to eat it.
And finally enjoy!
I hope you try this recipe out and enjoy it as much as I do.
