Need a new idea for those tortillas you have in your fridge? Make yourself and your children happy with personalized pizzas!
Tortillas are so versatile! There are so many ways you can use them. The possibilities are unlimited, which is why we use them in our school lunch ideas.
They are also great for dinner, but somehow, many of us forget that they are there by the end of the week and, well, you know how the story ends.
I’ve always said how much my family loves pizza, and I’ll say it again: We love pizza. However, even if you love a specific food, it’s nice to change it up sometimes for variety!
For those nights when you need something super quick, these tortilla pizzas will work perfectly. Not to mention that your picky eater can help assemble his or her own pizza with their choice of toppings!
These Easy Tortilla Pizzas are exactly what we call them: easy. With just a tortilla, tomato sauce or pizza sauce, the desired amount of shredded cheese and preferred toppings, you quickly get individualized pizzas that are ready within 10 minutes!
This works perfectly, especially if everyone likes different toppings. I love Hawaiian pizzas with ham and pineapple. My daughter loves cheese, pepperoni, and sausage only. My husband loves it all! He usually prefers a mix, but he also loves olives, which my daughter and I don’t like.
With three different taste buds, these tortilla pizzas make it easy to customize our own pizzas quickly. This also would be perfect if there were food allergies in the house. By using your own ingredients at home, you can ensure that you and your family are eating safely. Swap the flour tortillas for gluten-free ones, or swap the cheese for a dairy-free option.
These are also easy to pack for lunch, so if you need more ideas, make sure you are subscribed to our free newsletter. But remember to let your pizza cool completely before packing inside a lunch box.
