Craving pizza? Instead of dialing up delivery, try this tasty—and so simple—homemade version. The thin tortilla crust crisps up perfectly, making it incredibly irresistible. And since it takes only minutes to make, you can enjoy it for a last-minute lunch or dinner with a salad, or whip it up as a scrumptious afternoon snack. Amp up the fun by making it a pizza party: Let each member of the family pick their own toppings, anything goes from veggies to pineapple to saucy barbecue chicken. It’s a real pizza heaven.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 serving

• 1 whole-grain tortilla
• 2 heaping tablespoons marinara sauce
• ¼ to ½ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
• Red pepper flakes and dried oregano (optional)
• 1 to 2 teaspoons minced fresh basil, for garnish


Set the oven to broil. Place the tortilla on a baking sheet and put it in the oven on the middle rack (it can burn too easily on the top rack). Cook for 3 to 5 minutes total, flipping after each minute. (Note: Ovens and tortilla ingredients will vary, so watch carefully so the tortilla doesn’t burn. If air pockets form and your tortilla bubbles, press down with a wide spatula to flatten or pop a small hole in the tortilla with a sharp knife to deflate)

Remove the tortilla from the oven and spread the sauce on top, covering the majority of the tortilla except for a border of about ¼ inch all the way around. Sprinkle on the mozzarella cheese, season with red pepper flakes and oregano, if desired, and place back in the oven for about 30 seconds, until the cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh basil and let it cool slightly to allow it to crunch up more. Cut into slices and enjoy.
