Tortilla Pizza

I remember seeing Elin using tortilla to make pizza here and i like it. I'm now stealing her idea and make my own pizza, as much i would like to put in additional veggies for my pizza, i try to stick to 4 ingredients to fit in the theme. It's thin, slightly crispy, quite like a thin crust of pizza. It's good and as i'm typing this now, i'm still munching on one! I used pesto sauce as a base, spread it on the tortilla, add in the tomatoes and load them over with mozarella cheese. I've made 2 pieces here.. one with cherry tomatoes and one with sun dried tomatoes. Bake them till cheese is bubbly and the tortilla is slightly crispy. You may need to bake them till slightly crispy otherwise your tortilla wont hold up, takes around 6-8 minutes. You can check after 5 minutes in the oven to check that the crisp is just nice and not easily broken.

with sun dried tomatoes

with cherry tomatoes

pesto sauce
sun dried tomatoes or any other filling
shredded mozarella cheese

Spread the sauce over tortilla, sprinkle some cheese over, add in the fillings and sprinkle another layer of cheese again. Bake in a preheated oven at 200C till cheese has melted and tortilla is slightly crispy, around 6-8 minutes.

note: as the pesto sauce and sun dried tomatoes are packed with oil, i tried not to put too much and also i dabbed the oil off the sundried tomatoes before putting them in.
