I’ve been making a version of this quick and easy tortilla pizza since my high-school days and it’s still a favorite. A lot of my go-to toppings are very unusual for pizza, but I’m sharing them for those who are interested in trying something different. Otherwise, I encourage you to use this as a general guide or idea to make your own tortilla pizza with your own favorite toppings. It’s an incredibly versatile and simple recipe. Have fun with it!

Create Your Own Pizza Night

If you’re feeding a family, you could prepare pizza toppings and have everyone create their own tortilla pizza. It’s a fun and simple way to get kids involved in the meal preparation. Simply choose your family’s favorite tortillas (or another base), vegetables, proteins and cheeses.

How to Make a Quick Tortilla Pizza

Here is a simple step-by-step guide to making your own tortilla pizza at home.

  1. Add Sauce

    Start by spreading your favorite sauce on the tortilla. I have some sauce recommendations below, but you can choose your favorite and adjust the amount to your liking.

  2. Add Vegetables and Protein

    Add your favorite vegetables and protein to add nutrients, flavor and different textures. I’m sharing some options below.

  3. Add Cheese

    Use your cheese of choice. Vegan cheese works well for a plant-based pizza.

  4. Cook

    Cook for 10 minutes at 400℉. You can then change the oven to broil for a few minutes at the end, but watch it closely to avoid burning.

Suggested Pizza Toppings:

Sauce: I usually use tomato paste instead of pizza sauce as it’s something I always have on hand. It’s better than it sounds! But pizza sauce works well too. Choose what you have on hand and adjust the amount to taste. I like to sprinkle some basil, oregano and garlic powder on top, but this won’t be as important if you use store-bought pizza sauce. Store-bought pesto is another delicious and convenient option.

Vegetables: Great options include sliced mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, caramelized onions, bell peppers and kale (I love how it gets crispy). Olives, pickled banana peppers or jalapeños are also delicious.

Protein: I like using canned black beans or lentils for a convenient plant-based protein option. I understand that this is not a usual pizza topping choice, but I’ve been doing this for years and love it. Vegan meat alternatives, such as vegan pepperoni, would work very well for those who aren’t interested in having beans on their pizza.

Cheese: I typically use vegan cheddar or mozzarella. Use your favorite cheese, vegan or not.
