These tortilla pizzas are ready for you when you need fast meal that you can make in minutes with your eyes closed. They look fancy and taste delicious with just a few simple ingredients from the pantry and fridge.

Even better, everyone in the family can personalize their own, meaning they’re happy with dinner. When is the last time that happened? Never.

Let’s Talk Toppings

If you have a favorite pizza topping, go for it! You can make it vegetarian, meat lovers, or start epic social battles by covering it with pineapple. It’s YOUR PIZZA!

A few homemade suggestions: Homemade Sugar-Free Pizza Sauce, Whole30 Pesto, Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce, crumbled bacon (related: how to bake bacon in the oven), homemade sausage, or even roasted garlic and chopped basil.

When it comes to the tortillas, the large “burrito” size works great for an adult or tween/teen. If you prefer a thicker crust, use gordita-style tortillas. Or, try these Naan Pizzas from Hey Nutrition Lady.

To cut down on food waste, consider using street taco sized tortillas for kiddos or others who may prefer smaller portions. They also work great for an appetizer size.

Baking Tips

If you prefer a softer crust, use a standard baking sheet. Like it super crispy? Bake it on a preheated cast-iron skillet or cast iron pizza pan

These pizzas also cook up like a dream in an air fryer. The cook time is a little shorter, and an air fryer is more manageable for younger kids to use than the oven. I do recommend parchment made for the air fryer for this recipe as it cuts down on cleaning up melty cheese.

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • As part of your easy meal prep, make up a bunch at a time and then freeze uncooked for two hours on baking sheets lined with parchment. Transfer your frozen pizzas to freezer-safe storage for quick “heat and eat” meals. Homemade “fast food” like these pizzas are part of our freezer essentials.
  • Keep unbaked pizzas in the fridge for up to 48 hours in air-tight containers.
  • Corn tortillas can throw off the taste of this dish. If you need something gluten-free, consider looking for a gluten-free cassava flour tortillas like from Siete.

  1. We’ve done something similarI  Our difference is that we roll them up like a burrito and warm them in the microwave  
    We have a nifty “oven” that plugs into the truck’s lighter. (It looks pretty much like a lunchbox!)  We have wrapped our “pizza wraps” in foil and warmed them in that ‘oven’  when on a road trip.
    I have never thought to simply leave it in a traditional pizza form and bake it…
