Most of us love pizza but don’t want the hassle of making it from scratch. Most grocery stores now sell the pizza bases already prepared and all you have to do is add your sauce and favorite toppings and bake it for 15 minutes in the oven. Another approach, if you don’t have any store-bought pizza bases on hand, is using tortillas, instead.

This recipe is super easy to make. You could have it for your lunch, or you could serve it for dinner with a side of potato wedges or salad. This is also a great way to use any leftover produce you have in your fridge or any vegetables that are close to their use-by date.

You can alter the ingredients that are mentioned and choose different toppings or switch out one topping for another. There is no limit to what type of toppings you can add or the number that you can add.

This is a recipe that anyone can make and does not take very long to make, so that's why it would be a good choice for dinner. Once you have everything chopped up, all you need to do is start assembling all your favourite toppings onto your pizza and it's ready in 15 minutes.

I used mini tortillas for this recipe but you can use the larger size tortillas instead. This recipe would be enough for two large-size tortillas.

I used grated white cheddar cheese, but if you prefer using red cheddar or mozzarella that is absolutely fine. It won't lose any of its flavour and it will still taste delicious.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 medium white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped into cubes
  • 4 slices ham, roughly chopped
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 8 tablespoons grated white cheddar cheese
  • 8 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 4 mini tortillas (or 2 large tortillas)

For the sauce:

  • 8 tablespoons tomato relish, tomato puree, or pasta sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic puree (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius (392 Fahrenheit).
  2. Lay your mini tortillas which will be the pizza base on a large flat cooking tray.
  3. Chop up your white onion really finely and place it in a dish. Next chop up your red pepper into cubes. Roughly chop up your slices of ham and place this into a bowl. Slice your cherry tomatoes and set them aside in a bowl to use later. (If you don't want ham you can use chicken instead.)
  4. On each tortilla, spread about 2 tablespoons of the tomato relish (or the tomato puree). Spread the sauce out to the ends of each of tortilla.
  5. Spread the ham, onion and red pepper toppings over each tortilla. After that pour over 1 to 2 tablespoons of chili sauce over the toppings on each tortilla.
  6. Bake the tortillas in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese has melted.

Secret Ingredient

I sometimes like to mix things up and instead of using tomato puree as the sauce for the base; I will instead use tomato relish or pepper relish. Both of these sauces are packed full of flavor.

However if you don’t have tomato relish on hand, you can still make this recipe with pasta sauce or tomato puree. I would mix in 1 teaspoon of garlic puree to either of these sauces and spread this on to the tortilla. It won’t overpower the sauce unless you add more than one teaspoon of garlic puree to the sauce.

Chef's Tip

If you don’t like the smell of garlic left on your hand after preparing it for a dish, then you can use garlic puree.

Garlic puree is usually in the same aisle as the pasta and curry sauces. It comes in a tube and it taste just as good as real garlic. You store it in the fridge. It saves you having to peel and chop a clove of garlic.

Other Topping Ideas

If you don't like the toppings mentioned here, there are other toppings you can use.

  • Meat and vegetable: Olives, red onion, pineapple, mushrooms, pepperoni, and shredded chicken.
  • Vegetarian: Olives, red onion, pineapple, spinach, red and yellow pepper and sweetcorn.
  • Meat and cheese: Ham, chicken, bacon and cheddar cheese.
