The problem with being single and loving pizza is how to get a fresh pizza without ordering delivery, paying too much for frozen, and having to make too much at a time. Let's keep this instructable as easy as the pizza is to make!
Step 1: Collect Your Ingredients
Get out your ingredients:
FLOUR tortillas (A couple of dollars for 20 - 10 cents per)
Pizza sauce (A couple of bucks for enough for 20 - 10 cents per)
Shredded cheese (Three dollars for enough for 10 - 30 cents per)
Toppings (optional - Pepperoni is about three bucks for 20 - 30 cents per)
Seasonings (optional - but shouldn't be - a couple of cents max per)
Total cost per pizza = 10 + 10 + 30 + 30 + 2 = 82 cents per pizza
Note: I make my own Italian seasoning by mixing oregano, basil, garlic, rosemary, and thyme. You can buy a similar mix at most grocery stores.
Step 2: Turn on the Oven
Something to think about, how do you know if your oven keeps a good temperature? Buy a oven thermometer. That way when you think you're cooking at 400 you actually are.
(That was an easy step, huh?)
Step 3: Place the Tortillas on a Cookie or Pizza Sheet, Add Sauce
(Believe it or not, you can cook these on heavy paper plates in a pinch. SAFETY - Make sure the temp never reaches about 400. Paper burns at 413 degrees)
This is a great time to rinse off the spoon and put it up to dry...
Step 4: Add Cheese
Step 5: Add Seasonings
First of all, put it on before the toppings so it settles down into the cheese. Secondly, don't over do it; a small amount goes a long way. Try to sprinkle it evenly and consistently.
See the picture of how to regulate the flow of an open bottle with two fingers.
Step 6: Add Toppings
Also note that I placed my fixings all in the center of the pie. Since my pan is warped down in the center I really should (and normally do) put them somewhat to the high side so they don't slide off the tortilla as they bake. You'll see in a minute when they come out of the oven.
Step 7: Put in Oven
Step 8: Set a Timer!
Check things out at about six minutes - you'll see something like the second picture. Remember, don't open the door! It has a window for a reason.
Step 9: Remove from Oven
Set it on another hot pad to cool a bit before cutting. This usually takes about three minutes.
Notice how my pizza slid to the middle of the pan some - almost off the pizza? I could have started uphill a bit so that as it slid it would be moving to the middle of the pan. If you have a nice new pan this shouldn't matter.
Also notice how dark the cheese is. This is because of the type of cheese. If you use mozzarella it will be lighter.
Step 10: Cut into Slices
DON'T FORGET! Lazy cooks clean utensils as they use them.
Step 11: Clean Up
My brother thinks I should not use paper plates due to deforestation. I wonder which is worse, deforestation or using up clean water for washing. I'll leave that for another Instructable...
Enjoy your fresh hot pizza!
