How to Make Quick Simple Individual Pizzas




Here is a recipe for Quick Simple Individual Pizza.

What you will need:

1. Oven
2. Aluminum Foil
3. Spray Oil
4. Pizza Cutter


1. Flour Tortilla
2. Jar, Can or your very own home made Pizza Sauce
3. Toppings for Pizza (Your choice)
4. Spices if you just use tomato sauce like I do
5. Cheese. You can use store bought Cheese, or if you made your own Mozzarella from my recipe you can use that also. The recipe is at:

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees so it will be hot when your ready to put the Pizza in.

Step 2: Starting the Pizza

Tear off a piece of Aluminum Foil and place it on the counter Spray a little Oil on the Foil so the Pizza won't stick. Place your flour Tortilla on the Aluminum Foil.

Step 3: Adding Sauce

Spoon on whatever type of sauce you like. I use plain old Tomato Sauce and then spice it up the way I like it.

Step 4: Adding Cheese and Toppings

Add your Cheese and toppings. Whatever you decide to use, chop it up small so it gets a chance to cook. If you use meat you might want to pre cook it a little bit and drain the excess fat off. You can put the toppings either under or on top of the cheese. (Although I guess if you put them under the cheese they probably wouldn't be called toppings. What would they be called???)

Step 5: Baking Your Pizza

Place your Pizza in the Pre heated oven. You can either place the Pizza and Aluminum Foil on a rack in your oven or just put the Pizza on a Pizza Pan or Pizza Stone. I use the foil so I can just throw it out when finished. The Pizza should bake in about 10 to 15 minutes depending on how brown you like your cheese.

Step 6: Cut and Enjoy

Cut the Pizza up and put it on a plate. Enjoy!!! You can make up a bunch of these at one time and freeze them to bake later. These are also great for parties where everyone can put on their own toppings and everyone gets involved.

I hope you enjoyed this Instructable.

    Great "Ible" mikemwa ! I have made pizza like this in the past as well but I thought I would pass along one of my ideas and that is making the crust double layered and spreading a layer of cheese in between the two tortilla layers to create a stuffed crust style pizza. I have even added spices like oregano or minced garlic as well. Another variation is to use Monterey Jack cheese and taco style toppings. I guess you could call it a quesadilla crust pizza in a way. So many ideas to be explored and so many people to think them up. Bon Appetit !

    I think they'd still be toppings. I mean, they're only called that because they go on .top. of a pizza. Cheese is also a topping, even if it's not on the very top, right? Or at least it's considered a topping around here ._.

    I just discovered the ability to use tortillas for pizza on my own about 6 months ago. It is a great way to make some quick pizza. If you are on any kind of low carb diet you can make these with no sugar pizza suace and low carb tortillas. I also have found that placeing the pizza directly on the oven rack makes them turn out much better. The tortilla becomes crisp like pizza crust in about 20 minutes.

    If you used a cookie sheet or pizza pan, you would not have to throw out foil. Washing up is minimal. Great idea for a quick pizza!

    I put foil on the LOWER rack in the oven, and put the pizzas directly on the UPPER rack, with the upper placed at about the middle of the oven.  The crust gets nice and crispy on the bottom that way, and the lower foil is there just to catch any cheese drips that might escape.  I only have to change the foil every 3-4 times.  Saves on foil AND cleanup, and the pizzas are nice and crunchy.

    I have been making tortilla pizzas for years and i love them. The only thing i do different is i lightly oil the bottoms and cook them in a skillet on medium heat until the tortilla is crispy. They come out just as good as the oven IMO and they cook much faster. Nice instructable.

    Nice instructable. Thanks! I just recently discovered tortilla pizzas myself about 4 months ago. In fact, I had a couple for lunch today... Mmmm!
