As a college student, it is hard to find the time to make a dinner every night that doesn't take a ton of time. Let's be honest, a lot of us try to eat healthy and prepare our own meals but end up just going to our favorite restaurant. Pizza is a staple in the college student diet; it's easy, quick, and requires no cooking. But all the carbs that come with pizza eventually add up. Thankfully, growing up my mother taught me this simple trick to enjoy pizza in a personalized way. Tortilla crust pizzas are so simple. They take less than 5 minutes to make and you are more than likely to already have most of the ingredients in your pantry or refrigerator. This easy homemade tortilla pizza recipe is sure to save your life at least a few times!

  • Step 1

    Turn oven on to broil setting. I put mine on 525°F. Sometimes I will broil it for a couple of seconds before adding the toppings. This will make your crust more crispy, but if you don't want to just go straight to your toppings!

    Put tortilla on a flat baking sheet and add about 2 tablespoons of sauce and spread around. Leave about a half inch clean around the edges.

    Sprinkle cheese all over the pizza. Then, add on all of your toppings of choice. I like to sprinkle a little more cheese on top to seal in the toppings.

  • Step 4

    Pop pizza in the oven! Watch it carefully so I doesn't burn. I bake mine for about a minute and a half or until the tortilla looks nice and crunchy! Sometimes you will have air bubbles form. If that happens you can leave it, or take it out, let the bubble drop then put it back in.

#SpoonTip: If you are trying to be extra healthy, try a whole wheat tortilla, or pile on the veggies.
