Speedy Tortizzas

When you're pushed for time, it seems easier to pick up the phone & call for a takeaway.  But it's not.  You know it will take a smidge under 30 minutes to arrive and the pizza will be soggy when you lift the lid.  This recipe gives you a thin & delicious snack in 10 minutes flat. The trick is to use tortilla wraps as a base for a very thin pizza.  I invariably open a packet of 6, use 3 or 4 and the last few linger in the cupboard, or if I'm particularly organised, get put into the freezer.  This means they dry out & are utterly useless for soft sandwich wraps, but they are perfect for Tortizzas.




Speedy Tortizza

1 Soft Tortilla per person
2 tbsp Marinara Sauce
Anything else you like on top - I used mushrooms, shallots, Italian Sausage & mozzarella


Preheat your oven to 220c / Gas Mark 7


Lay the tortilla wrap on a baking tray & spread the marinara sauce on top.  Bring it right out to the edge as tortillas go very brown when baked - just leave a tiny rim where you can hold the edge.




Add the rest of your toppings & bake for 7-10 minutes until crispy.





Slice and serve!
