Tortilla Personal Pizzas



Tortilla Personal Pizzas

This is a recipe I just put together at the last minute.  Not really a recipe, though.  You can make it with whatever ingredients you like on a pizza.

  • Flour tortillas (any size)
  • Pizza sauce (I like Pastorelli)
  • Mozzarella cheese (or any kind you like) (shredded)
  • Olive oil
  • Toppings:  pepperoni, sausage, olives, etc.

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Place a piece of foil (shiny side down) on a cookie sheet.  Add a small amount of olive oil on foil or spray it with cooking spray.

Lay tortilla on foil, add pizza sauce, cheese, and then any toppings you want.

Bake in oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until it starts to bubble on top.

Take out of oven and let rest for 5.  It will be very hot, so don’t burn your mouth when you can’t wait to take a bite.

Meatball Pizza



Meatball Pizza

This is a spur of the moment meal if you keep frozen meatballs and pizza crust in your freezer.  Delicious dinner!

  • 1 prebaked 12-inch pizza crust
  • 1 (8-oz.) can pizza sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 12 frozen fully cooked Italian meatballs (1/2-oz. each), thawed and halved
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place crust on an ungreased 12-inch pizza pan or baking sheet.

Spread sauce over crust; sprinkle with garlic powder, Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.  Top with meatballs; sprinkle with remaining cheeses.  Bake 12-17 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Yield:  8 slices

Zero-Carb Pizza



Zero-Carb Pizza

This is for those dieters that are trying to eliminate carbs.  It’s pretty amazing!

  • 7 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 7 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

Mix and spread on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.  Add toppings and bake 10 minutes more.

(I personally think that after I put the pepperoni on it, it baked too long.  So use your own judgement on how long to bake it.  I also think you could use low-fat cheese so it isn’t greasy.)

Gramma Pizza



Gramma Pizza

This is a thin crust, rectangular pan pizza that is topped in reverse order.  The crust is sooo good!!  You can certainly add additional toppings if you like.  I think bacon would be good on it.


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups (8 1/4 oz.) bread flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant or rapid-rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1 (28-oz.) can diced tomatoes (or use fresh)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded (2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

1.  For the dough:  Coat rimmed baking sheet with 2 tablespoons oil.  Combine water and remaining 1 tablespoon oil in 1-cup liquid measuring cup.  Using stand mixer fitted with dough hook, mix flour, yeast, sugar, and salt on low speed until combined.  With mixer running, slowly add water mixture and mix until dough comes together, about 1 minute.  Increase speed to medium low and mix until dough is smooth and comes away from sides of bowl, about 10 minutes.

2.  Transfer dough to greased baking sheet and turn to coat.  Stretch dough to 10 by 6-inch rectangle.  Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place until doubled in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.  Stretch dough to corners of pan, cover loosely with plastic, and let rise in warm place until slightly puffed, about 45 minutes.  Meanwhile, adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 500 degrees.

3.  For the topping:  Place tomatoes in colander and drain well.  Combine drained tomatoes, oil, garlic, oregano, and salt in bowl.  Combine mozzarella and Parmesan in second bowl.  Sprinkle cheese mixture over dough, leaving 1/2-inch border around edges.  Top with tomato mixture and bake until well browned and bubbling, about 15 minutes.  Slide pizza onto wire rack, sprinkle with basil, and let cool for 5 minutes.  Serve.

Serves 4.

This recipe came from my Mom.  It was published in a church cookbook many years ago.  It is so easy to make and so easy to eat.  Yum!

  • 1 cup frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
