A tortilla pizza is a fantastic and easy way to prepare a pizza with minimal effort. They make small great crunchy pizzas and work great with any combination of toppings.
The tortilla crust bakes to be deliciously crunchy and matches perfectly with almost any combination of topping. My favorite topping is a basic combination of pizza sauce, ham, tomato, and cheese.
A single pizza should be roughly enough for one or two people. If you need to feed more, then you will need to double or triple this recipe. You could also make some garlic bread to go with the pizza.

Pizza Topping Ideas
There are so many different types of pizza toppings that you can do. Most toppings will work just fine with a tortilla base. Below are a couple of ideas on what you can do.
Ham, pineapple, and cheese is a classic combination and works very nicely on a tortilla pizza. If you do not like pineapple, then simply leave it off the pizza.
You have got to try a smoked salmon pizza. Use green pesto as the sauce and top it with baby spinach, smoked salmon, red onion, brie, and capers. It is one of my favorite non-traditional toppings.
For something a little more extravagant, you can make a pulled pork pizza. Use some BBQ sauce for the base and top it with some pulled pork, red onion, and a generous amount of cheese.
You can vary the type of cheese for a unique texture and flavor. You can try different cheeses such as parmesan, brie, mozzarella, goats cheese, cheddar, and provolone.
There is one thing you will need to look out for, which is overloading the base with toppings. Too much topping will cause the tortilla crust to go soggy and can be hard to eat.

- Make sure the oven is at the required temperature before you put the pizza in; otherwise, it might not cook properly. For example, it might burn on the bottom, or come out soggy.
