Hot Tips for Tortilla Pizzas

Here are some of my best tips and tricks to save a little more time and money and amp up the health benefits!

These Air-bake pans (image below) are so handy for this recipe (as well as cookies, fresh bread and so much more). They bake evenly and help avoid over-browning on the bottom. Because they are aluminum, I prefer to line them with parchment (image below).

More Hot Tips to Come…

For added nutrition and more healthy fiber, try swapping out the flour tortillas with whole-grain tortillas.

Sneak in some vitamin-rich veggies by mixing in puree cooked spinach or red peppers into the sauce to add a healthy veggie upgrade that they may never detect.

The funny thing about sneaking in vegetables…

Jessica Seinfield (yes, the comedian’s wife. See what I did there?), has a book and website dedicated to upgrading recipes with healthy level-ups, called Deceptively Delicious. Check out her book here:

More Hot Tips for Tortilla Pizzas

Instead of buying a jar of sauce just for this, try saving a little leftover pasta sauce from spaghetti night to use for this recipe. If you freeze it, it can last up to 90 days. If frozen flat in a freezer bag, it can be defrosted in cold water in one-hour if you plan ahead just a little.

Experiment with cheeses to top your pizzas. You don’t have to go out an buy mozzarella just for this every time. If you don’t have enough mozzarella, kids often enjoy cheddar on their pizza. I like to top mine with feta cheese. Give it a try and use up what you have.
