Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a 10-inch non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese evenly into hot skillet; cook until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.

    Advertisement
  • Arrange tomato slices, basil leaves, and fresh mozzarella slices on the melted cheese, leaving space for a "crust" to form; cook until top is bubbling and edges are browned, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Remove skillet from heat and loosen pizza with a spatula. Gently slice pizza onto a cutting board; cool for 1 minute before slicing.

Cook's Notes:

The crust is delicate and thin, so don't overload with toppings. But do try with other toppings (pepperoni, ham, pineapple, or BBQ chicken).

We call these tortizzas and make them all the time! The key is to cook the tortilla for a bit until it starts to crisp before adding the toppings. I also finish it by placing my cast iron skillet under the broiler to brown the cheese. Delicious!!! Read More

I followed the directions and even let the cheese cook longer than suggested but at the end it looked like the cheese and toppings slid off the (nonexistent) crust. Read More

This is my new favorite recipe!!!! It was outstanding! Simple, not many ingredients and so yummy.....my kind of recipe. I did add some leftover deli Tavern Ham (shredded) for my meat loving hubby. Which, by the way, went at this very cautiously when he first put his fork into it, but once tasting it he declared he could eat the whole thing himself (hint-hint)! Thanks to 'themoodyfoodie' for submitting this easy, but fun recipe to make. Read More

Great recipe, I cook it a little longer before adding toppings and finish in the oven. One review called this a "tortizza". That is not correct. Tortiizzas use a tortilla for the crust. Read More

I topped it with sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil) and pepperoni. No additional fresh mozzarella but I can see how that would add even more oomph. From this girl who needs to be on a keto diet for health reasons THANK YOU. Read More

This recipe was perfect! Will make this again and again! Thanks for posting such a quick easy and healthy (low carb high protein gluten and grain free) recipe. Can't say enough about it! Ate it with a knife and fork as crust was delicate but isn't that how it's sometimes done in Italy? Read More
