1x cup Pizza Sauce – Find my authentic Italian recipe here (coming soon)
How to make them
- Toast Tortilla or Wrap – Lightly toast the Tortilla on both sides to harden them up a little. This will help them stay intact while the pizza cooks in the oven
- Apply Sauce – Drizzle sauce all over the base and using a spoon apply it evenly to the whole pizza base
- Add Cheese – Generously add the cheese to the pizza base covering the sauce
- Pepperoni Topping – I’m just using pepperoni today but you can choose whatever pizza toppings you like here
- Preheat Oven – 220c (420f) – Place pizza in a preheated oven until cheese has melted and is golden
- Cut, Fold & Eat – Cut in half with a pizza cutter and join the two sides like a sandwich and then cut into wedges. Enjoy!
