INGREDIENTS

BASE

SAUCE

  • some tablespoons of canned crushed tomatoes
  • basil pesto
  • crushed garlic

TOPPINGS

  • zucchini (thinly sliced)
  • green bell pepper (thinly sliced)
  • fresh hot chili (thinly sliced)
  • avocado (cubed)
  • parmesan (grated)
  • cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • fresh rocket (arugula) 
  • black pepper

Strategy

Pre-heat oven to 400 F/200 C.

While oven is heating, chop all veggies.

Pre-toast tortilla in the oven so it's crispayy.

Add a couple dollops of tomato sauce, a dollop of pesto and a dollop of crushed garlic to the tortilla. Mix and spread around so it gets all the way to the edges.
Tip: You want to cover the full tortilla, but don't pile on too much sauce or it'll be soggy - yuck!

Add the cheese. (We all love cheese, but again, not too much.)

Scatter the rest of the toppings, saving the fresh rocket for after cooking.
Tip: I wouldn't add salt as the parmesan cheese is already salty.

Bake at 400 F/200 C for 8-10 min.

Cut into 6 pieces and dive in - careful though, this one packs some heat! 🔥

Note: The level of heat for this recipe really depends on how hot your chilis are.

POSSIBLE SUBSTITUTIONS

green bell pepper > any other kind of bell pepper

zucchini > any other kind of squash
