A Quick and Dirty, Healthy Alternative Thin Crust Pizza

"Quick and dirty?? Sounds gross."

Well, it's not. It's f**kin' delicious.


In my first post, Pissing Off the Pizza Purists, you learned that I don't always follow the traditional style of pizza making, but I never quite told you what I sometimes do instead.

Well, if you haven't already guessed, here it is - I use a tortilla for a lot of my recipes instead of actual pizza dough.

Just to be clear, this isn't what I do all the time. Mostly just when I'm looking to get my 'za in fast when I don't have any dough readily available.

It's the perfect quick-and-dirty, healthy alternative you can whip up in no time.

But before you scoff at me and walk off for using a tortilla, let me explain why I do this and why it might actually be the best damn thin crust pizza you can easily throw together at home.

  1. It's so freakin' easy. Don't you already have tortillas laying around (maybe you call them "wraps"). Not only that, but they're all ready to roll, err...not roll? Whatever...

  2. Can anyone say crispayy? Tortillas crisp up oh-so-well. They're crispy, they're crunchy, they're - oh you get the idea.

  3. It's the thinnest of the thin crust pizza. At what point does thin become too thin? Never.

If you're not into convenient, thin crust, delicious pizza, that's cool. You may want to check out why you should make your own pizza (dough) instead.

But if this does sound like something you could be on board with then you've come to the right place. Have a browse around the blog to see some of my one-of-a-kind, tastebud-tickling tortilla pizza recipes.
