The best part about tortilla pizzas is how easy they are to customize. Whether you’re a meat lover, a veggie enthusiast, or just looking for something different, you can easily swap out toppings and use your favorite pizza toppings to create your perfect homemade pizza.
Plus, because you’re using a tortilla instead of traditional pizza dough, you can even get gluten-free tortillas and actually make these pizzas gluten-free.
It’s an easy-to-follow recipe and you can add your favorite toppings for a personalized meal. It’s perfect for busy nights.
Now let’s talk about some of the ingredients in these homemade tortilla pizzas. (The printable list of all ingredients are in the recipe card below.)
Flour tortillas: The base of this pizza is easy because you’ll just need a flour tortilla. It actually does crisp up and hold its shape much better than you’d think.
Olive oil and garlic: Brushing olive oil onto the tortilla really helps it crisp up and gives it great flavor along with the garlic.
Pizza sauce: You’ll want to add pizza sauce to your pizza. I used red pizza sauce, but you can use any type you like. I bet the alfredo sauce would taste good.
Pizza toppings: This part is totally customizable, so feel free to add whatever type of cheese and toppings you like on your pizza.

How to make this pizza:
Let’s talk about how to make pizza using a tortilla. (The printable instructions are in the recipe card below.)
First, make sure to preheat the oven to 425 degrees F, then cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
Set two tortillas onto the prepared baking sheet and brush them with olive oil, then sprinkle with the garlic powder.
Next, place the baking sheet into the oven, on the middle rack, and bake for 3-6 minutes only. The tortillas will bubble up and the edges will start to crisp up.
Now, pull the pan out of the oven and add the pizza sauce onto the two tortillas. Use as much or as little as you like.
Add about half the cheese onto the tortillas, then add the toppings of your choice. Finally, add the rest of the cheese and bake for another 3-6 minutes until the cheese is melted. Ovens vary so watch closely.
Remove from the oven and cool for about 5 minutes, then cut into wedges and serve.

Tips & FAQs:
Flour tortillas work the best for this recipe.
Corn tortillas will probably not crisp up the same as flour tortillas, so you probably won’t get the same result.
Most likely. I haven’t tried using the gluten-free or low-carb tortillas, so I can’t say if they will crisp up as well, but it’s definitely worth trying.
Probably, because you can control the types of toppings you put on it in addition to the fact that the tortilla is probably less cards than a regular slice of pizza. Although make sure to do comparisons for yourself.
I used pizza sauce from a can, but use any sauce you’d like. You could go with a red sauce, white sauce, BBQ sauce, or refried beans for Mexican pizza.
Some popular pizza topping are: pepperoni, sausage, ground beef, Canadian bacon, chicken, onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, olives, pineapple, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, etc.
Of course. Feel free to skip any meat and add dairy-free cheese if desired. Check that the tortillas you’re using are vegan.
Tortilla pizzas are best eaten once they come out of the oven. You can make them ahead of time and store them in freezer bags, then reheat them, however they won’t be as crispy.
It’s possible although I have not tried it. Make sure to follow your air fryer’s manufactures instructions for heating specific items.
It’s possible although I have not tried it. Make sure to watch it closely as the timing may be different than heating in an oven.
