Need a pizza fix? In a hurry? I took a hint from the quick quiche recipe…….Grab a
couple 10 to 12 inch tortilla’s. Put one on a paper plate, sprinkle shredded
cheese, not too much…..but to taste….then add the other tortilla. There you go ,
there is the crust. If you want to harden it up a bit put it in a frying pan for a couple
minutes, at this time you decide if you want to cook it in the pan or finish it in the
microwave, convection/conventional oven, or over the campfire. Then grab your
favorite pizza fixings. I add store bought pizza sauce, 2 spoonfuls per pizza
(starting around the edge then work in……light in the middle….., cheese, meat of
choice if you want, green and/or black olives, green or regular onions, peppers,
pineapple for ham, etc …..etc….then a little more cheese and sprinkle a little
parmesean on it and away you go. I microwaved mine………about 5 minutes
each on medium high setting. They cook up just like a pizza with the moist part in
the center and then drier out towards the edge. Now, like most of my
recipes………..I rarely document them, but this one could be a life saver when
that pizza urge hits hard……….or if you are looking for a quick hunger-buster
