Tortilla Pepperoni Pizza
I’ve been jamming on tortilla pizza since my college days.
It’s amazing what you can do with a stack of tortillas, a jar of sauce, sliced pepperoni, and a bag of mozzarella!
As a recipe writer, I always get asked for quick dinner ideas that are family-friendly and affordable.
Tortilla pizza happens to be one of my favorite, 15-minute dinner solutions here at TKG HQ!

How to make tortilla pizza on the stove
Step 1. (optional step, but recommended) Turn oven broiler to low (I love my countertop/toaster oven for this).
Step 2. Heat a 10″ skillet on med-high on the stove and spread the oil evenly in a very thin layer on the surface.
Step 3. Place tortilla in the heated skillet and brown on one side for a few minutes.
Step 4. Flip the tortilla over and add sauce, cheese, and other toppings to the browned side.
Step 5. Place the skillet and pizza 6″ under a preheated broiler to brown (be careful to not burn).
Step 6. Carefully remove, cut into slices, and serve.
