Weekend Well-Being: Make Your Own Garden Tortilla Pizza

Hooray for the weekend! Not only do I love having two days off to spend with my family, but Saturdays are farmer's market days. I love strolling past all the baskets of crisp greens, brightly colored veggies, and the bunches of aromatic herbs. Our market even has fresh homemade cheeses, which of course taste so much better than what I buy at the store.

I'm always trying to figure out exciting ways to use all the yummy veggies I bring home. I can only make so many fresh salads and grilled veggies, ya know? So here's an idea - tortilla pizzas. All you need to buy are some whole wheat tortillas, and you can use them as a vehicle for all the tasty farmer's market produce.


Want to know how I make them? Then

What you'll need:

1 large whole wheat tortilla
Olive oil as needed
I large tomato, sliced
Grilled zucchini, yellow squash, broccoli, mushrooms, onions and peppers
Fresh basil
Fresh Mozzarella or goat cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste

What to do:

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Cut up all the veggies and grill them in a grill basket.
  • Brush some olive oil on the tortilla and top it any way you like with all the veggies and cheese. Add some basil leaves, sprinkle a little salt and pepper, and bake on a cookie sheet for 10 or so minutes.
  • Cut, serve, and enjoy!

Looks great! I'm such a sucker for carmelized onions, however. :(

Great idea, I'll have to try this. I never would have thought to make a tortilla into a pizza because I never thought of how to make it crispy. I'd make mine on a low-carb tortilla with goat cheese (naturally low in fat, and suprizingly good on pizza) tomatoe pase, a few olives, onions and brocolli. Or one with just veggies and pretty much all roastable veggies there are.
