AntarcticWildlife has an easy recipe that will have you eating yummy and, most importantly, inexpensive pizza in no time. When you take your first bite of this amazing pizza, you’ll immediately know it’s well worth the minimal effort and investment.
“This recipe will make 4 pizzas.
You will need:
4 tortilla wraps
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, also finely chopped. Remember, the finer you chop garlic, the stronger the flavor will be.
2 tins of chopped tomatoes or pizza sauce if you have it. Chopped tomatoes for if you are on a budget.
A handful of grated mozzarella, slightly less if you have gorilla hands like me. If you want an actual measurement then 100g per pizza will do.
1 chicken stock cube, or a pinch of salt
Any dry toppings of your choosing.
Oh, and you need a frying pan and a saucepan too.
Lets do the sauce first.
First, put a dash of oil into the saucepan and put on a low heat until the oil runs freely. Then, put in your onions and garlic and sweat them for a minute or two to soften them up.
Put in your chopped tomatoes and mix evenly with the garlic and onions, then raise the heat slightly and simmer for around 20 minutes to reduce the sauce, stirring occasionally. This is a good time to preheat the oven to 180 Celsius which is 350 Fahrenheit or gas mark 4.
When its almost reduced enough, use a potato masher or a fork to crush any larger chunks. If you are fortunate enough to have the luxury of a hand blender then use this. Though if you can afford one of those then you probably wont be making pizzas with fucking tortillas.
Add the stock cube or salt, then mix in. Let it simmer for a few minutes more, then take off the heat and let it cool down a bit. Your sauce shouldn’t have any excess liquid, but it should still be thin enough to spread like paste. If you’ve ever eaten pizza before, then you will know what the consistency of the sauce should be like though, so just aim for that.
Next, heat the frying pan on a medium heat, put some oil onto it and take off the excess with a kitchen towel. Then, put in your tortilla and arrange your pizza in the pan.
Spread the sauce evenly across the tortilla, making sure it touches the edges to crisp them. Then add the cheese and toppings. Remember not to add too much onto the tortilla, as it’s a tortilla, so it is not as strong as a normal pizza base. For this reason, you should also try and use dry toppings as any excess liquid will make the base go soggy.
Keep on a low heat until the base of the tortilla is browning and the cheese is starting to go soft. The pizza should be able to move freely in the pan when its done.
Finally, stick the pizza in the oven until the cheese melts and turns slightly brown, then take it out and let it stand for a while, just to firm it up. Then you can cut it up and serve. These taste best if you don’t think about the fact that you just made a pizza with a tortilla wrap.”
The only thing easier than making these pizzas is eating them. And I want to eat all the pizzas right now!
