Date: 21 November 2015. Pizza for
pizza. What I do not care for is the size of my transom when I eat
too much pizza. There is a solution to the pizza dilemma. It is easy
and does not involve the frozen food aisle at a grocery store. And
in fifteen minutes you too can be enjoying this treat. Best of all,
it's not terrible for you!
7 days without pizza makes one weak.
years ago one of the women's magazines had the recipe. It was one of
their "Healthy Alternatives" and it tasted great. The kids and I
were quick converts. I used to keep the toppings on a plate in the
refrigerator and this became our go-to snack in the afternoons. We
made it in the toaster oven.
Must-Have toppings are simple: salsa and grated cheese.
I generally use mild salsa versus the medium on hand the
other night. The spicier was quite good. I'm not
certain which I prefer. This will take experimentation and that
sounds like fun.
is simply a flour tortilla. Any brand is fine and size is up to you.
Make sure you pick up flour tortillas versus the less costly corn
I had 8"
tortillas on the boat this time so that became the crust.
I like tortillas as an alternative to bread. They last at least a
month and do not go stale. There is no need for refrigeration. You
must reseal the bag (it's a Ziploc) or they will dry out. For a
sandwich, simply fold in half. Rolling as you would a burrito is not
Flour tortillas in the
size you prefer (I use 6" or 8")
Salsa (mild or medium
-- your preference)
Grated cheese (the
flavor you like best)
Anything you like. Meats
have to be precooked (leftover sausage or hamburger comes to
mind) along with pepperoni, onions, diced green pepper, etc.
The most important thing to remember is
you cannot add a lot to your tortilla. Salsa used for an 8"
pizza was less than one tablespoon. In the above
photo you can see how thinly it is spread. Don't worry: the
flavor will be right there. Ditto cheese. Just a bit more
than a smidgen will be fine.
Side Note: If you add
too much the crust will be soggy and it won't taste right.
Less is More for these pizzas.
Turn your oven on for
350 degrees and pop the pizza in. It is not necessary to preheat. The oven
heats fast enough that within ten minutes the pizza cheese
is golden. When the cheese bubbles up, it's done.
This time I cooked a pair
on that grated pan you see in the photo above. At the house
Son usually used the little tray that came with the toaster
oven. He piled his high and didn't like cleaning up when it
oozed all over. I put mine on the wire rack.
And when your pizza is done it tastes as good as it looks. This is
easy boat food for one. Or two.
Are you a pizza fan?
And, what are your favorite toppings?
