Pesto Tortilla Pizzas

Pesto Tortilla Pizza

This post is mostly to let you know how lazy I’ve been lately.

Pesto Tortilla Pizzas

Although I’ve somehow managed to continue making food for the blog, the same has not been true for, say, Tuesday night dinners. Too tired, too busy, too nice out, not enough food in the house – I have all the excuses. There has been a lot of pasta and salad around here.

Luckily, we like pasta and salad. But every once in a while, I need to change up my go-to lazy dinner recipe. Enter tortilla pizzas!

Pesto Tortilla Pizza

Tortilla pizzas are great because they are quick and easy, personal-sized, and totally customizable.

That means that what we have here is not really a recipe, but more of an idea for what to make next time it’s 6 pm and you’re rifling listlessly through the contents of your fridge.

My favorite homemade pizzas usually involve pesto, goat cheese, parmesan cheese, and a few more veggies. For this one, I sauteed up some sliced mushrooms and onions. BUT you could just as easily do raw veggies – I’ve also made it with thinly sliced red pepper and onion, or handfuls of torn kale on top. Empty out that crisper!

And if pesto isn’t your thing, feel free to swap it out for tomato sauce or some olive oil and garlic.

For as lazy of a meal as this is, I actually look forward to serving and eating it. It’s comfort food, but it’s just a tortilla – I think that makes it a health food. That’s the best kind of lazy meal there is!

    This looks SO awesome!!! I love using Flat Out wraps to make individual pizzas. Your topping choices are very creative and sound super tasty :).

    Love this. I was just talking in my blog about how I rarely cook during the week – pretty much I just go for whatever I can make in <30 minutes. I actually really like making pizza dough, but it is just not in the cards for weeknights. Tortilla pizza = perfect solution!

    We love tortilla pizzas! You have just reminded me of how deprived we have been. This looks amazing. BTW, I hear ya on the too lazy too cook most weeknights. The days are getting longer and nicer. It’s too darn hot to stay in the kitchen!
