Who doesn’t love Pizza? Actually I do know a few people who prefer not to eat this popular dish, but to each his own. For those of you who do however, here’s a very quick and easy way to get your pizza fix! There was one week where Hy-Vee had tortilla shells on sale 10 packages for $10, and I wanted to take advantage of the deal but I didn’t know how we were going to go through that many tortilla shells. And then we came up with the idea to make them into pizza!
First we threw the tortilla shells in the oven for a few minutes to brown up just a tiny bit, ( I think the oven cooks somewhere around 400 degrees) after they had started to lightly brown we took them out, and smoothed out any bubbles that had expanded during cooking. We don’t usually use “Pizza” Sauce for these, normally we just pop open a can of pasta sauce. (I don’t think there’s really a difference, they just sell them with different names to try and get unsuspecting customers to purchase both) Normally one can of pasta sauce can last for 3-4 times of making these pizzas, or 12-16 pizzas. Sprinkle with your favorite cheese and pop back in the oven for a few more minutes until the cheese is bubbly to your liking. We normally make 4 total because each of us can easily eat two. Either way it’s much cheaper than buying frozen pizza! Although this is not a recipe from Pinterest, I still thought I should share it because it is one of our favorite dishes for nights we are craving pizza.
You can also add whatever toppings you prefer! We have added mushrooms before, but I’m sure that any topping would do!
As a note: if you are trying to make these gluten free, one time we tried to make these with corn tortilla shells and it didn’t turn out so well for us. The corn shells got very hard and gritty after being baked. So if you are looking for a gluten free option, I would recommend trying a different type of tortilla shell.
