WHOLEMEAL TORTILLA PIZZAS

For years me and my sister have made these super easy tortilla pizzas. Realising using one wrap is just too thin, we doubled them up, sticking together with a little egg wash. For the topping, we grabbed a jar of pizza/pasta sauce and smothered it over the top, finishing with tonnes of cheese and whatever else we could find in the fridge. Since then, we have grown a little older and little more “wiser”… Turning this once cheesy indulgent snack into a healthy, decent meal!

The most important thing to know about these pizzas, is that they are incredibly easy to assemble. Using the wholemeal tortilla’s also makes them a lot healthier than your average pizza base and it’s fun to choose the toppings. Plus, it’s far closer to the real thing than pitta bread pizza, I promise! What I have gone for is a meat free pizza with a mix of goats cheese and mozzarella, topped off with some asparagus, artichoke and mushroom. You can make your own pizza/pasta sauce or buy one ready made from the shop. I made my own super healthy tomato sauce which I am going to put on the blog in the near future, but for now a jar is fine!

Ingredients for 1 pizza (you can use as much or as little of each topping you want. My advice is that little of each is plenty. Do not overload!)

  • 2 wholemeal tortilla wraps
  • artichokes (roughly chopped)
  • asparagus (sliced into thin strips using a potato peeler, then soaked in equal parts of olive oil and lemon juice)
  • handful of mushrooms (sliced)
  • tomato sauce
  • goats cheese (a small wheel that you can cut into round slices)
  • mozzarella

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 6/200°C/400°F.
  2. Whisk an egg and then spread a thin layer on the first tortilla, coating the whole base. Then stick the other tortilla on top, matching them up as close as possible.
  3. Add your pizza sauce and any toppings. If you want to recreate mine then use a potato peeler to slice the asparagus into thin strips and soak in equal parts of extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice with a little salt and pepper. Chop up some artichokes with some thinly sliced mushrooms. Add 3 to 4 slices of goats cheese and tear apart some mozzarella to scatter equally.
  4. Put in the oven for around 8-10 minutes on a tray lined with grease proof paper to stop any sticking.
  5. Slice!
