This is so easy for a snack or a light lunch. Basically you’re just swapping a pizza base for a tortilla wrap. For kids if you fold them into a wedge shape they’re easy to hold and eat and that way they’re more like a calzone. Or of course you can serve flat more like a traditional pizza.
These are big favourites in our house and the kiddies like to add their own toppings. The idea came from my friend Rachel Banner who made tortilla pizzas for my boys when looking after them. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Preparation time – 5 minutes
Cooking time – 8 minutes
Serves – 4 (easily halved or doubled)
4 large tortilla
4 Tbsp Tomato Puree
150 g Cheddar Cheese
Pizza toppings (we like pepperoni, basil and jalepeno peppers or grilled chicken, piquante peppers and rocket, but you can choose whatever you fancy)
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees fan assisted (200 non fan assisted)
Place the tortillas on a baking tray. Put about a tbsp of tomato puree in the centre of each tortilla and spread out to the edges with back of a spoon.
Sprinkle the cheese evenly over each base and then top with your topping of choice. We used pepperoni, piquante peppers and fresh basil. We also did one with ham for the youngest as the pepperoni can be oily and a little messy!
Season with some freshly ground pepper.
Place in the oven for about 8 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. You want it to start crisping the outer edges of the tortilla.
When ready remove from the oven. Here you get to decide whether to serve as a pizza or a wrap.
For the wedges, fold in half and in half again. Leave to cool a little before serving as the filling will be hot for little ones. Eat from the open end so it doesn’t drip!
Remember to pin for later 🙂

What a fab idea for a quick easy and tasty lunch or dinner!
It was my friend Rachel who inspired me – hope you enjoy them 🙂
It looks delicious, I do these for the children when I don’t have time to make dough. Mine love them with pepperoni, cheese and tomato. I wonder if I can get away with adding peppers too to up their veg intake too.
You can’t beat pepperoni! You can get mild piquante peppers which they may like, normal peppers would still be pretty hard, unless you roasted them first. Ooh, that would work!
yuuum! This is like a light calzone! I love it! x
Yes, a healthier version and just as yummy ?
We make pizza like this but use red pesto for the base sauce. Love the idea of folding them.
Mmm, love red pesto, we sometimes mix some with the purée as the base. The other thing we sometimes do is mix a bit of green pesto with oil and drizzle that on top. Yum 🙂
What a great idea for a quick and easy lunch! My kids love pizza but I cant always be bothered to faff around making the dough. This is definitely something we will try!
I hope they enjoy them – let me know ??
Great idea, we have been using pitta bread as pizza bases after trying it at Matthew’s Beavers
That’s a great idea too – will have to try that!
Great idea, I would have never thought of making Pizzas on wraps!
They’re so easy to make, a good quick and easy recipe 🙂
Those look SO amazing, so tasty – my boys love making little pizzas for themselves, this would be much easier than making the dough every time!
Yes it’s a good quick one, hope they like them!
I absolutely love this idea!! Definitely making it this weekend. Thank you for sharing.
I hope you like them 🙂
You had me at Pizaa. It is our fave thing to make as a family, but never thought about using Tortilla before.
They’re really tasty, and lighter as it’s a tortilla. Give them a try 🙂
This is my kind of food. Easy to cook and something the kids will love. These will be on the meal plan this week for sure
I hope you all enjoy them 🙂
