Surprise!! It's a special Saturday afternoon post. I was just sitting here working on my blog and thought, why not post this simple and yet delicious little meal. Don't feel like you have to follow this recipe exactly. You can top these little tortilla pizzas with any topping of your choice. We just had some chicken and cheese so that's what was on ours. I did have a tiny bit of basil leftover so I used that on one of the pizzas. And little secret...I completely forgot to pick up tomato sauce at the store the other day, so unfortunately, I had to use marinara sauce instead of pizza sauce. It wasn't bad, it just was lacking that pizza taste. But, it's a simple idea and is easy to throw together. One of the tortillas didn't get that crispy in the center, so you may want to crank the heat up to 450 and keep on eye on it, or if you have a pizza stone, use that, by all means. Put the stone in the oven while it's preheating to make sure it gets nice and warm. Lay the tortilla on it and that will give you the crispiest tortilla possible.
Chicken Tortilla Pizzas
4 10-inch flour tortillas
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt & pepper
3/4 cup pizza sauce (store bought or, for a fantastic homemade recipe click here.)
8 oz (or more) shredded mozzarella cheese
Sprinkle each piece of chicken on both sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. In a non-stick skillet sprayed with cooking spray, cook the chicken on each side for 5-6 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Set aside to cool.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Cut or shredded the chicken once it is cooled. Brush the tortillas with olive oil on both sides and place on cookie sheets. Spread 3 Tbls of sauce on each tortilla, sprinkle with chicken, then cover with cheese. Bake for 5-8 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and tortillas start to get crispy. Allow to cool for a few minutes then enjoy!
