Crispy Tortilla Crust Pizza was a success!

There used to be a pizza place around here that made the most amazing crispy thin crust pizzas.

Well, since they aren’t around anymore this is my attempt at recreating it at home.

I love to cook, but not so much of a baker.

That’s why I’m going to easy route using the tortilla rather than making my own dough.

The sky is the limit for topping choices of course.

But for my first crispy crust pizza I went with the classic pizza sauce, cheese, and pepperoni.

How to make Crispy Tortilla Crust Pizza

The first step is making sure your oven is preheated to 450 degrees.

Then set a cast iron skillet over medium heat and add olive oil.

Spread the olive oil evenly and add your flour tortilla.

No need for the skillet to heat up first.

Spread the sauce evenly over the soft tortilla.

Then add the mozzarella cheese, garlic powder, and pepperoni.

I just took the mozzarella cheese all the way to the edge, no need for crust so why not take advantage of more space for cheese, right?!

Finally some Italian seasoning goes over top.

Let this hang out on the stove for about 3 to 5 minutes, just until the cheese starts melting.

Then finish it in the 450 degree oven for 4 to 5 minutes.

Ooey gooey cheesy heaven sizzling away on the crispiest, thinnest crust…YUM!
