Can you you believe that air fryer pesto prosciutto tortilla pizzas is actually a recipe made out of leftovers?!
I made a mozzarella salad not too long ago and had some of the fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, pesto, etc. left over… and leftovers certainly do not go to waste around here.
I wanted to make some sort of a pizza or flatbread with the leftovers but all I could find were soft tortillas.
It was time to get creative and this was the delicious result!
How to make air fryer pesto prosciutto tortilla pizzas
Since it was just me having dinner on this particular evening I put one soft tortilla into the air fryer and sprayed a little nonstick spray over top.
Set the air fryer to 400 degrees for three to four minutes, depending on how crispy you want your crust.
It’s perfectly normal for the tortilla to puff up like this after the first few minutes.
You could easily wait a few minutes for the tortilla to deflate or use a spoon to press down the center.
Topping ideas for these tortilla crust pizzas are endless!
But since I already had the pesto and fresh mozzarella that’s what I went with first for these pizzas.
I also added some torn pieces of prosciutto and sliced roasted red peppers.
Next place this back into the 400 degree air fryer for an additional three to four minutes.
We just want the cheese to be nice and melty and the tortilla to be crisped how you prefer.
A little sprinkle of pine nuts completes the gorgeous air fryer pesto prosciutto pizzas!
It would be super fun to have a pizza building evening where everyone makes their own pizzas according to toppings of choice.
The tortilla creates a super thin and crispy crust which makes these quite unique and tasty!
