Cracker Pizza


I saw this recipe over on Tasty Kitchen and immediately added it to the weekly menu.  I found the use of tortillas as the crust interesting!  This is so simple - just top the tortillas with pizza sauce, cheese and your favorite toppings.  We used flour tortillas, but whole wheat would be good too.

The pizza bakes for about 10 minutes and then it is ready to eat.  This is a great recipe to get the kids involved in making lunch or dinner.  The pizzas are so easy to customize; everyone can add their own toppings.  We liked this as much as any other homemade pizza we have tried.  It will definitely be in the rotation.  It is my favorite kind of meal - quick and easy!






Cracker Pizza
inspired by Tasty Kitchen
(Printable Recipe)

1 Large Tortilla
3 Tbsp pizza sauce
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
toppings of your choice - pepperoni, mushrooms, sausage, peppers

Preheat your oven to 425F.  (I preheat my pizza stone in the oven.)

Spread pizza sauce on the tortilla - spread to the edge of the tortilla. Top with cheese and toppings. Place on cookie sheet or preheated pizza stone. Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Pin It!

  1. We've used them for crust before and it's so easy for me since I don't do dough.

  5. I've been making quick pizza's using tortilla's like this fro quit awhile. I try to always have the ingredients on hand. I suggest using a pizza stone. I put the tortilla on the stone for a minute or two while getting the ingredients ready, then use that side that got a little crispy to place the ingredients on....super crunchy then.I also found a great low fat/calorie tortilla that tastes wonderful...LaBanderita!! Awesome...

  6. I have used this same idea of using tortillas to make 'calzones' Stuff with your favorites, fold over and grill in a skillet just like you would a grilled cheese. Serve Pizza sauce with them on the side. So easy, so quick and so yummy~~~~

  8. WINNER!!! DINGDINGDING!!!

    This is great and easy to do on a week night. My husband and kids loved it and I liked that I didn't have to get pizza dough and try to roll it out and stuff. Plus I LOVE thin pizza and the crunch was great!
    Thanks and WAR EAGLE!

  9. this is something that my mom always made for us at the beach--and is something that is in my rotation all the time! my favorite toppings are ground beef, artichoke hearts, and pepperoni.

  11. Thank you so much! I saw this on Pinterest, and it was a real lightbulb/duh moment for me. I've made it twice now, once with traditional pizza type toppings, and once with refried beans and leftover taco meat for a "mexican style" cracker pizza. Loved both, and both will probably become staples in our dinner rotation. Quick, simple, yummy; what's not to love? Also posted about them on my blog, with a link back to here. Hope that's okay.

  12. The kids make these all the time for years. We started making them in a frying pan, crispy crust. Then the kids would make them after school in the microwave. In recent years we make them in the winter on the woodstove or when we have power outages, etc. It is a family favorite. They have been done during sleepovers by the kids too.

  13. These were delicious! A huge hit with the kids. I definitely recommend hearing the tortillas on the stone for a few minutes before making the pizzas and cooking them
