A really quick and easy snack, or part of a main meal when that pizza craving hits. These Mini Tortilla Pizza Cups are a simple and healthy bite-sized pizza, that the whole family will love. Easy to adapt with your favourite pizza toppings, and kids will love making their own.
You can't go wrong with pizza, right? And anything that is mini and bite sized is always better, because it means you can eat more of them. I'm pretty sure that's how it works.
These mini pizzas are made with tortilla wraps stuffed in to a muffin tin to make little cups, and then filled with vegetables, a deliciously simple tomato sauce and then topped with cheese.
What you will need
- Large tortillas - Flour or corn tortillas will work.
- Pasta sauce - Either use a shop bought one or our Easy Tomato Pasta Sauce.
- Spinach - To add a green boost to the pizzas.
- Grated cheddar cheese - Use a mature cheddar that has a stronger flavour - that way you don't have to use as much.
A full ingredients list with measurements is in the recipe card below.
Step by step
One: Press a tortilla circle down into a muffin tin. Fill with chopped spinach and a tablespoon of Easy Tomato Pasta Sauce.

What fillings to add
Basically, anything that you would put on a pizza, you can put in to these. They are exactly like a pizza, except bite sized and using tortilla circles as the base.
We kept the vegetables simple with just some spinach, however you could use onion, mushroom, courgette or chopped bell pepper. Olives or sun-dried tomatoes are a good choice too.
You could keep it vegetarian, or add some meat. Maybe a mini meat feast with some sausage and pepperoni. Or make a ham and pineapple combination. Bacon is always a good addition to a pizza.
As for the pizza sauce, you can use your favourite jar of marinara or pizza sauce, or make a batch of our Easy Tomato Pasta Sauce - you probably already have the ingredients in your cupboard to make it.
What cheese to use
When it comes to cheese, cheddar, mozzarella or Parmesan work well, or a mixture of the three if you like. You want something that melts nicely.
The key when it comes to the fillings, is don't over fill it. These are bite sized and designed to be picked up, so you don't want them to be so heavy that it all falls through the bottom.
What to serve them with
These are pretty simple to make vegan. Just make sure that the wraps you are using are vegan, stick to veggie fillings and then use a really good melty vegan cheese alternative.
These are great for snacking on, and kids love them. So, we tend to make up a big batch and then keep them in an air tight container in the fridge and they will keep there for 3 days. You can eat them cold straight from the fridge, or pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds to heat through. These are a nice after school snack to see them through to dinner time.
• When cutting out the tortilla circles, you want to make sure they are big enough to come over the top of your muffin tin holes.
• Try not to over stuff the cups with filling. You don't want them to be so heavy that everything falls out of the bottom.
• These will keep in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 3 days.
• To make them vegan, make sure your tortillas are vegan, use veggie fillings and a good, melty vegan cheese alternative.
