When the pizza cravings hit, why not make these Easy Tortilla Pizzas? Just 6 ingredients and ready in just over 10 minutes. All of your favourite pizza toppings, but using a tortilla wrap as a pizza crust. Kids will love topping their own pizzas, making it the perfect quick and easy lunch to make when everyone wants something different. All that delicious taste of pizza, but healthier and quicker.
Pizza always gets a big thumbs up in our house. Whether it's homemade, takeaway, served on toast, bagel or wrap - we love all kinds of pizza! But when you want something quick and easy or when your kids are demanding another snack, these Tortilla Pizzas hit the spot.
Quick and easy and so adaptable with your favourite pizza toppings too. Just spread your pizza sauce on a large tortilla wrap, add the toppings and cheese and then cook in the oven until golden and crispy. We like to set up a little pizza toppings bar and let everyone get involved. It's a great way to get the kids started in the kitchen.
- Tortilla wraps - We like to use a wholewheat tortilla wrap for extra fibre. You could use a white one if you prefer though. We wouldn't recommend using corn as it doesn't crisp up the same. Use a large wrap for a filling portion, but you can make mini pizzas with mini tortilla wraps that you would use for tacos. You could use our Homemade Tortilla Wraps too if you wanted to make everything from scratch.
- Passata - This is what we used as a pizza sauce, but you could use tomato puree instead. We have given some options for alternatives below too.
- Italian seasoning - If you are just using plain passata for your pizza sauce, then adding some Italian seasoning will add lots of extra flavour. You could just use some dried oregano or basil though.
- Garlic - Along with the Italian seasoning we added some garlic granules, but you could use freshly crushed garlic which would give the tortilla pizzas more of a garlic flavour.
- Cheese - We used a mature cheddar and some light mozzarella.
- Tomatoes - Add some extra freshness with some slices of cherry tomato. You could use sun-dried tomatoes instead, which would have more of an intense tomato flavour.
- Rocket (arugula) - This is an easy way to add some greens before it is served and make it look a bit fancy.
A full ingredients list with measurements is in the recipe card below.

Why should you try it?
- Quick and easy pizza - This tortilla pizza takes just a couple of minutes to prepare and all you need to do is add the pizza sauce and toppings. So easy!
- Adaptable - Everyone has their own pizza topping favourites, so feel free to add whatever you like. get everyone to make their own so everyone can have exactly the pizza they want.
- Lower in calories - Compared to takeaway pizza or even store bought this is a much lower calorie option for when those pizza cravings hit.
The great thing about these tortilla pizzas is that they are so easy to adapt. Although there are lots of different topping options, you want to make sure that you don't overload the pizzas, as it will make them very difficult to pick up and eat. Too many toppings also means that the pizza won't cook evenly and the toppings will be undercooked and the base will be burnt. So, go easy on the toppings! Here are some of our favourite variations:
Pizza sauce - We used some passata with garlic and herbs mixed into it, however if you wanted something quicker then you can just add some tomato puree. You could make our Easy Pizza Sauce if you wanted something a little more special. If you want even more flavour, then use a good quality BBQ sauce for the pizza sauce. You could even use Pesto as the base.
Meat - We kept this vegetarian, but if you wanted to add meat then there are lots of options. You could use chopped ham, leftover shredded chicken, cooked sausage, pepperoni, bacon, chorizo or prawns.
Vegetables - There are so many ways that you can give a vegetable boost to these tortilla pizzas. We added some slices of cherry tomato for colour, but you could also add sweetcorn, chopped spinach, diced mushrooms, grated courgette (zucchini), sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red pepper, olives, artichokes, or onions. You could also add pineapple, but it's not a vegetable and it also causes a lot of arguments when it comes to pizza!
Cheese - We have used a mature cheddar and mozzarella, but other cheese that works well includes Stilton, feta, Parmesan or Swiss.
If you wanted a lower calorie version of this, you could swap the large tortilla wraps for mini tortilla wraps (soft tacos).
Give these tortilla pizzas a nutrient boost by adding chopped spinach or kale.
