Want a quick thin-and-crispy pizza but couldn’t wait for a delivery? Didn’t want to see the ‘stain of regret’ on
the pizza? This recipe would be for you!

Ingredients

  • 1 large wholemeal tortilla wrap, as pizza base

  • 1 of the base sauces: tomato paste, BBQ sauce, Nandos marinade

  • 1 cup of any of these vegetables: rocket, spinach, mushrooms, onion, cherry tomatoes, or any others to your liking

  • 1 palm size (not counting fingers) of any of these meats: chicken breast shreds, extra lean beef mince, lean ham. Perfect way to use leftover meats!

  • ¼ cup shredded cheese

  • Herbs: oregano, basil, parsley or others

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C

  2. Bake the plain base in oven for ~ 5 minutes before adding any ingredients in to make it extra crispy – you could skip this or use this time to prepare for other ingredients

  3. Smear your base sauce of choice over the pizza base. Make sure it goes to 1.5cm from the edge. Doesn’t need to be a thick spread!

  4. Rinse and chop all ingredients into strips or small cubes. For raw meats, pre-cook them before adding to pizza. Ideal ratio for meat:veg is 1:2

  5. Place all toppings onto pizza. Make sure they’re well spread so that the sauce doesn’t dry out

  6. Place pizza in oven and bake for 10-15mins or until cheese and edges are golden brown

Variations: Roll them up to turn it to a rolled up pizza!
