I bought some of Udi's new tortillas a while back and stuck them in the freezer to wait for just the right moment to try them. If you know me, you might know that back in my gluten-loving days, I worked for many years through high school and college (okay, and even for a while after college!) making pizzas. If you don't know me and you're reading this, you probably realize by now that pizza is one of my favorite things to experiment making. If you know my husband, you might know that it's one of the few edible things I can create- but anyhow....
So yes, I made pizza today.
I was afraid to put sauce on them and have them turn into a soggy mess, so I decided we would just dip them in sauce. Great move. The tortillas are tough enough that I think they could have held up to the challenge, but being flexible and tortilla-y, that might have been too much weight for them. For the same reason, I didn't go all crazy on toppings. I believe they could have held a little more than I put on them, but again, why not throw fun stuff in your dipping sauce?
How did I do it?
I brushed olive oil on the bottom side of the tortillas (the side with
the darker markings) and then flipped them over onto my foil-covered
baking sheet. I topped them with mozzarella cheese, green peppers,
onions, and pepperoni. I put the pepperoni on last so that maybe the
edges would get a little crispy (that won't happen if they're sitting
flat on the cheese under other toppings. I then sprinkled on the last
little bit of cheese I had in the bag along with some Parmesan cheese
and put it in the oven. I had it preheated to 400 and cooked it for
10-15 minutes until the cheese was just starting to brown.
How was it?
This just may be my new favorite pizza. They cut nicely with a pizza
cutter so I could make just the right shapes and sizes for everyone to
happily eat them. I do think they were extra fun with dipping sauce and
would be great as a meal or appetizer- I will definitely make them
exactly the same next time.
Enjoy the pictures- the food's already gone!
