Vegan Tortilla Pizza [Quick&Easy]

Recipes

I would be be lying if I claimed to be the best chef in the world. I’m pretty impatient in the kitchen! The weekdays are the worst, after an hour and a half commute from my office to my home, standing over a stove for longer than 20 minutes tops is my idea of a nightmare some days.

This vegan (of course) tortilla pizza is easy to make in a rush and fills those midweek cravings with just a few ingredients! Originally I used pitta as the base but prefer the sweetness of tortilla. Precooking the vegetables reduces the risk of the tortilla burning in the oven, and don’t forgot to use a wire rack otherwise you’ll have a soggy base! Learn from my mistakes.

Vegan Tortilla Pizza [Quick&Easy]

Equipment

  • Oven preheated to 190 Celsius
  • A wire rack
  • Frying pan

Ingredients

  • Tortillas (I normally have a bag in the freezer)
  • A splash of Oil or Water
  • Pizza Sauce (Shop bought or homemade, pasta sauce works too!)
  • A clove or two of garlic, minced
  • Veggies of your choice! I use peppers, shallots, mushrooms and sweetcorn. Prepare them as you wish
  • (Optional) Vegan pesto or cheese

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 190 Celsius, it’s important!
  2. Heat a splash of oil or water in a frying pan and add all your veggies and garlic. Cook until tender over medium heat 5-10 minutes.
  3. Prepare your tortilla bases. An average size tortilla needs about 3tbsp of sauce, spoon it onto the centre of the tortilla and use the back of the spoon in a circular motion to spread it evenly.
  4. Once your veggies have cooked, spread them evenly over the tortilla. If you so desire add some dollops of vegan pesto or some vegan cheese!
  5. Bake on a wire rack for 10 minutes until the tortilla starts to slightly brown.
  6. Remove from oven and devour!

Happy eating!
