Pizza is actually pretty simple to make at home if you’re using store-bought dough, but we’re making the process even easier by using a special ingredient — tortillas! This recipe is perfect for a quick lunch or dinner, and it’s fun to put together since everyone can make his or her own and customize it to their heart’s desire. You can add whatever other veggies you have in the fridge, along with leftover tomato sauce, different cheeses and other meats; feel free to let you creative streak go crazy with this one! If you want a quick and tasty meal that everyone will love, these tortilla pizzas are your best bet. Impossible to mess up (just keep an eye on them while they bake), you can make them time and time again and never get tired of them!
