Here’s the stuff to keep in mind while following the steps on how to make a tortilla pizza:

First, read the full recipe before you get started. Using the broiler makes it very fast, but you can easily burn the pizza if you get distracted.

Second, you’re going to want more than one. Seriously, this meal is dangerously delicious. Buy enough ingredients to make extras.

How to Make Tortilla Pizzas

Tortilla Pizza Recipe

  1. Set the oven to broil. Heat a large cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium high heat. Add the olive oil. Once the oil is shimmering, spread the oil around the skillet with a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
  2. Place the tortilla in the center of the skillet. Top the tortilla with the marinara sauce and spread the sauce to the edges of the tortilla. Sprinkle evenly with the mozzarella cheese.
  3. Cook for about 2 minutes, just until the underside of the tortilla is brown and crispy. Take care, because it can burn quickly!
  4. Place the skillet under the broiler. Cook for 60-90 seconds, just until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the tortilla starts to brown at the edges.
  5. Remove from the oven and transfer the pizza to a cutting board. Let rest for 2-3 minutes before cutting into eighths. Serve immediately.
It only takes a few minutes to make Tortilla Pizza in a cast iron skillet!
