  • Ground Beef- ground turkey can be used instead.

The flour tortillas are baked in the oven until crispy before assembling the pizzas to ensure they stay super crispy.

Add Toppings

My favorite thing about these tortilla pizzas, besides the crispy tortillas, is all the toppings. I think that’s what I love about Mexican food so much. It’s so fun to sprinkle stuff on top.

Use whatever toppings you like: fresh chopped cilantro, diced avocado, diced tomato, salsa, chopped red onion. The more the merrier.

    Used lots more fresh veggies, onion green pepper red pepper and skipped the beans and just used taco meat with same veggies listed added. Guacamole, sour cream, salsa and pick with black beans. So good!

  2. My kids could live on bean and cheese burritos, so I need to try making these — it will change things up for them! And what kid doesn’t love pizza? These look delicious, Christin!
