Can This Pizza Really Be Low Calorie?
This Mexican Pizza recipe clocks in at significantly less than 500 calories, which makes it perfect as a treat or cheat meal! It’s a homemade pizza that is packed with veggies and Mexican flavors.
If you’re hankering for takeaway, this will scratch that itch! You can dial down (or up!), the amount of cheese, and use lite tortillas if you’re feeling extra virtuous.
Can This Recipe Be Made Gluten Free?
You can easily adapt the recipe to use gluten-free cheese and tortillas. While the other ingredients are normally gluten free, check the labels to be sure they are fully gluten-free and were made in a gluten-free facility.
How Do You Get the Tortillas Crispy?
I crisped my tortillas in our Griddler…which I’m obsessed with. If you don’t have a griddle, you can make these in a frying pan with just a little bit of cooking spray.
You want them to get brown and crispy but you can keep them pretty healthy by using very little oil. Once the tortillas are nice and crispy, you make your pizzas!
An Easy Mexican Pizza Recipe
This recipe is a breeze to whip up, and most of the ingredients will likely already be in your kitchen. It only takes 20 minutes from start to finish, so it’s way quicker than ordering takeout!
Just start with one tortilla, layering on beans, chicken, and a bit of enchilada sauce. Cover with a second tortilla, top with enchilada sauce, tomatoes, and finally cheese.
Sprinkle on green onions if desired, cook for 10 minutes and you’re ready to eat!
- Go gluten-free with GF shredded cheese and tortillas.
- You can use rotisserie chicken, or pre-shredded chicken to make things even quicker.
- Adjust hot sauce to your liking.
- Mix in some taco seasoning to the cheese blend, for even more Mexican flavor.
