The Perfect Base

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 doing it that way. Once the tortillas are nice and crispy, you make your pizzas!

An easy Mexican pizza recipe

This is a breeze to whip up, most of the ingredients will likely reside in your kitchen already. It only takes 20 mins from start to finish, it’s way quicker than ordering take out! Just start with one tortilla, layering on beans and chicken. We added a bit of enchilada sauce to this layer as well because we like a lot. If you prefer less, skip the sauce on this step. cover with your second tortilla. Top with enchilada sauce, then tomatoes and finally cheese. sprinkle on green onions if desired, cook for 10 mins and done!

We cut them with a pizza cutter and were able to eat them without any utensils. even better! i think kids would love making these. so fun!
