Mini Tortilla Pizzas

I am always on a mission to find good new lunch box items.  I am also always on a mission to use up leftovers.  So with this recipe I double scored!  I had leftover tortillas after making chicken caesar wraps for dinner and needed something to do with them.  I stumbled across this recipe and thought I would give it a try.

Well, they were a huge success, in fact I had to make more than I originally planned because they kept getting eaten right off the plate as fast as I could take them out of the oven.  They are perfect as appetizers, for a pot luck, and in lunch boxes.  You can use whatever toppings you want to, I made some pepperoni and cheese, and some just cheese for my little picky pants.

Ingredients

tortillas

pizza sauce

grated cheese

pepperoni (I chopped mine up instead of slices)

other optional toppings.

 

You want to start by preheating your oven to 450*

While the oven is preheating dump your sauce in to another container and wash and dry your can.  You are going to use the top of it to cut your tortillas in to circles.  You will end up with this (and a little bit of waste which you can bake and dip in hummus).

Press your tortilla rounds in to a muffin tin and bake for 4 minutes, or until slightly browned.  This will give them a nice little bit of crunch.

Once they come out of the oven, add your sauce, toppings and cheese.  Return to the oven and bake for another 4 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve and enjoy!
