Thank you so much for the quick, healthy and tasty lunch! I used a whole wheat tortilla, a tomato on the vine and a basil paste (because I ran out of basil leaves - it's a pure paste). And garlic and mozzarella of course! I heated up a heavy nonstick pan (no oil!) on the stove with a lid on and put the pizza in there. It was done in about 5 minutes and crispy and delicious. I made this for 1, 2, 3 Hit Wonders. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place cast iron skillet, that has been slightly brushed with olive oil, (or other heavy metaled oven proof pan) in oven for a few minutes to heat.
  3. Meanwhile, assemble pizza using tortilla as the base, top with tomatoes, garlic, cheese, basil leaves (can leave leaves whole, or julienne). I top with basil last because I love crispy basil. If you don't like basil this way, put under the cheese.
  4. Place tortilla in hot skillet. It should sizzle. Cook until done (mine takes about 8-10 minutes).
