Recipe by Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle
A throw together pizza while starving! :) Serve with a green salad and it is plenty for two-three people -- or serve as a quick appetizer for a few people! NOTE: To prevent a soggy crust, immediately slide baked pizza onto a wire rack and cool for several minutes before slicing/serving!

This is so yummy. I made 3 different versions to adapt our taste. For DS, I left out the onion, garlic powder and basil. For DH I left out the onion. And for me I used all the ingredients and wow it was so good. For the swiss cheese, I used slices of Jarslberg. Thanks KUW :) Made for Rookie tag game
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 flour tortilla (one 10-inch tortilla)
- 3 tablespoons neufchatel low-fat cream cheese
- 8 ounces imitation crabmeat (as chunky as you like!)
- 3 -4 tablespoons onions (chopped)
- garlic powder (just a sprinkling over the entire surface)
- salt (to taste)
- black pepper (to taste)
- cayenne pepper (to taste)
- 4 ounces swiss cheese (minced or shredded)
- 1⁄2 cup extra-sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
- 6 -8 fresh basil leaves (snipped)
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 425F for Pyrex, or 450F for a metal pizza pan.
- Spread olive oil on pizza pan (I use Pyrex!) to prevent the tortilla from sticking to the pan.
- Place flour tortilla onto pizza pan and spread on cream cheese.
- Top with imitation crab meat and onion.
- Lightly sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne.
- Top with swiss and cheddar cheeses.
- Top cheeses with the snipped basil.
- Bake at 425F (Pyrex) or at 450F (metal) for 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and immediately slide pizza onto a wire rack so the crust doesn't sweat!
- Cool for 10-15 minutes, slide the pizza back onto the pizza pan and cut into 8 pieces, with a pizza cutter.
- Three-four pieces with a green salad is plenty for two-three persons, or as an appetizer for a few folks!
- NOTE: Use whatever cheese mixture you like ~ my photo with the blue background is made with swiss and mozzarella, with the basil underneath where it can't be seen!
