Pepperoni tortilla pizza

If you're in the mood for pizza but don't have the time to make fresh pizza dough, here's another fast but delicious way to make a thin-crust pizza. I make the pepperoni tortilla pizzas on a griddle, but they can also be cooked on a pizza pan, pizza stone, or baking trays in an oven.


  • 2 (10-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 (6-ounce) package of pepperoni
  • 2 green onions, sniped with scissors into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 garlic chive, sniped with scissors into bite-sized pieces
  • About 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese, cubed or shredded
  • 1/2 cup of Velveeta cheese, shredded or sliced thinly
  • Any other add-ons that you may like

Lay two tortillas on top of a griddle. Add as much or as little pizza sauce as you'd like. I used about one tablespoon of sauce per tortilla. Using a spatula, smear the pizza sauce out to the edges until the tortillas are covered.

Now, add 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese to each tortilla. Sprinkle the cheese and the green onions and garlic chives out evenly.

Place the pepperoni on a microwave-safe plate and heat them for about 30 seconds, or until they're cooked. It doesn't take long. Blot the pepperonis with a clean paper towel to soak up any grease that's cooked out of them. Set aside.

Turn the griddle on the lowest setting so that the layer of mozzarella cheese will begin to melt while you're adding the other toppings to both tortillas.

I used Velveeta cheese for the top layer because it's a soft cheese that melts super fast on the griddle.

You can place your cheese in a microwave-safe dish to slightly melt it first. Just place the cheese in the microwave for about 10 to 20 seconds. Then use a spatula to spread the cheese over your tortilla pizzas.

To make the tortilla pizzas in the oven, place the tortillas on pizza pans, pizza stones, or a large baking tray. Then add all the toppings to the tortillas. Bake in a 350-degree oven just long enough for the cheese to melt, about 5 to 8 minutes. Watch the pizzas closely because you don't want the tortillas to get too hard.

Once the cheese is melted, slice your tortilla pizzas just as you would a regular pizza. Serve and enjoy!

A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
