Homemade Tortilla pizza Recipe for Kids

January 30, 2019

Homemade tortilla pizza heart shaped for Valentine's Day Nearly every Friday night our little ones request a homemade tortilla pizza dinner.  Over the years we’ve had so many different kinds of pizza from thin to deep pan, shop bought, to take away pizza and also various home-made pizzas on our table.  The best pizzas for us are quite simply these quick and delicious homemade tortilla pizzas, as they’re thin and crispy, healthier and quite honestly super tasty.

This year for Valentine’s Day the kids will get to make their own heart shaped tortilla pizza with a few heart shaped healthy extras such as heart carrots, cucumbers, strawberry and watermelon heart shapes. Then for dessert they will be sure to get some yummy treats.

We find the easiest way to make the sauce quickly is by using our smoothie maker to whizz up a healthy sauce.

This particular homemade tortilla pizza was a fun heart shape for a Valentine’s meal. Our kids nearly eat a whole one each and we find a whole one with salad plenty for our own adult appetite.

Recipe for Homemade Tortilla Pizza

Quick and Easy Tortilla Pizza

A healthy take on pizza, sing hidden vegetable pizza sauce on a thin tortilla base. Perfect for kids
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 8 mins
Total Time 18 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 4 Fresh Tomatoes
  • 1 Can of tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp crushed garlic (I use frozen diced garlic)
  • 1/4 tsp white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • salt and pepper if desired
  • Plenty of cheese - mozzarella or cheddar
  • desired toppings

Instructions
 

  • Heat oven to 180 celsius for a fan oven
    Using a food processor or a smoothie maker blitz the fresh and canned tomatoes up. Add in the red pepper and blitz. Then finally add the rest of the ingredients and blitz the lot.
    Next spoon a couple of tablespoons of pizza sauce onto your soft tortilla wrap and then top with cheese and your desired toppings (do not overload on toppings).
    Cook in a pizza tray or baking tray for around 8 mins, keep a close eye as may take a little less or a little longer!
    Any leftover sauce can be frozen for use another time on pasta or pizza or alternatively chilled for a day or two for another meal.
    We love a mix of cheddar and grated/shredded mozzarella on our pizzas.
    You can also add in a small carrot and/or a handful of spinach into the food processor as an alternative to pepper or even as an added extra with the pepper.

I hope you and your family enjoy making these pizzas as much as we do.  They are also perfect for kids to help make in the kitchen.  Do see my post for my other kids Valentine’s Day activities.
