Tortilla Pizzas

These are a favorite of mine.  Not just because they are insanely easy but because they are delicious! They are light & crispy and they only take 10 minutes to make, which can really help on nights when you need dinner on the fly!  Serve these with a salad & voila`, dinner is served!  This combination is one of my personal favorites, but you can use any of your favorite pizza toppings.  I used olive oil for the base but for a quick pizza sauce, combine a small can (8oz) of tomato sauce with a little dried oregano and garlic powder.  (I never really measure the spices, just add some in, stir & taste.)  There is no need to cook it, just mix it together & spread on the tortilla.  It will cook with the rest of the toppings on the pizza.  As my 6 year old says, "Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy"!  Oh, and did I mention that these are low cal?  Yep, 2 of these little pizzas are about 500 calories depending on the topping that you choose.  Not bad for yummy pizza dinner, huh?!? 
Small Flour Tortilla (Soft Taco Size)
1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Minced Garlic, to taste
1/4 cup Shredded Part Skim Mozzarella
1 piece of thinly sliced deli ham
Thinly sliced Onion
(Or your toppings of choice)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Place a tortilla on a sheet pan (I lined my with tinfoil for easy clean up.).  Place a little minced garlic on the tortilla & pour a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil over the top.  Spread the olive oil & garlic evenly around the tortilla. 
Top with 1/4 cup Part- Skim Mozzarella Cheese, make sure to not add too much cheese.  It will weigh down the tortilla & it won't come out crispy.  This is actually one of the few recipes that I really do measure out the ingredients!
Then top with the ham & onions. 
 Bake for 10 minutes, at 400 degrees. 
Allow to cool slightly on the pan before slicing.
