What is a tortizza?
The tortizza is a mix between Mexican and Italian cuisine. This is how it works: you grab a Mexican tortilla wrap (which you probably have laying around in the fridge) and use it as a pizza base. Now you choose the toppings you like. You can vary endlessly. In this article we go for some traditional and classic flavours of Italian pizzas with tomato sauce and cheese.
Because we experimented with tortizzas a lot we know exactly what you should and shouldn’t do. Off course we’re happy to share our wins and fails so you don’t have to find out for yourself.
Tip 1: Do not spread the sauce too thickly and not all the way to the edges. This way you prevent the sauce or cheese from your tortizza from melting into the oven.
Tip 2: If you use a little more sauce or cheese it’s best to use a double bottom by simply stacking two wraps on top of each other. You could use a bit of cheese to melt them together.
Tip 3: Count about 2 tortizzas per person for dinner or use a large burrito wrap.
Tip 4: You don’t have an oven? Use a normal pan and bake the wraps for a few minutes on low/medium heat. Pre-fry the vegetables.
Now you’ll always have the best tortizza’s.
