Quick Thin n Crispy Mexican Pizza

MOM...what is for lunch..this is what hear every day when kids are home....and being a mom I feel bad that when they are away from home..they have to make their own lunch.. so I give in and make something for them...Although once in while I wish to hear...MOM we made lunch for you today..but I know it is only a wishful thinking..

However I do have to come up with something quick and easy to fix that can keep them going for few hours at least before I hear..MOM what's for dinner.
Here is an easy quick light lunch/snack that you can prepare in 10 min.


You will need following to make this delicious pizza: here is the recipe for one and you can make as many as you like.
1 Tortilla any kind wheat,white, tomato, spinach or whatever you have in your fridge
1/4 cup Cheddar cheese shredded
2 table spoon Ortega taco sauce: mild, medium or hot..whatever your taste bud desire or rather whatever you have in your fridge
1 Chopped green onion
1 Chopped Roma tomato or any kind would do
1 Chopped small yellow onion
1/4 tablespoon of chopped cilantro (optional)
3-4 slices of pickled Jalapeno


• Place the tortilla on a on griddle/skillet on med to low flame.
• Make the tortilla slightly brown on both sides by flipping it and putting some pressure on it, I use this special tool that I have, but you can use spatula for same results.
• Make one side more done than other.
• Now flip the tortilla with more done side facing up and turn the heat to low.
• Spread taco sauce on the tortilla.
• Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on it followed by all the chopped veggies.
• Cook for about 1 min on low till it becomes crispy but does not burn.
• Now transfer the pizza to a microwave safe dish and microwave it for 30-40 sec till all the cheese is melted.
• Leave the griddle on stove on low heat.
• Take it out of microwave and place it back on hot griddle fo 30-45 sec.
• Transfer it on serving plate and make slices with pizza cutter.
• Serve immediately.

It is the thinnest and most delicious pizza with all the scrumptious topping.
You can add or delete any toppings to your own taste and can substitute cheddar cheese with shredded Mozzarella or pepper jack cheese. You will not go wrong with this quick recipe.

Enjoy :)
