Tortilla Pizza Margherita
I love the thin crust pizzas and wheat tortilla wraps made an ideal “instant” base - turning deliciously crisp in the oven. It is also ideal for smaller children who find the slimmer base easier to eat. Sometimes the air bubbles in the wrap puff up a bit as the pizza bakes – but they deflate as soon as they come out the oven, so don’t panic! You can use your favourite tomato sauce recipe or shop-bought sauce, or try my recipe for a speedy tomato sauce.
1 wheat tortilla wrap
Preheat the oven to 200c/400F/Gas 6/Fan 180.
Put the tortilla wrap on a baking sheet and spread over the tomato sauce. Sprinkle over the cheese.
You can also add any toppings that your child may like (see suggestions below).
Bake for 8-9 minutes, until the cheese has melted and the base is crisp. Cut into triangles and allow to cool slightly before serving.
To make the Tomato Sauce. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and sauté the shallot and garlic for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Add the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil, squashing the tomatoes with the back of a spoon. Boil for 15 minutes, stirring frequently until the sauce has thickened . Season to taste with salt and pepper.
