Feed Me Friday!

This is not what you think.
When I get home after a long day at work, I want something easy and quick, and something that doesn't leave a lot of dirty dishes. So I make a quick little pizza.
What makes this so quick? I don't use pizza dough. I use flour tortillas or some kind of flatbread. I know this is currently "in vogue," but I've been making pizza this way for years.

I use a small amount of pizza sauce, then cheese, then my favorite toppings. In today's pizza I have chicken sausage, red onion, broccoli, capers, mushrooms and yes, slivered almonds. I use some grated mozzarella cheese, of course, but I also add feta or goat cheese, parmesan or even Gruyere or blue cheese (but not all at the same time!)

I have a pizza stone and peel. I heat my oven to 500 F. While the oven heats, I prepare the pizza. By the time the oven is warm, the pizza is ready to bake. I bake it for 9-10 minutes, until the edges are crisp and the bottom is cooked.
I love thin crust, crispy pizza, and this "delivers."

One of these flatbreads will make a pizza for one person. When my son comes over, however, I need to make three!

I was trying to come up with something different and quick for those nights I don't want to make something gourmet (I don't seem to be able to cook any other way) and also without using white flour and you just provided the most perfect meal for me to try. Thanks! I'm going to try this some night this week.

That looks yummy! Does it really taste crusty like pizza even though it's on a tortilla.

Hmmmm. I love homemade pizza. And that looks good, as well as healthy.
