You can’t go wrong with pizza, can you? Obviously some pizza is better than others. But pizza is pizza. And pizza is dee.lish.us.
Pizza comes in every size, shape and flavor imaginable. That is part of what makes it so great. If you are ordering out, you can do so to satisfy whatever craving you have. If you are making your own pizza at home, you don’t have to be restricted to certain ingredients. You can use whatever you already have.
No tomato sauce? Just use olive oil. No meat? Go crazy with the veggies. No dough? Ever heard of tortillas?!?!
This pizza (or flatbread…whatever you want to call it), was better than I imagined. I have always like sausage pizza, but it never would have been my first choice. When it’s the only meat you have in the fridge and you have a boyfriend that shuns a vegetarian meal, you make do with what you have.
Thin crust is not usually my first choice either. Like I said, you make do with what you have and tortillas were what I had. It turned out perfectly crunchy, while still flexible at the same time. Flexible? That might not be the best term to describe pizza, but it’s all I can come up with. Just trust me, it’s a good thing. The thin crust allowed the flavors of all of the toppings to shine through.
The only thing that could have made this pizza better would have been a dessert pizza to follow.
Just wait ’til I show you what I have planned for that one!
Sausage and Pepper Flatbread
Makes 4 pizzas
4 8-inch tortillas
1 cup tomato sauce
2 cups shredded cheese (I used mexican blend)
4 ounces spicy sausage, crumbled and fully cooked
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup sliced peppers
1 cup sliced onions
2 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray baking sheet with non-stick spray. Meanwhile, place skillet over medium heat with a tablespoon of olive oil (for the vegetables).
2. Cook sliced peppers and onions on the skillet for about 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally to allow for even cooking.
3. Lay tortillas flat on the baking sheet. Using the back of a spoon, spread about 1/4 cup tomato sauce onto each tortilla. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup of the cheese evenly on top of the sauce, followed by the sausage, peppers and onions.
4. Cook pizzas 10-14 minutes, or until cheese begins to bubble.
5. Remove from oven and sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
