Mexican Pizza with Cheese-Stuffed Double Tortilla Crust

If you like thin-crust pizza… 

This tortilla pizza is for you.

This pizza is super crispy depending a little bit on the variety and brand of tortilla you choose. Gluing two tortillas together is genius and SO delicious.

Recipe Inspiration

We are calling it “The Desert Trip.” Our annual September vacation with good friends, Steve and Joan, consisted of a visit to several state and national parks in the southwest. 

We do this every year

Traditionally, we celebrate my birthday on 9/11 at the nicest restaurant we can find wherever we are.

This year it was the Whiptail Grill at Zion National Park. We tried several entrees that were delicious. But it was their Mexican pizza, in particular, that inspired me to come home and whip up my own version.

These little pizzas are as easy to make as a quesadilla. 

No, wait. They’re even easier because you don’t have to flip them.

Substitutions

I’ve written out a recipe but honestly, the ingredients are pretty much negotiable. Just like any pizza. Use however much you want but be warned that when you pile any pizza too high with cheese and veggies, the pizza won’t cook in the middle.

If you’re not a shrimp lover, substitute cooked chicken or thinly sliced steak

    Tortilla Pizza with Shrimp

    Mexican Pizza with Cheese-Stuffed Double Tortilla Crust

    A delicious pizza on a base of two flour tortillas with cheese in between and more ingredients on top like shrimp and corn.

    Prep Time 15 minutes
    Cook Time 10 minutes
    Total Time 25 minutes

    Ingredients

    • 2 8-inch flour tortillas (See notes)
    • 3/4 cup shredded Sharp Cheddar
    • 2 tablespoons salsa
    • 1/3 cup shredded Monterrey Jack
    • 3 large shrimp, cooked
    • 1/4 cup fresh corn
    • 1 Roma tomato, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon green chilies, chopped
    • pinch fresh cilantro, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon feta cheese

    Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    2. Lay 1 cooked tortilla in iron skillet, pizza pan or cookie sheet and distribute Cheddar cheese on top. Cover with second tortilla.
    3. Spread salsa over top of tortilla stack as you would pizza sauce. Be sparing.
    4. Sprinkle most of Jack cheese over sauce and layer remaining ingredients on top in order given and amount to your taste. End with remaining shreds of Jack cheese on top.
    5. Bake in 425 degree oven until browned which is about 10 minutes but will vary depending on the amount of ingredients and how brown you like your cheese and crust.

    Notes

    My very favorite tortillas in the whole world are the uncooked flour tortillas sold in quantity at Costco. They are quick to cook in a dry skillet and make the best crust. Of course, any flour tortillas from the grocery store will work.

    Tell people to shred their own cheese, better taste and better for you. Preshredded cheese contains powdered cellulose . . wood pulp . . cuts down on the taste and not sure it's good to eat like a beaver . . it isn't digestible and we get rid of it when we go to the bathroom . . no health benefits from eating it . . except to regulate bowl movements and no calories . . can't say what it does to the body.
