Ever since I got my hands on Liz Moody’s new cookbook, Healthier Together, this pizza has been on repeat in my kitchen because it’s so dang easy! And, it uses ingredients I always have on hand – marinara, mozzarella and tortillas. It’s really quick and simple, and can be customized with any combination of pizza toppings you wish to use! And it’s also easily made gluten-free with my favorite tortillas, Siete brand. The ball is totally in your court! I like a classic tomato, mozzarella and basil, but here are some toppings Liz suggests…

Pizza Topping Variations:

CLASSIC NEW YORK – Mozzarella cheese from the milk of grass-fed cows + dried oregano, dried basil + garlic powder + salt

BETTER THAN MARGARITA – Chunks of mozzarella from the milk of grass-fed cows + fresh basil (add after cooking) + drizzle of hot honey

BRUSSELS SPROUTS & BACON-ISH – Shredded Brussels sprouts + pan-fried in avocado oil with a sprinkle of salt until just brown + cooked pasture-raised bacon or coconut bacon

BBQ CHICKEN PARTY – Cheddar cheese from the milk of grassfed cows + shredded pasture-raised rotisserie chicken + tossed in BBQ sauce + thin-sliced red onions

THE SALAD PIZZA – Thinly sliced apple, toasted, chopped walnuts, fresh arugula (add after cooking) + a drizzle of olive oil (add after cooking) + a drizzle of balsamic vinegar (add after cooking).

Her book is filled with beautiful photos and healthy recipes, perfect if you’re cooking for two! This is one of the simpler recipes from her book, next week I am sharing her Green Detox Soup. Hope you enjoy!

I'm obsessed with this Super-Quick Cast-Iron Pizza technique made with tortillas. This combined stove top and oven recipe comes out just like Domino's or any bar thin crust pizza!

Ingredients

  • Olive oil spray, for greasing the pan
  • 2 6-inch tortillas (I love Siete gluten-free grain-free cassava tortillas)
  • 4 tablespoons tomato or marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup full-fat mozzarella, she prefers cheese from the milk of grass-fed cows
  • Toppings of choice, cheese from the milk of grass-fed cows, thinly sliced vegetables, dried or fresh herbs
  • fresh basil, for topping

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Spray the oil in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet and warm over medium-high heat. When hot place one tortilla in the pan. Reduce heat to medium and let cook for 1 minute.
  • Flip the tortilla and cook for an additional minute while you add 2 tablespoons of sauce, spreading it all the way to the tortilla’s edge.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the cheese or any toppings of your choice, reserving fresh herbs to finish.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for 2 to 4 minutes, or until the edges of the tortilla are golden brown but not burned (if you’re not using cheese, check on the early side).
  • Transfer the pan back to the stove and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes over medium heat, until the bottom is browned, but not burned.
  • Transfer the pizza to a plate and let it cool slightly. Top with fresh herbs, if using.
  • Repeat with second pizza and serve.

  1. Delicious!  This is a great way to satisfy a pizza craving. 

  2. This is a FUN and delicious treat! So nice to have a pizza option that doesn’t break the calorie bank!
    I made this with left over veggies and pretty much followed the basic plan – sauce , mozzarella , oregano, a sprinkle of shredded cheese and fresh basil! I liked it SOOOOO much it is already in the lineup for lunch today, with JUST sauteed portabella’s hoping to entice my husband into a lunch time treat! REALLY REALLY GOOD!

  3. I’m hesitant to use cast iron on my glass stove top but sounds great.

  4. Hi Gina:
    I make a similar recipe, it’s called flatout protein up wrap. It comes in different flavours I use hummus. One wrap is 3pts for blue wwatchers. It is a flatbread. I use salsa as my base then with vegetables. I heat it up similar to the iron pan, then melt cheese in oven. Mmmm good.

  5. This pizza was delicious. Thanks for sharing this technique!!

  6. I’m always anxious to try a new Pizza Recipe. Any suggestions on which sauce to use? TX.

  7. This recipe has a HUGE flaw. You don’t want to eat just one pizza. Seriously. I was apprehensive, but MAN these were good. And easy. And good.

  8. Love this! It’s so easy and quick even though it involves the stove and oven. I made pepperoni for one son, Pesto for the 2nd and for myself, used low carb tortilla and topped with Paul Newman’s Mariana (the best, not sweet), fresh spinach, mushrooms, skim mozzarella cheese, a bit of parmesan, sprinkle of fresh basil and a dash of red pepper flakes. Perfecto!

  9. This has become my go-to lunch. When I come home I start the oven, take the dogs for a walk and when I get back the oven ready, and a few minutes later I have pizza. I make with just tomato and cheese or barbecue chicken pizza. Thanks for the recipe, I love it!

  10. I made this on Friday night and could not believe how easy it was. I am single, on WW and often make pizza for one with 2-ingredient dough. This was the perfect size for one. I can see that it may not be very convenient for more than 2 people. I will continue to do this, except when I want the other.

  11. This comment is not related to a particular recipe but I want to tell you how irritating it is to have to dodge the social media links – which on my Win10 desktop pc show up along the left hand border, right in the middle of the screen. They overlay the text and/or image and make your content hard to view. Any possibility you could cause them to appear on the right hand border instead?????

  12. As a cookbook fanatic, I love your suggestions and references to new books!! Thank you, I’m ordering this one right away, looks fantastic 🙂 

  13. This is NOT a damn pizza! It’s a whole nacho, FFS!
    Tortillas Entera con tomate y queso. FOH!

    • This is the funniest comment ever! My husband and I were cracking up. We read this after I had just stated I would need at least 4 of these to somewhat fill up. Ha! Thanks for making me laugh. 

      • Doesn’t seem that quick either. Stove top, oven back to stove. Then repeat process to make another one. If feeding a family forget it

    • Wow. Hungry people really ARE angry

      • Seriously! If you aren’t full, have a green salad on the side… or have two, they are low enough in pts!
        As far as the time people say that it took, This took me maybe 5 from min start to finish. About 2 min in the cast iron, 1 min to add toppings, and then I popped it into the air fryer for 2 min at 400*
        I would have used the oven, but i didn’t want to spend all that time preheating the oven. We found this to be so delicious, and a wonderful way to satisfy the pizza craving without blowing our diets.
        Some reviewers here are so grumpy! 

  14. I’ve been making these kind of pizzas with the kids for years. Problem is that 1 pizza is never enough for even a 10 year old appetite. Now that they are older teens we use the larger burrito size tortillas which are 12″ in diameter, and they will stack them to make pizza quesadillas. As an adult, one 6″ tortilla is barely a snack.

  15. I’ve been doing a similar “diet pizza” for years using Lavash bread (I get mine at Trader Joe’s). Even though I have a pizza stone and a cast iron pizza pan, I don’t even bother with them – I just slide it right onto the oven rack at 425 and bake until browned. I keep the package of Lavash frozen, and also freeze small portions of pizza sauce, so they’re always handy for a quick meal. When I want to use one, I don’t bother defrosting it – by the time I have the sauce defrosted (if I’m using frozen) and the toppings ready, the bread is mostly defrosted, but it doesn’t make much difference anyway. So easy, and my husband loves it!

  16. Do you know if those tortillas are Keto-safe?

  17. would the Ole Extreme tortillas work for this…

  18. I don’t have cast iron pans – this recipe sounds wonderful but can I make it in any akillet??

  19. Pizza or open face quesadilla? 🥙 lol 😄

  20. What Skinnytaste cookbook is it in?

  21. Would Ole Extreme Wellness work?

  22. Amazing  , just made and it’s a real treat! I made with ezequiel whole grain tortilla and it works great,

  23. Sounds great. However, I use Mission flour tortillas Smart Carb (6 g) (70 cal) each. Love my cast iron pans ❤️

  24. So it’s only 1/8 cup of mozz for one pizza? Is that right?

    Can’t wait to try this!

  25. Hi super silly question, but I went today to buy the exact siete tortillas and 2 tortillas are 24 carbs and 130 calories.which is higher than the nutrition facts on one pizza. Am I missing something? 

  26. been making this recipe for years…
    https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2014/10/extra-crispy-bar-style-tortilla-pizza-recipe.html

  27. Thanks for this! Can’t wait to try it! Gina, how does someone add your meals to WW app??? They need to add Skinnytaste to their App! I LOVE all of your recipes, but I am struggling how to add to their App to get appropriate points as you list them ;-(

    • I have relied on Gina’s recipe to help me lose 85 pounds on WW And now I’m in maintenance mode where her recipes are still indispensable! I just use the “Quick Add” feature in the app. Gina’s point calculations seem to be reliable, so no reason to do the work twice!

  28. Where can I buy those gf tortillas, please?

  29. Of not using gluten free tortillas, would you use flour or corn tortillas?
    Sounds like a fun recipe to try.

  30. Yes! I love this recipe. I have used Chinese egg roll wrappers in place of the tortilla wrap & talk about a thin & crunchy crust-you have it. You just have to watch them closely while in the skillet as they are ready in less than a minute.

  31. Flour or corn tortillas?
