Our New Favorite Lunch

We were eating out at Applebees a few weeks ago and I decided to order GG some pizza from the kid's menu. When they brought out the pizza, it was just a flour tortilla with sauce and cheese on it. I was a little disappointed in it, but she gobbled it up! I was able to cut into bite size pieces right at the table and the thin crust was easy for her to chew. I thought that this would be something really easy for me to do at home because I really hate making her those greasy frozen pizzas and I'm always looking for something new to make. We get tired of ravioli, mac and cheese and ham and cheese sandwiches!

I bought some whole wheat tortillas, a jar of sauce that I keep in the fridge and a bag of pizza cheese (that $5 bucks will make a ton of pizzas!). I also thought that to bump up the healthiness factor, you could buy those tortillas made with spinach. I think I will try that when I run out of these.

So, I preheat the oven to 400, spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, lay down the tortilla, spread on a big tablespoon of sauce and then sprinkle on some cheese. I bake it for 10 minutes and then cut it into bite size pieces. She loves it!


  1. Great idea, I will have to try that with my kids!!

    Love and blessings

  2. We used to make these all the time when my kids were younger. So easy and yummy, too!

  3. i used to make them with pita bread but my hubby being Italian makes them from scratch now... Sooooooo much better than a bought one and so much healthier! X:-)
