Tortilla Pizza Cups

I am game for a pizza at any hour of the day! Sounds familiar….obviously! Most of us are…I can’t imagine someone who isn’t, literally. The gooey cheese oozing with every bite is just too tempting to deny. Calories.??😱😱 Well, give it a rest…indulge your tastebuds…and they don’t matter much when pizza can fit in a cup! 😉😉Portion control!

Remember my Pizza Pinwheels…they were super hit! I mean…I have made them so often. They make for a great finger food just like the Bread Pizza I’d shared.

Coming to these Cups, well they are made using readymade Tortillas (someday, I will share how to make Tortillas at home😀) and can be put together in a jiffy. One can add veg or non-veg filling or just keep it simple with some cheese & pizza sauce (kid friendly). In fact, involve your kids…they’ll be so excited.

I will let you in on a quick tip here, these are perfect for portion control as I have said above too and if you do not have Tortillas then simply use Parathas and follow my recipe! They will taste just as good!

2 numbers tortilla sheets
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper (red, yellow & green)
1/4 cup sweet corn
1/2 cup pizza sauce (I used homemade)
to taste Salt & Pepper
Oil to grease the muffin pan

Preheat the oven @180’c. Grease the muffin pan. Set that aside
Cut circles from the tortilla sheets using a round cookie cutter or any object with a sharp edge. You will get 4 rounds from 1 sheet.
Place the cut rounds in the muffin tray and apply the pizza sauce.

Add the veggies and cheese next, season with salt & pepper.
Bake them @180’c for 7-8 mins or until the cheese melts and the tortilla cups turn a bit crisp from the edges.
Serve them hot with some ketchup.
Don’t they look so tempting!?

Bread Pizza Recipe/ Instant Pizza

Bread Pizza Recipe/ Instant Pizza is full of flavors and textures. They are loaded with veggies and gooey cheese. Little spicy, little tangy and wee bit sweet, it is definitely a party in your mouth!

Bread Pizza Recipe/ Instant Pizza

Bread Pizza Recipe/ Instant Pizza can be made with any veggies of your choice, anything that is fresh or even some leftover bits and bobs of chopped veggies work rather well. No exotic or fancy veggies needed, although if you have all of those, go right ahead and add all of them on these pizzas. Every veggie has its own texture and that is the best part about these little pizzas.

You can add sweet corn or golden corn, onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, carrots, zucchini, some tofu or cottage cheese, etc. The possibilities are endless and every veggie really tastes so good. You can add non-veg toppings too. Just improvise as you go.

Bread Pizza Recipe/ Instant Pizza does need a really nice and sturdy base, that being the bread in this case. I usually avoid using white bread as a rule but more so for these pizzas. Besides, white breads do tend to get really soggy at times with the veggies and all. Here I have used a seeded multigrain bread. You can use gluten free bread or even make these using some Dinner rolls/ Home made Laadi Pav. Also, you can to make some Pizza Rolls instead of a classic pizza.

The pizza sauce for the Bread Pizza Recipe/ Instant Pizza is crucial too as it needs to be robust and yet mildly flavored. The sauce does not need to be overly spiced or too tangy. It must be balanced with the right proportions of tangy, sweet and spiciness. You can use this recipe for Pizza sauce made at home. I really prefer the home made pizza sauce as it is less salty and certainly free from preservatives.

You can definitely bake your own Whole-wheat Pizza Base, it turns out delicious and has a great texture.

Let us make some Bread Pizza Recipe/ Instant Pizza. 

Preheat the oven @ 180’c for 10 minutes.
Chop all the veggies to used for the toppings, place them aside. Make sure they are not wet.

Place the slices of bread in the oven and toast them just for 2-3 minutes. This is done just to firm them up so that the bread doesn’t get soggy when we load them with pizza sauce and the veggies.

Once the bread slices are toasted, brush them with some oil, spread the pizza sauce on each slice.
Top each slice with shredded mozzarella cheese.

Place all the veggies of your choice over the shredded cheese.
Add olives and some jalapenos. Sprinkle some chili flakes and some pizza seasonings.
Top with some more shredded cheese.

Place the prepared bread slices on the baking tray and bake them for 10 mins @ 180’c or until the cheeses gets or bubbly and melts. Remove them from the oven and place them on the cooling rack so that the bread pizzas don’t turn soggy. Serve them piping hot.
