Dee Caffari’s Tortilla Pizza (from The Boat Cookbook by Fiona Sims)
4 wholemeal flour tortillas
4 tbsp ready-made tomato sauce
topping of your choice – chopped ham, pepperoni, tuna, mushrooms, peppers
2 or 3 fistfuls of ready-grated cheese (mozzarella or Cheddar)
Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan, 180°C/gas 6. Using the tortilla wraps as a pizza base, place the first one on a baking tray. Spread with 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce. Sprinkle a little of the cheese over that and then add your topping. Finish with another sprinkling of cheese before placing in the oven. Bake for 5 minutes or until golden. Cut into quarters. Then start again for the next one.
