One of my favorite quick-meals to make is pizza with a big 13" tortilla instead of dough. It's like having a pre-made pizza crust around all the time! I like to buy the different flavors that they sell at the Farmer's market, but any kind will do. I can eat a whole one by myself, but if you're watching portions, you could easily split this with someone!
Tomato, Asparagus & Mushroom Pizza (personal-size)
- 1 13" tortilla
- 1/2 a heirloom tomato (sliced)
- 4-5 mushrooms (sliced)
- 4-5 stalks of asparagus (cut length-wise in half)
- tomato sauce (about 1/3 a cup)
- your choice of cheese (I used a mozzarella / provolone blend, with a little bit of asiago)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Meanwhile, assemble your pizza! I use a spoon to spread out the sauce, then I do the cheese next, and the vegetable toppings last. Like so:
I like to arrange everything so it's pretty-like!
Next, season everything with a little bit of salt & pepper, and garlic salt if desired. I like to spray the top with oil as well.
Pop it in the oven and cook for about 5-10 minutes! When the edges start getting crispy, it's ready to go. Let it cool for a minute before cutting too - it makes it a little easier since the tortilla makes for a flimsy crust. Using a large spatula, carefully lift each piece and transfer to a plate. Enjoy!
Yep, I may have to have this again for dinner tonight! YUM!
On another non-food related note - Fall is definitely here! I loved the wind rustling through the leaves outside my work the other day that I took a pic while relaxing on my break...
More lovely fall pictures to come soon!
OH, and did I mention that Stacey & I finished our 5k last weekend??? Well we did!! It was for the Das Hustlehoff 5k in downtown Denver - for Oktoberfest. They encouraged people to come "in costume" so naturally, I did! What's funny is that I already owned that costume - I've had it under my bed for ages just in case I needed it. It came in handy after all!
I love these shots of us crossing the finish line together. We're so damn happy! We finished in 33 minutes 38 seconds - no walking. I was elated, and we already signed up for our next race! WE ROCK!! :)
