Yes, we do eat things that have nothing to do with pizza around here. It's just that pizza is such a kid-friendly, good-tasting comfort food, and GF people often have to pass it up or pay more for it. Not this time! These handy dandy little pizzas are just what the mama ordered. Kid-friendly, good-tasting, comfort-giving, gluten-free aaand cheap and easy little pizzas. With not even a bite of crust left over.
I asked some of my favorite taste-testers how they liked them, and 4 out of 4 kids surveyed gave them a thumbs up. Note the mouths in various stages of chewing. :)
Cute little kids
And a late-comer to the lunch table, focused only on eating:
Cute older kid
Also, this is a money-saver. Two small gluten-free frozen pizzas at the grocery store cost $15 (+ tax.) I checked. For about $20 (+ tax), I bought a 1 1/2 lb. bag of pepperoni, 1 lb. of mozarella, 2 cans of pizza sauce, and a package of 80 tortillas. That makes a lot of kid-sized pizzas!!
This is pretty much our favorite lunch now. I almost always keep pizza ingredients on hand. Don't you think that should win me mother-of-the-year? :)) So, I thought it might come in handy for those of you who have your kids home for lunch now that it's summer vacation, or maybe you're like me, and you always have your kids home for lunch. And I wouldn't have it any other way. usually ;)
So here's how we do it. And I won't bother you with a-single-nother pizza post ever. I promise. I think.
You will need: corn tortillas
shredded mozzarella cheese
Spread a small amount of olive oil on a cookie sheet. (I just smeared some on with my fingers.)
Place corn tortillas on cookie sheet. (Mine fits 6 small corn tortillas without overlapping.)
Spoon some sauce onto each tortilla.
Put a handful of shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the sauce.
Place pepperoni on the cheese.
Sprinkle with parmesan.
Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. Look for edges of tortilla to begin to crisp and turn golden.
Remove each pizza from cookie sheet with large spatula and place on plate.
*Let cool slightly.
(If you only need to cook one or two, use the toaster oven, and adjust time/temp as needed.)
Have a little pizza party and do your own survey.
Can't wait to hear your results.
