Mmm...Cheesy pizza, classic comfort food at its best.

But in the spring months with bathing suit season on the horizon and So Cal turning up the temperature dial it’s nice to enjoy a pizza that’s lighter on the thick crust and heavier on the veggie toppings.

With no dough to knead and bake these individual pizzas are a snap to throw together. In just 15 minutes you can feast on a healthier Tortilla Pizzas with Sundried Tomatoes & Spinach that tastes indulgent but won’t leave you with a belly full of bread before hitting the beach.

For the lightened-up crust you’ll need two 6-inch flour tortillas. Use regular or whole grain tortillas, both taste delicious.

Like baked egg tostadas and veggie pita pizza bites the trick is to get the tortillas super crispy before topping. Just brush them with a little oil and pop in the toaster oven for 4 or 5 minutes.

If you’re using handmade tortillas that are slightly misshapen, don’t worry if they overlap a bit. The tortillas will shrink a little as they bake. After a few minutes they’ll be golden, crisped up and ready to be sauced.

For the sauce, make things easy and grab what’s in the fridge. In our house, that means marinara, pesto, and if we’ve been making veggie pizza spaghetti squash boats an open jar of pizza sauce too. You really can’t go wrong; my husband even uses tapenade!

If we’re making the pizzas with pesto, I usually reduce the mozzarella a little. That way it’s not too rich and the cheese doesn’t overpower the flavors of the other toppings.

And the toppings! Fresh baby spinach, tangy artichokes, sweet roasted red pepper and a punch of sun-dried tomatoes. Yep, these are some seriously grown-up tortilla pizzas.

But you can “clear the fridge” and add any toppings you want, I mean they’re called Personal Pizzas for a reason. Then it’s time for cheese and a quick trip back into the toaster oven to get everything warm and melty.
