Gorgonzola Tortilla Pizza

Gorgonzola Tortilla Pizza

 

You already know I am a fan of tortilla pizza for several reasons:

  1. The crust is much thinner than traditional pizza, thus it has a lot less calories, fat, etc.
  2. You can really be creative with ingredients
  3. You can make several varieties quite easily, which is great when you entertain or just variety at your own table.
  4. It is just delicious

That being said, all I am doing is suggesting another ingredient to try adding: Gorgonzola cheese.

Why Gorgonzola cheese, you may ask?

I’m glad you asked!

With just a few sprinkles, you add a LOT of flavor. It also melts really well, so the flavor really spreads.

When I use Gorgonzola, I keep it simple:

  1. Wet tortilla with a spray bottle on both sides (this ensures a really crispy pizza)
  2. Add a THIN layer of Parmesan cheese (this makes the crust able to withstand heavier ingredients without getting soggy)
  3. Add fresh basil leaves
  4. Add garlic (fresh or dried) to taste (I use a LOTTTTTT)
  5. Add some thinly sliced onion to taste
  6. Add thinly sliced tomatoes to cover top (if you use dried garlic, it must be covered with tomatoes to soften)
  7. Add sprinkle of your favorite “melty” cheese (I use mozzarella)
  8. SPARCELY add Gorgonzola crumbs
  9. Season with Italian seasoning and parsley flakes or fresh parsley if you have it, salt and pepper
  10. Bake until desired color is reached (I use a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes or so)

I am not including nutritional value, because it varies by the size/brand of the tortilla and the types of cheeses you use. The math should be relatively easy, and you can use any of the tools available on-line to determine specific nutritional information.
