This recipe comes together in 20 minutes or less and is perfect for busy nights where you want a delicious meal in a snap. It's incredibly easy to make and full of flavor.



8 TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas

3/4 cup pizza sauce

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese

1 jar 12 ounce of roasted red peppers

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon dried parsley



Preheat oven to 425℉.  Place 2 large cookie sheets near your work station.

Heat tortillas in a pan according to the package directions. Place cooked tortillas on the cookie sheets.

In a small bowl combine the pizza sauce and sugar, stir well. Spoon over the cooked tortillas and smooth out.

Sprinkle cheese evenly over each tortilla.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in pan. Add the roasted red peppers and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the peppers just start to crisp on the edges. This takes about 3 to 5 minutes. Roughly chop them by hand or pulse very briefly in food processor into chunky pieces. Using tongs place the roasted red peppers randomly around the tops of the tortilla pizzas.

Place pizzas in the oven and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes or long enough to melt the cheese properly. Remove from oven, toss parsley over top. Serve immediately.
