Barbecue Chicken Tortilla Pizza

Who would’ve thought — buying 12 pizza crusts for $1.50? Actually, they’re 10-inch flour tortillas which, when cooked just right, make an outstanding crispy base for pizza.

Ingredients

When it comes to pizza crust, thin is in. But if you're in a hurry, making homemade crust doesn't fit into the equation. The solution? Use flour tortillas!

Instructions

Preheat broiler to high. Coat the back of a baking sheet with nonstick spray; set aside.

Season chicken with salt and pepper on all sides. Sauté chicken in oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat until cooked through, 7–8 minutes. Add barbecue sauce, vinegar, and lime juice; stir to coat chicken pieces. Cook chicken mixture until thickened, about 2 minutes more; remove from heat.

Brown tortillas one at a time over high heat in a nonstick skillet that's been lightly coated with oil. Cook tortillas on both sides until crisp. Transfer two tortillas to the prepared baking sheet. Top each tortilla with a quarter of the mozzarella, chicken, tomatoes, onion, and jalapeño. Broil pizzas 2–3 minutes, watching closely so they don't burn. Remove baking sheet from oven and slide pizzas onto a cutting board.

Garnish each pizza with cilantro. Prepare remaining two tortillas; top and bake in the same manner. Cut pizzas into wedges and serve.

Add barbecue sauce, vinegar, and lime juice to sautéed chicken. Set chicken mixture aside until ready to assemble pizzas.

Baking pizzas on the back of a baking sheet makes it easier to remove the pizzas from the pan without bending them. Don't overload the tortillas with toppings.
