Lazy Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza

Low Carb Tortilla PizzaI have been experimenting with different types of pizza hoping I can find one that doesn’t take a whole lot of time when those pizza cravings strike. But, I also want to make sure I try to keep it low glycemic and low(ish) carb.

Thankfully, I found some low carb wheat tortillas that were also high in fiber.  I even made some breakfast with them. I had some ingredients leftover from another pizza (hello, chicken crust?) and wanted to see if I could somehow make a pizza out of the tortillas. I had seem them around the web and wondered just how well the tortilla’s held up.

I am going to go out on a limb here and say that I doubt a single layer is going to hold a whole lot of toppings. 

So I decided to make mine a quad decker. Honestly, I wished I had put some peppers and mushrooms on it, but I needed a trip to the grocery store.

I also called upon my heavy-duty cast iron skillet. I think this helped make the bottom tortilla firm up.

I put it under the broiler and it took less than 5 minutes.


Super fast lunch, snack or even dinner!

    1. I crave pizza all the time. When we order out its a treat. Usually super thin crust or I pick the toppings off. Its not worth the stomach ache.

        We’re too much in the boonies to have pizza delivered. We buy Wal-mart’s Deli ultimate meat pizza, and add mushrooms and olives. Can’t go wrong under $10 🙂

        1. We have 1 independent in town that will deliver. But I am not a fan of their pizza. The other will deliver but it takes so long since we are just on the boarder of their delivery service. I have purchased those from WalMart. I get them from other stores. Really good, fresh pizza.

    I never thought to make pizza with tortillas before. I definitely have to try this out, since pepperoni pizza is my absolute weakness.

    That’s easy enough and pepperoni is one of my favorites when it comes to pizza. Add a few black olives and I would be in heaven.

  3. We’re trying to eat healthier the next couple of weeks to kickstart our healthy habits. I’m pinning this recipe. It looks great!

    I LOVE homemade pizza! It’s so much healthier than restaurants – I really can’t handle all that grease most of the time. I like to make ours with wheat tortillas too.

    I have been looking for some low carb options for pizza. This looks simple and tasty and something that you can add whatever you like to it.

    1. It was something that bothered me as well. I tried a few different recipes and found that this one was just as good even with a few extra carbs.

  6. Wow what a delish low carb recipe. I would have never thought of stacking the tortillas or using the cast iron skillet. Thanks for the idea.

  7. This is a great idea! I have some tortilla laying around too and here i have just been putting cheese on them and dipping them in salsa!

  8. Awesome idea! Making this! Thank you for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I have pinned your post to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest board.

  9. I love pizza and would eat it more often if it was healthier for me. That crust gets you every time. This is a great idea. I wouldn’t have thought to use a tortilla for the crust. Thanks for linking up to Merry Monday Link Party.
