Personal Tortilla Pizzas...

Here's a QUICK fix for dinner, kid friendly, and great when there's not a lot left in the fridge. Super perfect for lunches, it makes a great personal pizza, and its fabulous if you have a leftover chicken breast from the day before... here we go!

** There are no measurements because it is a matter of personal preference (as to how "loaded" you like your pizzas--- as well as how many you are making!***
Brown Rice Tortillas (I get mine at Trader Joe's)
BBQ sauce
grated cheese
cilantro, chopped
red pepper, chopped
red onion, chopped
cooked chicken, chopped

Warm up your oven to about 400. Lay your tortillas on a cookie sheet, spread some BBQ sauce on top. Then add your toppings, I used red onion, red pepper, some cilantro, a left over chicken breast, and topped it off with some cheese I had on hand- Monterey Jack, but you could also use Mozerella or your favorite. Then cook them for about 10-12 minutes until the edges of your tortilla are crispy and the tops of your pizzas are golden brown. If you have two cookie sheets in the oven at the same time, switch their placement half way through the cooking time. Cool them for a minute, cut, and serve! I made these for dinner one night and the adults ate between 1 to 1 and a half tortilla pizzas per person- just to give you an idea! You could really get creative with your toppings, I think I am going to try a mushroom, zucchini, chicken pizza next! Stay tuned!

Gluten Free: These pizzas are gluten free because of the tortilla choice, the brown rice tortillas crisp up really well and are sturdy enough to hold the toppings. I haven't tried these with any other kind of tortilla, but if YOU do, let us know how they turn out! Thanks!!
