California Pizza

 I'm sure this doesn't really count as pizza. Who cares! (Consider it a California thing.) It's absolutely delicious! And I do believe fairly healthy too! Don't quote me on that! And don't laugh at the crusty brown glob up in the corner. That's a hunk of burnt cheese...and it was FANTASTIC!! Burnt cheese = YUMMY!

   I love making this for lunch when I'm home by myself and craving something "foofy." That's another term for "girl food." At least that's what my husband calls it...as he's cutting himself another slice. But we won't talk about that right now. (winks)

    Top it with what ever veggies make you smile! I like thinly sliced zucchini, some red onion, and tomato. You could even toss some leftover chicken or steak on there. Or go meatless...like me!  Beautiful and delicious! Enjoy!

Ingredients Per Pizza:
2 tsp olive oil
thinly sliced red onion
thinly sliced zucchini
thinly sliced tomato
1 garlic clove pressed or minced (1 clove per pizza)
1 flour tortilla (8 to 10 inch)
dash or two of Italian seasoning
 shredded mozzarella cheese
fresh basil for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
1.) Drizzle a small amount of olive oil onto tortilla (can also use Italian dressing)
2.) Spread your pressed or minced garlic clove on top
3.) Layer with red onion and sliced zucchini
4.) Top with fresh mozzarella and a few dashes of Italian seasoning
5.) Top with sliced tomatoes and a little more cheese
6.) Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes
Garnish with fresh basil and serve while piping hot
So good!!
