Tortilla Pizza w/ Caramelized Onions

Posted by on Jul 18, 2010 | 4 comments

2 tortillas
extra virgin olive oil
pure salt
garlic powder
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
2 oz shredded cheese of choice (more or less)
tomatoes, sliced (I use about 12 cherry tomatoes & slice them into thirds)
freshly ground black pepper
fresh basil (optional)

  • Caremelize onions by sauteing over medium-low heat in olive oil for about 10 to 15 mins.
  • Preheat oven to 450.
  • Brush tortillas with oil, and sprinkle with salt & garlic powder.
  • Top with onions, shredded cheese, sliced tomatoes & cook for 5 mins.
  • Remove from oven & add pepper & basil if using.

Serves 1.



~ Adapted from the Spunky Coconut Cookbook. Extremely easy to throw together, and so tasty.

~ Can use the back of a spoon to spread oil on the tortillas if you don’t have a pastry brush.

 For those with various food restrictions, this recipe falls into the following categories:

Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free, Grain Free, Vegan, Raw

If eating dairy free, omit the cheese and use an additional vegetable of choice.  If eating gluten free, I recommend Food For Life brand brown rice tortillas for this.

    Hi Diane,

    My boyfriend is vegetarian and I make pizza’s for him using tortilla wraps all the time. This is a great way to have kids top their own pizzas with fresh veggies. I make a variety of pizza tortilla’s with all sorts of veggies that I may have available to me.

    Great recipes throughout the site. My friend told me about your blog and loved the content. I am always looking for new recipes for my boyfriend so as not to get boring with the same dishes.

    Have a great weekend.

    • Hi Lucy!

      So glad to hear you’re enjoying the site.

      You’re right, there are so many ways you can make these. We’ve also used corn tortillas & swapped out the basil for cilantro….etc. They’re easy & fun!

      Happy cooking & all my best….


  • Hi Diane sorry to respond back after months. I was pregnant during the rest of the year and just had the baby in December. We have been busy getting used to baby. My boyfriend started a new website called You don’t have to be latino to share your experience. So I am inviting you to visit the site and let us know what you think. We just started about a week ago do to the fact that we did not know how many vegetarian latinos there were. Feel free to write us if your interested.

    • Will definitely check out your website. And CONGRATULATIONS MAMA!! =)
