Here's another way to use tortillas. The topping possibilities are endless — just keep the quantities light so the tortillas get nice and crispy.


cooked chicken sausage(s)

6 oz, about 2 links, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced

uncooked red onion(s)

1 small, cut into thin slivers

yellow pepper(s)

1 small, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

store-bought pizza sauce

½ cup(s), or tomato sauce

whole wheat tortilla(s)

4 medium

dried oregano

1 tsp

shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

¾ cup(s)


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium (or a grill pan over medium-high heat). Place sausage, onion and pepper on grill in a grill basket; cook, flipping once, until sausage is golden and vegetables start to brown, about 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from grill and set aside until ready to use.
  2. To prepare pizzas, spread 2 tablespoons of sauce on each tortilla. Sprinkle each with 1/4 teaspoon of dried oregano and then top each with 1/4 of sausage-vegetable mixture; top each with 3 tablespoons of cheese.
  3. Place pizzas on grill (or as many as will fit on grill pan at one time) and cook until edges begin to brown, about 3 to 5 minutes; rotate pizzas. Continue cooking until cheese is bubbly, about 2 to 4 minutes more. Yields 1 pizza per serving.


Cooking time on an outdoor grill may vary slightly from a grill pan.
