For this pizza, I used a finely shredded mozzarella; wanted it to melt quickly, but not be so gooey that it would act more like cement than a good cheese. I like using Sargento brand cheeses; they taste so much fresher, and they've got a good variety of, not just mixtures, but the way the cheeses are sliced or shredded. I used my homemade pasta sauce, since it already had a great infusion of garlic and Italian herbs in it; and the fresh tomatoes I used make it an out of this world sauce. Sorry, not being humble when it comes to my sauce. I only used one tortilla; I wanted a pizza, not a stuffed pizza (two layers of dough with toppings/sauce inside), nor a Mexican pizza which, to me, looks like a quesadilla. I also used a nonstick pizza pan which I preheated in the oven; hot pan and oven ensures a crispy pizza. The brushing of olive oil let the untopped edges crisp up golden brown; the hot pizza pan allowed the bottom of the tortilla to do the same. It was a most enjoyable eating experience!!!
So here goes, and whether it is just for you or with another person; or even make it with your children; enjoy!
1 (10 – 12 inch) flour tortilla½ tsp olive oil
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided in half
½ cup pizza sauce
Preheat oven to 450F; place inside a 12 inch nonstick pizza pan to allow it to preheat with the oven.
Place tortilla on a plate or board from which it can be easily transferred. Brush the tortilla with the olive oil; spread half the cheese to within one inch of the edge. Pour the sauce, starting in the center and work outwards; spread remaining half of cheese over the tortilla.
