Home-made pizza sauce and tortilla pizza recipes

I have always preferred thin-crusted pizzas (like Spizza’s) to classic hand-tossed thicker ones as the crunch of the crispy crust gives the pizza an inviting texture without filling me up so I can enjoy more varieties of different flavours.

At home, the husband and I eat tortilla wraps regularly so they will always be in my pantry. This time round, I decided to turn them around into something different for a change, well, partly because I was just too lazy to make my own pizza dough and I didn’t want to use a frozen one from the supermarket, lol. Good thing is, these wraps make instant fixes that save me a lot of time and hassle and they taste really good as pizza bases too!

And this was the minced beef version whose taste reminded me of beef nachos, lol. Delightfully delish! Crunchy, crispy and cheesy – all my 3 essential Cs of a good pizza. Yum. Want a slice?
