Ultra Thin Crust Portobello & Ham Pizza

Portobello is my favourite type of mushroom.
It's rich earthy robust flavour just makes other mushrooms pale in comparison. Whenever it's on sale at the supermarket, I'm sure to reach for a pack.

Usually, it becomes mushroom pasta. But today, it's pizza!
Ultra thin crust pizza, using wraps as the crust. Easy peasy!

I don't really have an exact recipe. Unlike cakes and the likes, it's not as critical to get the proportions right. It's really about what you like. So, here goes...

Pizza crust:
Tortilla wraps (your choice of plain, wholemeal or flavoured)

Tomato puree or sauce, 3-4 tbs per pizza
Sugar, 1 tsp per pizza
Balsamic vinegar, 1/4 tsp per pizza

Onions, thinly sliced
Fresh oregano, chopped
Ham, sliced
Portobello mushrooms, thinly sliced
Cheese (mozarella and red cheddar), grated

1 - Brush tortilla with olive oil. (This prevents the crust from becoming soggy from the sauce.)
2 - Spread sauce till about 1/2" from the edge.
3 - Spread topping in layer by layer, ending with the cheese.
4 - Bake at 220*C for about 10 min till cheese has melted and edges of tortilla are brown.

Thumbs up from hubby! He even asked for a second helping :)
It's a quick and easy meal. Tastes great. No oily frying. Minimal utensils = less washing.
Definitely gonna make more of this in future! Perhaps with smoked salmon, dill yoghurt and rocket salad. Yumm....

I like the idea of using Tortilla wrap as pizza.

This is such a great idea to use tortilla to make the pizza! You know today I just made wholewheat Hawaiian pizza too, but the traditional method, so much more work, lol! Thanks for the idea. :)

Zoe and Bee,
Thanks for dropping by. This is so easy and it tastes great! And b'cos it's thin crust, it's better for the figure too :)

I use this too when I'm lazy, sometimes I use pita bread, or whatever I have in my freezer. Save me lots of time kneading dough from scratch. Thanks for the reminder, we've not had pizza for a while.
