Margherita Pizza Tostada

Margherita Pizza Tostada:

As a kid, I loved pizza, but only wanted the thin crunchy crust, as i learned how to build my own pizzas I realized I didn't want to spend time tossing my own dough and wanted something lighter, so I used a tortilla instead. I came up with this recipe for margherita pizza tostadas, and they're quick, easy to make, and delicious.

I love making margherita pizza tostadas because they're a fun and unique way to serve pizza. The tortillas are crispy and the toppings are fresh and flavorful. They're also a great way to satisfy my pizza cravings without having to order takeout. They are also a great easy appetizer you can customize to your liking.

  • Ingredients: You can use any type of tortilla that you like, such as corn tortillas, flour tortillas, or whole-wheat tortillas.
  • Toppings: In addition to the classic margherita pizza toppings of mozzarella cheese, sliced tomatoes, and fresh basil, you can also add other toppings, such as sliced pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, or onions.
  • Cooking: If you are baking the tostadas in the oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake the tostadas for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Serving: Serve the tostadas immediately with your favorite dipping sauce, such as marinara sauce, ranch dressing, or blue cheese dressing.
Here are some additional tips for making margherita pizza tostadas:
  • For a crispier crust, brush the tortillas with olive oil before baking or air frying.
  • If you are using a lot of toppings, you may need to bake the tostadas for a few minutes longer.
  • Be careful not to overcook the tostadas, or they will become hard and dry.
  • If you are making the tostadas ahead of time, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. To reheat, bake the tostadas in a preheated oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
