tortilla pizza

This week I’m pulling out all the stops for my easy recipe.  My recipe for Tortilla Pizza is great tasting an super easy! No need to make pizza bread, just pick up a package of tortillas.   And as a bonus this meal has a fraction of the bread you would normally consume with a pizza.  You can make a variety of toppings and let your family make individual pizzas.  I chose to make a vegetarian and a smoked salmon tortilla pizza.


Package of medium soft Tortillas

Package shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

Refried beans (canned)

Enchilada sauce (canned)

Diced green chilis (canned)

Red onion – thinly sliced

Tomato – thinly sliced

Avocado – wedge sliced

Fresh cilantro – chopped

Chili powder

Dried ground cumin


Step 1:  BBQ tortilla shells – heat grill to medium high.  Place tortilla on grill for about a minute each side to get grill marks and firm the tortilla.


Step 2:  Re-fried beans.  In large pot add the can of re-fried beans, 1/2 cup enchilada sauce, 1 Tbsp. water, 1 Tbsp diced green chilis, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/4 tsp ground cumin.  Stir and heat on medium.  While heating beans smash larger beans to get a smoother puree.

Step 3:  Spread re-fried beans on the tortilla, cover beans with cheese, and tomato slices, red onion slices, (and if you want smoked salmon etc.) and BBQ, microwave, or use oven to melt cheese.

Step 4:  Plate the individual pizza and add avocado wedges and cilantro.

Step5:   Enjoy.


I’m pretty excited to be doing my first book signing this Sunday August 25 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., at Apostrophe Books in lovely Belmont Shore (Long Beach, CA).  I was thrilled to be invited for a signing at one of the great indie SoCal book stores.  My novel GOLDPLAY was originally a screenplay that won an award.  But, getting a screenplay into production is another matter.  I love the story, so I opted to write the book while waiting on the screenplay development.



Recently discharged, unofficial Army Ranger, Amber Reyes now residing in Los Angeles meets ex-FBI agent Jack Fields.  They merge their formidable skill sets to form 3-D Security.  London hires them to do a simple security review of a firm that stores gold for the wealthy.  Now all they have to do to grow their new plum client is live long enough to thwart an elaborate gold theft scheme.



If you are in the area drop by Apostrophe Books and say hi!

Good Eating and Table Talk,
