My favorite way to use the fresh basil growing in my garden is in this little Tortilla Pizza. I created this recipe and it is a favorite of all who have tasted it! Perfect for lunch or in slices as an appetizer, it is quick and tasty and has only a few ingredients!
You can use any kind of tortilla you want. Sometimes I use whole wheat or spinach and sometimes plain. Put the tortilla on a baking sheet and spread a tiny bit of olive oil on it, particularly along the edges, so they will get crisp.
Slice a tomato in very thin slices all over the tortilla, add fresh basil leaves on top here and there, cover with Mexican cheese or mozzarella cheese.
Sometimes I add turkey pepperoni. Pop in a preheated oven at 375 for just 5 to 8 minutes until cheese is bubbly and edges crisp. That is it! The fresh basil is what makes it taste so amazing.
Each tortilla makes 4 slices, so I make one little pizza for each person.
Hope you are having a great day. It looks like rain here (finally) and I am in my studio ready to paint the rest of the afternoow away! Egretta
