Pizza with tortillas? You bet! By swapping traditional dough for tortillas, you can make delicious and nutritious personal-sized pizzas for the whole family. The best part is that they’re easy to prepare and offer a variety of nutritional options based on your tortilla choice, so go ahead and experiment with all of our Mission Better for You tortillas to find the perfect healthier pizza for your crew. To get you started, we’ve rounded up five of the tastiest tortilla pizzas that are also gluten free, so go ahead and indulge without compromising your nutrition goals!

Gluten Free Pizza Tacos

Let’s face it: if you’re using tortillas as a pizza base, you might as well add some delicious taco flavors to the top! A Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wrap makes the perfect crispy crust for your toppings. To make these gluten free pizzas even easier, add marinara sauce to your cooked mushrooms and ground meat before placing on the tortilla – you won’t have to worry about things being too runny in the oven. Make sure to add plenty of your favorite cheese on top, then broil for a few minutes until everything is crispy.

Chicken Pesto Tortilla Pizza

If you’re an adventurous pizza-eater then you’ll love this gluten free pizza idea featuring bold flavors. For the easiest prep possible, buy premade pesto and rotisserie chicken so that all you have to do is assemble and bake! The feta cheese, basil, and balsamic glaze add some extra pizazz to this pizza. By using our Cauliflower Tortillas, you’ll have a gluten free option that the whole family will love (and you’ll love adding in the extra bit of veggies to the meal).

Gluten Free Tortilla Pizza

It’s a classic (but also deliciously gluten-free): cheesy, crunchy pizza served on a Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wrap. Not only are these pizzas healthier and full of flavor, but they’re so easy you’ll be able to offer pizza night more than once a week! The secret here is to build a two-layer pizza with cheese and sauce sandwiched between two fluffy tortillas then topped with everyone’s favorites. A few minutes in the oven is all you need to serve warm, bubbly cheese and crispy tortilla crusts. Let the whole family get in on the prep by choosing their favorite toppings and assembling it as a pizza bar that you’ll feel good about serving.

Mexican Pizza

These cheesy and delicious Mexican pizzas are the perfect blend of two favorites, and they’re easy to make, too! If your family loves this meal, but you’d like a healthier version, use our Super Size White Corn Tortillas instead of traditional flour – corn tortillas are naturally gluten-free, and these super-size versions don’t skimp on the softness and strength. To prep the rest of your pizza ingredients, cook ground beef and onions on the stove while you crisp the tortillas in a separate skillet. Layer one tortilla with refried beans and meat, then cover with a second tortilla and top with cheese and other goodies. Pop into the oven for a few minutes, then enjoy!

Breakfast Pizzas

Think pizza is just for dinner? Think again with these nutritious and delicious breakfast pizzas. Instead of a hearty marinara sauce, use herbed cream cheese and swap the more traditional toppings for egg whites and breakfast sausage. Cooking these pizzas uses a great trick – turn a cookie sheet upside down in the oven, preheat, and then place our Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps on the back to make them extra crispy. After a few minutes in the oven, these healthy breakfast pizzas will be ready to enjoy!

Whether you’d like something more traditional or Mexican-inspired, these gluten free tortilla pizzas will quickly earn a permanent place on your menu.
