My heart is absolutely bursting over this pizza!
I see your cardboard box pizza delivery staple and I raise you the most amaze-ball, crazy good, better than delivery Short Rib and Caramelized Shallot Tortilla Pizza!
So if you are like me and have a great affinity for pizza you must, I repeat MUST give this a try. While this exact recipe may take a little longer to prepare than delivery because I used short ribs; you can take the “tortilla crust” idea and top it with whatever you fancy!
Have some leftover BBQ chicken? Throw it on a tortilla with some BBQ sauce, red onion and cilantro.
Have some leftover fajitas from a night out at your favorite Mexican food joint? Throw it on a tortilla with some black beans, corn and salsa.
Boom! The options are endless.
Oh la la, it must be love!
I’ll just give you the basics. Y’all get creative! If you want my short rib recipe check it out here.
Ingredients: makes 1 tortilla pizza
Tortilla, I like the Ezekial brand
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 cup freshly shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup short ribs, shredded
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Slice the shallot into strips. In a skillet, melt the butter and add the shallot. Let caramelize, about 15 minutes. If they start to get too dark add a splash of water.
In a small saucepan, add the olive oil. Add the tomatoes and Italian seasoning then allow them to cook down about 15 minutes, long enough for them to burst and get to a sauce-like consistency.
Place your tortilla on a pizza pan or baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the tomato sauce on the bottom, top with the shredded mozzarella, shallot and short ribs.
Bake for about 12 minutes until the edges are crispy.
Proceed to devour.
