Tostada Pizzas

Posted on

These are an insanely quick & easy lunch, coming together in less than 5 minutes start to finish.  And so delicious, you will be amazed!

I was craving pizza but didn’t want to deal with rising dough or a hot oven on a sweaty summer day, so I came up with these when I spied the tostada shells on my counter.  You only need your broiler on in the oven for a couple minutes and you’ve got hot, melty, crispy pepperoni pizzas.  I bet these would be a huge hit with the kiddos, too.  Bonus for those with gluten sensitivity: they’re gluten-free! Score.

You will need:
Tostada shells
Pizza sauce (here‘s a quick and easy recipe that requires no cooking)
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Pepperoni
Other toppings of choice*

Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside. Spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce over each tostada shell, then sprinkle with cheese and toppings. Broil on high for 1-2 minutes, keeping the oven light on so you can remove them before they burn. They cook quickly so do keep an eye on them-mine took just a little over a minute to get melty and hot. Serve immediately.

*Be careful with adding too many veggies as they could water out and make the crispy tostada shells soggy.

  7. We make little pizzas like this too, so simple and quick. When it is 100+ outside all summer you find ways to use the heck out of your toaster oven, and these fit nicely.

  11. We do this with soft tortilla but I never thought of the tostadas before. I just saw them yesterday at the store and thought to buy them. I think I’ll pick some up next time, you’re right, the kids will love them!

  13. Very creative idea! I love it. I sometime wish I had a little counter top toaster oven so I could “bake” a single serving something and not feel like I am waisting energy.
