Pizza Attempted on Tortilla

I really feel as if I've managed to find a version of everything I could ever want, and have it be low carb. Unfortunately, there's one major part of my history that I've failed to duplicate. That part is ... pizza. I was, and still am, a massive fan of pizza (I'm not alone, the average American family eats 30 pies a year!). I've tried to use all the carbquiks and protein isolates. I've tried cream cheese and eggs to make a sort of deep dish pizza quiche, etc. These yielded impressive results that looked and smelled like the real deal, but ... the taste was always a bit ... funky.

I don't know why, but I'm super resistant to the zucchini and cauliflower crusts. I'm stubborn and have thus far refused to try them. They're very probably awesome, just like caul-rice is awesome. I was also resistant to that. When I finally tried it, I was upset I hadn't tried it sooner!

I ordered a pre-made low carb crust online and it was ... blech. Not good. Not even a little bit. I still ate it, though.

Pizza is about the only dish that has completely stumped me. This simple dish is as close to the basic simple taste of a basic and simple pizza as I've managed to duplicate. It takes just over 5 minutes to bake and is actually really quite tasty! It's low carb, too!

It's not deep dish magic and it's not going to win any awards, but for a clear and delicious pizza fix ... this is the best way to go ... so far ...

... to be continued ...

Note: Because this is pizza on a tortilla, the "crust" doesn't rise, to hold the cheese and toppings in place. Go light on the toppings, or else it melts and goes everywhere and makes a big delicious mess.
