Grilled Tortilla Pizza Margherita


This easier version of pizza is ready in a flash for impromptu pizza cravings! It’s lower in carbs than a full crust pizza and super popular with kids. Make these easily on the grill and you don’t even need to heat up the house.



18” tortilla of choice, see notes

1 teaspoon olive oil for brushing the tortillas edges

2 tablespoons Homemade Marinara, or tomato sauce of choice

2 ounces fresh mozzarella, torn into small pieces, 1/3 cup, or grated mozzarella

23 basil leaves cut into thin slivers (chiffonade)

Flaked sea salt for topping if desired


Preheat the grill over high heat, then lower the heat to maintain a temperature between 350º-400ºF.

These tortilla pizzas can also be cooked in the oven at 425ºF for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese melts and the tortilla is crispy.

Lightly brush the edges of each side of the tortilla with olive oil and place it on a cutting board.

Spread the marinara evenly over the tortilla, using more or less depending on the size of your tortilla.

Break the mozzarella up into small pieces, and place them evenly across the top.

Carefully slide the tortilla (using a spatula to help) onto the grill.

Cook until the cheese is melty – about 3-5 minutes.

Sprinkle with your thinly sliced basil and optional sea salt, and enjoy!


This recipe is great for anything from a snack to pizza parties where everyone makes their own customized pizza with every topping imaginable!
Siete makes great paleo tortillas if you can’t have any grains. I use the almond flour ones for these pizzas.
