Courtesy of Monsieur Jacques Pepin, we have a new pizza recipe. I can't decide if I like it better than our grilled pizza or not, but let me tell you, the fact that it even comes close means it's pretty gosh-darned good.
The things that might put this one over the top? First of all, it's sooo easy. The crust is just a tortilla shell lightly brushed with olive oil. As long as you have a tortilla shell, fifteen minutes later you can have pizza. Second, in comparison to the grilled pizza at least, it's sooo low-calorie. Even if you use a gigantic, spinach flavored tortilla (as we did here) your crust for the entire pizza tops out at 220 calories. The grilled pizza dough is roughly 1000, so it's really quite a difference.
I'm wondering if maybe I couldn't get the best of both worlds by grilling the tortilla?
