Time for a pizza party: My family always gets overjoyed when they hear the word ‘PIZZA’. And almost every Friday calls for a pizza night in my family. Yes, we all love to celebrate a Friday evening with a beautiful looking mouth-watering pizza.

 

However, on some Fridays when I have less energy and a little time to make my own pizza dough, then I go for tortilla base pizzas. Tortillas make a nice, crunchy pizza crust. I have been making tortilla base pizzas for a couple of years now, but I don’t know why I never thought of giving it a name. May be because I always thought they are called tortilla pizza. It was during last year when I even made a joke over the name with my husband.

I said to him: “See, it has a tortilla base, and it’s a pizza. So why do we call it tortilla pizza? Why shouldn’t we call it a Tortizza or something”?

And he suggested: “Wow, it’s a cool (perfect to be precise) name. You should use it in some of your recipes.” But later I forgot about it completely.

Tortizza, tortizza, and tortizza everywhere: Last month I saw a tortilla pizza in a vegan cookbook in a local book store. And the name of the recipe was ‘Toritizza’! I was in a blue funk for a while since the time I saw this. Oh my gosh! ‘Tortizza’ — does it really exist? That bugged me, so I googled the name tortizza, and found out that there were plenty of tortizza recipes on the web. Silly me, why didn’t I use this name earlier. ‘Tortizza’!

So today I am sharing a tortizza recipe and name of this recipe is — ‘Caramelized Veggie Tortizza 2 Ways’.

What exactly is tortizza? It’s not quite a pizza. It’s also not really like a quesadilla. It’s somewhere in between of a quesadilla and a pizza! It’s cheesy and perfectly indulgent.

In definition: The tortizza is a tortilla wrap-based pizza alternative. The result? A seriously delicious, filler meal.
