Recipe for pizza Tortillas:

Flour tortillas
BBQ sauce or tomato sauce
Garlic powder
Italian seasoning
Dash of cayenne pepper
Mozzarella cheese
Or whatever you’d like on it

Cook pepperonis in frying pan first if you like them crispy for about 1 minute or till you like em. Take em out and rest em on a paper towel lined plate. Open tomato sauce and pour in bowl and mix spices in. Put about two or 3 tablespoons of sauce on each tortilla. Top with Mozz cheese, pineapples, jalapeƱos, and pepperonis or whatever toppings you like. I put pizzas in microwave for about 35 seconds to preheat so the cheese and sauce will cook better, and the tortilla doesn’t burn when in frying pan. You can cook two at a time if your frying pan is big enough. Place them in the same pan you cooked the pepperonis and cook on medium heat for about 4 minutes or until brown on bottom.

Children get your parents help and permission. They are tasty!!
