I’m always looking for easy, new, kid-friendly lunch and snack ideas, especially the kind that can be customized to everyone’s different tastes. These little baked pizza tortilla cups are simple to make, perfect for little fingers to pick up, fulfill the pizza craving for lunch or a snack, and are the perfect little bites for appetizers, too.
Faster than you can cook a frozen pizza, you can have these bite-sized cups done, with simple, wholesome ingredients and way less expensive for what you get.
Use a glass or round cookie cutter to cut circles out of flour tortillas.
Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray, and stuff a tortilla round into each section.
Fill with your preferred toppings and bake for about 12 minutes at 425 degrees.
For the kids, I just used sauce and cheese. For the adults, I used cooked ground beef, sauce and cheese. But you could add anything to them, and you can fill a few with one flavor combination, a few with another.
Experiment with your favorite pizza toppings...the beauty of this recipe is that you can make a few with spinach, chicken, and feta cheese, even if you’re the only one that will eat it, and you won’t waste three-quarters of a pizza! Or bbq chicken and onions, spicy pepperoni and green peppers….use your imagination.
You can even make this for dinner and get the kids in on the action…set out a “pizza topping bar” and have them add their own topping combinations before you bake them! Wouldn’t that be perfect for a slumber party, too?
