Tortilla Pizza Primavera

I found this recipe stashed away in some files on my computer. We've never tried it until now, and I'm so glad we did! Obviously you can pick your own toppings, we strayed a bit from the recipe, but I'll share exactly what the recipe says and then you can go from there!

Tortilla Pizza Primavera

2 Cruz 10 inch flour tortillas Burrito style (OR) already made pizza crust
olive oil
5 oz. monterey jack cheese
5 oz. cheddar cheese
2 cups cherry tomatoes quartered
1/2 cup fresh chopped basil
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup ripe chopped olives
cracked black pepper

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly brush tortilla with olive oil.
2. Place on baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes on each side or until crisp and golden brown.
3. Remove from oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees. Top each tortilla with half the tomato, basil, onion, olives, and shredded cheese.
4. Sprinkle with pepper to taste. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

Here's a picture below that uses different toppings...we used more traditional toppings you see below...
