Last night I was exhausted from a busy day of cleaning for two house showings--we even vacuumed the driveway to get rid of the tree droppings, I hadn't defrosted anything for dinner so I was looking for a quick and easy way out.

I made garbage pizza out of the tortillas and even grilled them so I didn't have to dirty the oven. How's that for lazy?


4 lg tortillas
4 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms, sautéed
1/2 cup marinated artichoke hearts (sliced - hard leaves removed)
1/4 black olives (sliced)
1 small onion, thinly sliced and sautéed
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 cup mozzarella, shredded

Preheat the BBQ grill.

Sauté the onions and mushrooms in separate or same pan, depending on preferences. Set aside. Slice the artichoke hearts. Set aside.

Place the four tortillas on a flat surface such as a large tray. Using a pastry brush, paint each tortilla with the olive oil. Spread equal amounts of tomato sauce around each tortilla and add the ingredients of your choice, sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese and top with mozzarella.

Place as many tortilla's on the grill as will fit and close the cover and allow to grill until cheese is melted. But don't walk away just yet. The cheese melts quickly so keep checking until you're satisfied. Plate and cut into four slices.

 Brace yourself because you're in for a real treat. Grilling them gives the tortilla a crisp, slightly smoky taste that's undeniably delicious! Bon Appetit!!!
