- Bell Pepper
- Roma Tomatoes

Just remember that if you are doing keto that the veggies have some carbs so you will want to take that into account when making your pizza.
Trim Healthy Mama’s you can have pretty much any of these just don’t overdo it on the tomatoes or the onions.
This is also a great meal to make when you have some leftovers in the fridge. The possibilities are endless. Grilled chicken leftovers with a little red onion, sugar free bbq sauce and mozzarella sounds amazing!
Leftover taco meat, olives and cheese would be a great Southwestern style pizza. Or just stick to the classic cheese and pepperoni for a more traditional approach.
Making A Low Carb Tortilla Pizza
So just when you thought life couldn’t get any better now that you have a delicious thin crust pizza, I’m going to tell you how easy these little pizzas are to make.
They are so easy! We eat them a lot for lunch or a last minute dinner for a busy weeknight.
In just around 10 minutes, you can have a yummy, cheesy pizza ready to eat. Hey, that’s way quicker than ordering delivery!
Toast the Tortilla
The first thing you want to do is toast your tortillas in a preheated oven at 350 degrees.
This will help crisp up the crust to that it will be portable and not soggy.
Toasting the tortilla is pretty much the most labor intensive part of the whole pizza making process. Just throw it right on the rack. No need to waste a baking sheet.
You need to watch it closely to make sure they don’t burn. And they burn pretty quick (don’t ask me how I know!)
I typically toast it for 3-5 minutes until lightly browned and firm. It should resemble more of a flat tostada shell after toasting vs. a soft taco shell.
Sauce & Toppings
Once the low carb tortilla is toasted, apply the sugar free pizza sauce. A couple of tablespoons will be plenty. Don’t go overboard with the sauce to avoid soggy crust.
Add cheese, meats and veggies. Return to the oven and cook for about 5 additional minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Remove from the oven and cut into slices.
Enjoy your low carb tortilla pizza and an ice cold Zevia cola for a treat that feels sinful but is totally on plan!
