Cheeseburger tortilla pizza
This quick, weeknight recipe morphs everyone’s two all-time favorites into one tasty dish. Piled high with lettuce and tomatoes these thin-crust pizzas can serve as a full meal. Using whole-wheat tortillas for the crust is the trick to making them at home pronto – they only need to bake in the oven about 5 to 7 minutes to get super-crisp. They come together even faster if you brown the ground beef and onion mixture and build your pizzas on baking sheets while the oven preheats. Ground beef gives this meal its signature burger flavor but ground turkey breast makes a good substitute if that’s what you have on hand.
