Thin-Crust Pizza ... Out of Flour Tortilla Dough

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

For one pizza:

Melt 1/2 stick of real butter.


Add salt, and other spices 
... I used coarse black pepper, and garlic.

(Most times I use "salt only" if making tortillas 
... depends upon my mood.)

Then add 2 cups of flour, and 1/2 cup of hot water.

(Sometimes I need a little bit more water.)


Stir with a fork until crumbly.


Then knead, and let sit for five minutes or so.


At this point
 ... if I was making a batch of tortillas ...
I'd make balls of dough, and roll out on a lightly floured surface.

But, tonight I am making pizza.

So I'll roll out the whole glob, and place over pizza pan.

And rub with olive oil.


Trim off the excess dough from the outer edge
... set aside for a snack.

Place panned dough in hot oven, and bake until golden brown
... the longer you bake, the crispier it'll get.

Spread pre-baked dough with your sauce and toppings
... in our case, we wanted a simple cheese pizza.


Put back in oven.

While the cheese was melting in the oven, 
we made "snacks" with the leftover dough
that was trimmed off.


Flour tortillas :)

Some of them can take on very unusual shapes
... especially if children are helping.

They are delicious
... there is NOTHING like homemade flour tortillas.


I think the pizzas are ready ...


... yeppers, and they were yummy.

  1. Sure looks good. I've used the large store bought tortillas for pizza before and they were pretty good.

  6. I don't know what's wrong but I can't comment on yours or Tffn's sites. Been trying for several days now. No problem with JW. Probably a good thing!

    Just wanted to say "when its time its time" to come back to Texas and thanks for the pizza dough recipe.

    Hope all is well up there in Mizzou.

    Sincerely, Andy

  7. Good to hear from you Andy ... it's time to come back home.

    Looking seriously at the beautiful Hill Country ... used to live in Wimberley, and am now setting my eyes upon Fred's burg.

    Don't know why you've had problems leaving a comment on here, but am glad you found a way around the glitch.

    (( hug ))
