How To Make Tomato Basil Pesto Flatbread Pizzas
Garlicky pesto flatbread pizzas are made with tender tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, and creamy mozzarella on top of flour tortillas, for a richer meal!
Set the oven rack about 6-inches from the heat source and preheat the oven’s broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Spread the tomato slices out on baking sheet. Drizzle some olive oil over slices.
Broil in the preheated oven for about 6 minutes until tender. Remove from oven and cool for about 5 minutes until easily handled. Peel the skin off the slices, then discard.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line another baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Brush both sides of each tortilla with olive oil and arrange on baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 8 minutes until lightly browned and crispy. Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes.
Spread 2 to 3 tablespoons of pesto in a thin layer over each tortilla. Top with mozzarella cheese slices, 8 basil leaves, and some roasted tomato slices.
Bake in the oven for 6 to 8 minutes until mozzarella cheese is melted. Cool slightly for about 2 minutes, before slicing with a pizza cutter.
Serve and enjoy.
Substitute the basil pesto base with homemade pizza sauce as an alternative for family members who don’t like pesto.
