In making a super easy dinner we decided to make pizza with mushrooms and olives. I bought a can of Eden pizza sauce which was quite good for a canned sauce. The mushrooms I sautéed in a bit of olive oil. And the olives were from a can. As I said super easy.
As for the crust I decided to try using Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Tortillas. This turned out to be a great idea. I prefer thin crust and here was a way to make your pizza much healthier. No flour! What I consider special about Food For Life breads is they are made from freshly sprouted certified organically grown live grains, contain absolutely no flour, and are richer in protein. By containing live grains they have more nutrients and also taste better. It is believed sprouting the grains is the only way to release all of the vital nutrients stored in whole grains. Water is added to the grains activating beneficial enzymes as they sprout and become a living food. Some of the nutrients increased by sprouting are vitamin A, vitamin C, B-vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium. The protein and carbohydrates are easier to digest when they come from sprouted grains. And lastly the fiber and bran content is not lost when sprouted. Sold yet? If you have not tried any Food For Life products definitely do. Their breads contain no refined sugar, no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, no shortening, and no cholesterol. Good stuff!
To bake: I was worried the tortilla would stick to a baking sheet so I used a piece of parchment paper in between. This worked out perfect. Once the pizza’s were assembled I cooked them in a 350° oven for about 10 minutes which allowed the tortilla to crisp up just enough. Then I broiled for a minute or two to brown the cheese. I will definitely be using these tortillas again. Both Josh and I were highly pleased with the result. Better than any pizza we have had in a long time. Now I just need to get creative and come up with something else to make other than pizza on these delicious tortillas!
We had a bit of leftover sauce and my lunch a few days later didn’t work out so I quickly made a new pizza to take with me to work. I rinsed and chopped a bunch of fresh spinach and heated it up in a saucepan with the rest of the leftover sauce. I then topped the tortilla with this followed by some cheese. After a 10-15 minute bake I let it cool and sliced. I think I liked the spinach pizza better than the original idea!
