Healthy Mexican Pizza

Yesterday I had a craving, one of those cravings from your childhood. When my sister and I were little our mom used to make us “oven cheese crisps”. Basically she buttered up a tortilla, baked it until crispy, added a bunch of cheese and baked it some more until bubbly. Delicious! But not a real grown up meal or real nutritious. So, I decided to “grow up” my craving, and Healthy Mexican Pizza was born!

  • 1 small tortilla
  • 1 oz shredded cheese
  • 3 oz cooked shredded chicken
  • veggies of choice
  • For serving
  • salsa
  • light sourcream


  1. Preheat oven to "low" broil or 400F
  2. Place tortilla on baking sheet and bake, flipping occassionally, until golden and crisp
  3. Arrange chicken and veggies on tortilla and top with cheese

I heated my chicken first because I found that it doesn't get warm enough if I don't.
