Southwestern Tortilla Pizza

We love to make pizza at home. Have you ever tried it? Our way is a little unconventional, but it is full of flavor and taste amazing, and I want to share it with you today!

I start with a flour tortilla as the base. Of course tortillas are not as large as pizza dough can be, so we usually make one for each of us. The added advantage is that we each get our own pizza, our own way!

So, I love anything with southwestern flavor, and because we recently moved back to Las Vegas after being gone for quite a few years, I wanted this pizza to be tasty, fun, and bursting with over-the-top southwest flavor! I think it is, and I hope you like it!  


Southwestern Tortilla Pizza

(printable recipe at end of page)

Serves 1

1/2 Chicken Hatch Green Chile Smoked Sausage

1 flour Tortilla 

1/4-1/2 cup Salsa 

4 Cheese

1/4 cup Corn Niblets

1/4 cup chopped Onion

Dollop Sour Cream

Avocado Chunks


Wrap a sausage link in a paper towel and microwave for 5-10 seconds. You are warming the sausage to help you pull the casing off. If you have trouble removing it, microwave again for a few more seconds. Cut the sausage length wise. Pull the entire casing off and throw it away. Slice half of the sausage into 1/4" -1/2" wide. Then chop the slice in half.

Using 1/2 tablespoon of butter, pan fry the onions, corn, and sausage in a frying pan.


Spread the salsa over the tortilla and heat in a frying pan on medium heat.


Add the sausage, corn and onion mix to the pizza. 


Add cheese.


To get the cheese to melt quickly, keep your burner on low to medium and cover the pan with foil to help the process along. Keep a close eye on the process, because you don't want the cheese to burn.


Chop avocado into small bites.


Top pizza with a dollop of sour cream and scatter the avocado chunks over the top. Enjoy!
