Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    6 medium size corn tortillas
    1/2 cup pizza sauce
    1 cup mushrooms, sliced (I used about 6 whole)
    1/2 green bell pepper, cut into strips
    approx. 1/2 cup finely shredded pizza cheese
    1/2 cup fire-roasted tomatoes, canned

Tips

*These are better eaten with a knife and fork. They can be quite messy, esp. if you like a lot of sauce.
*If you choose to add pepperoni slices (about 4 per tortilla), the calories per serving jumps from 108 calories to 210.
*I used the quick broiler method for melting cheese and keeping tortillas relatively soft, but you may prefer to bake them in regular oven for 10-15 minutes until crispy brown.
*Individually these make a great snack or appetizer, or eat two or three for a meal.


Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Chop whole mushrooms (or used pre-sliced) into slices. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray and place mushroom slices evenly in one layer. Place in oven while you are prepping other toppings. (Bake them for approximately 5 minutes to reduce water content). Slice 1/2 green bell pepper into strips. When mushrooms are finished, remove from pan and turn oven on broiler.

Spread out corn tortillas. You can fit about 6 on a cookie sheet with sides overlapping a little bit. Spread approx. 1 Tbsp. pizza sauce on each tortilla, more or less according to your liking. Add some fire-roasted diced tomatoes according to your preference. (these are like sauce in themselves) Sprinkle green peppers and mushrooms on top and sprinkle on shredded pizza cheese.

Place under broiler for a couple minutes. Watch closely until cheese is melted to desired doneness (the cheese turned out a little browned, but I enjoy that).

Allow to cool slightly and serve. Be careful. These are hot!
