About The Recipe: Corn Tortilla Pizzas

I’ve made tortilla pizzas a million times with flour tortillas, whole wheat tortillas and einkron flour tortillas. But this was the first time I made a corn tortilla pizza. And I’m sure glad I did.

The corn tortilla crisps up nicely in the oven, and gives these pizzas a nacho-esque quality.

This is what the pizzas look like straight out of the oven, before the fresh toppings are added:

Make Tortilla Pizzas… With Corn Tortillas

Mexican or Tex-Mex toppings work really well with these pizzas (like refried beans and salsa chicken), but don’t be afraid to experiment with traditional pizza toppings.

I made a quick mozzarella and pepperoni pizza using a corn tortilla, and was very pleased with the outcome.

The crust was very crisp (my fave!) and it took seconds to throw together. Just follow the same directions as below – baking the tortilla so it becomes crisp before adding the toppings and baking awhile longer.

Mexican-Style Corn Tortilla Pizzas

Yield: 4 pizzas
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 27 minutes

The key to a delicious corn tortilla pizza is to make sure that the crust is crisp. I pre-bake the crusts so they are crisp before adding toppings. No one wants a soggy crust!


  • Olive oil
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 1/2 cup refried beans
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican-blend cheese
  • 8 grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 Roma tomato, chopped
  • 1 cup Romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 avocado, cut into small chunks
  • Ranch dressing, for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Brush both sides of tortilla shells with olive oil. Place tortilla shells directly on the oven rack. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes, until tortilla shells are crisp. Remove from oven and place on a baking sheet.
  2. Top each tortilla with 1 tablespoon refried beans, cheese, and tomatoes. Bake for an additional 6 to 7 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Top each (slightly) cooled pizza with lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, and ranch dressing. Cut each pizza in fourths and serve.
