Tortilla Pizzas with Feta Cheese, Tomatoes, and Olives

This was a GREAT, easy recipe. I feel like it was pretty healthy as well. I didn't have any feta cheese, but did have a pinch of parmesan, gouda, and gruyere...They did just fine and both B and I loved this!!

  • 4 (8inch) flour (wheat) tortillas
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

The topping:

  • 4 plum tomatoes, finely diced
  • 12 black olives (such as Kalamata or oilcured olives) pitted and halved
  • 1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced paper thin
  • 1/2 cup thin slivers red onion
  • 4 teaspoons finely chopped oregano, or 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Generous seasoning freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons fruity olive oil
  • 8 ounces (1 1/2 cups) finely crumbled feta cheese


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Using 2 baking sheets, place 2 tortillas side by side on each sheet. With a pastry brush, lightly brush each tortilla with some of the olive oil. Flip the tortillas and brush again. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, flipping over the tortillas and alternating the placement of the baking sheets halfway through the cooking time. Also, during the first few minutes, use a knife point to pop any air bubbles that might develop. The tortillas should be golden and crisp when done. (The tortillas may be prepared to this point up to 3 days in advance. Cool completely, seal in a plastic bag, and refrigerate until ready to use.)

In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, olives, zucchini, onion slivers, oregano, pepper, and olive oil and toss well. Gently fold in the feta cheese. Scatter all over the 4 tortillas. Bake 12 minutes, or until the feta is sizzling and the zucchini softened. Alternate the placement of the baking sheets halfway during the cooking time. Cut and serve immediately

Thanks for the great recipe and also wanted to share my love for tortilla pizzas too! I have to admit that I make this at least 2-3 times a week for dinner.

Not sure if you ever tried La Tortilla Factory Low Carb/High Fiber Tortillas. They are only 80cals per tortilla and taste great!

They are a great size for pizza although we use the wraps for all of my meals too – breakfast (egg burritos), lunch (all types of wraps such as turkey, veggie..etc) and dinner although they can be also used for snacks (you just have to get creative).

If you are interested, we list one of my favorite recipes (Italian Veggie Pizza) on our site.

Hope you like the recipe! Thanks for great post and forward to reading more!
