Tortilla Veggie “Meatball” Pizza for One

in Entrees

tortilla meatball pizza 2Looks meaty, eh?  But don’t let the picture fool you.  This pizza is vegan all the way.

tortilla meatball pizza 4On occasion, the recipes that I share here on CEVG are rather elaborate.  This recipe?  Not so much.  I think you appreciate that now and then though, am I right?  If you can turn on your oven, chop some veggies, and throw everything onto a tortilla, then you can handle this one.  That’s right.  Everyone can whip up a tasty and healthy vegetarian lunch or dinner with very little skill or effort.  This is vegetarian cooking for everyone at its finest.

tortilla meatball pizza 6Tortilla Veggie “Meatball” Pizza for One


1 tortilla (I used a brown rice tortilla)
1/3 to 1/2 cup pizza sauce
1/4 tsp pizza or Italian seasoning
1 small handful of fresh spinach
1/8 cup chopped red bell peppers
2 TB chopped yellow or white onion
2 TB sauerkraut
4 vegan “meatballs” (I used Amy’s brand)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Place tortilla on a baking sheet and “toast” it a bit in the oven for approximately 3 to 5 minutes.

3. While the tortilla is toasting, cook the “meatballs” according to package directions.  I microwaved mine for 1 1/2 minutes.

4. Remove the tortilla from the oven, top it with the pizza sauce, and pile on the seasonings and toppings.  I separated each meatball into about four pieces so that they resembled pieces of sausage.

5. Bake the pizza for approximately 5 to 7 minutes.

6. Turn the broiler on low and broil for approximately 2 to 3 minutes, or until the tortilla is crispy.  Be sure to watch the pizza to ensure that it does not burn.

tortilla meatball pizza 5I like pizza as much as the next girl.  And I have also been known to polish off an entire medium-sized pizza on my own.  Hey, I like to eat.  But when I am just cooking for myself and do not want to eat so much that I feel like I am about to burst, the tortilla pizza is my go-to pie.  Feel free to change up the toppings (though I highly recommend keeping the “meatballs”) and use a regular-sized crust if you are feeding a crowd (or just two).  That is the best thing about pizza.  It is so darn versatile…oh, and delicious! <– That is actually the best part.

    Totally random but I just saw that Amy's came out with Swedish meatless meatballs. Have you seen them/tried them yet? Meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles recently posted...Taper Week Workouts And Race Day EssentialsMy Profile

      You and me both! Anyone who doesn't like pizza is a little suspicious... ;)

    Sounds like a delicious flavor combo! I love tortilla pizzas and don't make them nearly often enough.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 8, 2014, 10:19 am
      I went through a phase when I first become a vegetarian where I ate them ALL the time. And then I completely forgot about them for like a year. I am glad they are back in my life ;)

    Love this! So simple! Sometimes I think we get so caught up in the fancy recipes, we forget that sometimes simple is best! Stephanie @ My Freckled Life recently posted...Sh*t Healthy People SayMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 8, 2014, 10:42 am
      That is SO true. I used to make these all the time and then "forgot" about them probably because I was so busy cooking up other recipes. I am glad that I remembered to make them ;)

    Looks tasty, going to try to trick my meat loving husband on this gem!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 8, 2014, 1:33 pm
      Haha, do it!! I swear, some of the meat substitutes out there really seem pretty real.

      That is such a great tradition to have! I definitely need to start incorporating pizza into my meal plans more often.
  • Ginny McMeans April 8, 2014, 8:40 pm
    Yummy, yummy. I have never had Amy's meatballs and I will have to check them out. Thanks!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 9, 2014, 11:40 am
      They are a fairly new product and I really enjoy them. You should defintiely try them out!
  • Jessie April 8, 2014, 9:35 pm
    I LOVE pizza & could have no problem polishing off TWO of these babies in one sitting. Please don't judge me, I just have a hard time stopping @ one tortilla shell :) LOL
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 9, 2014, 11:41 am
      Hey, NO judging here! I certainly don't blame you. Each time after I finish eating one of these I tend to think.."Hmm, I could totally eat more..." Next time I should just make two ;)
  • samantha April 9, 2014, 5:46 am
    Good idea! I never think to use tortillas as a pizza base. I should keep some in the freezer for the nights that I'm oh so tempted by the pizza delivery people. Would probably be faster (and yummier) to just pop one of these in the oven, rather than waiting for a delivery guy! samantha recently posted...Raw food diet – Fad or Fab?My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl April 9, 2014, 11:42 am
      You definitely should! I keep mine in the freezer and then just pop them out a few minutes before, crisp them up in the oven, and then add the toppings....SUPER easy and tasty!
