We all have those days where you’re running short on time and you need something quick to fill hungry bellies. Or those moments when your family decides that you’re a short order cook, and wants different meals. Well, I have a solution to your problems, Tortilla Pizza Rollups! There fun, simple, and can be packed full of whatever your family is craving. Plus, I find there a super easy way to add veggies to your kid’s food without it being fussy for you or them! We can’t forget the obvious as well, they are essentially tacos dressed like a pizza, rolled up, and baked until crispy, who’s going to say no? No one, which is why these are almost the perfect food!
Tortilla Pizza Rollups
In our house, pizza is always on the menu. We strive for once a week, but there have been times that pizza was featured more than twice! That’s why I try to get as creative with my pizza making as possible. Between changing out the crusts, mixing up the toppings, and playing with new flavors of cheese to use, the possibilities are always endless. One of my absolute favorite ways to make a quick and healthy pizza for my family is by using tortillas. What’s so great about them is there are so many varieties, like gluten-free, sprouted grain, or even grain free. Plus, you can choose from small, medium, or large just like at a pizza parlor!

Another reason I love pizza is because the toppings are endless. You can use cheese, dairy or not, as many veggies as you can find at the store, and the different sauces that can be used in place of marinara are amazing, like using ranch or even hummus! Which is why rolling up your tortilla pizza makes it even better, they are fabulous for dipping into soups or even quick snacks. Try a grilled cheese and tomato next time you have a bowl of Broccoli Soup, or maybe instead you could make a hot and gooey right out of the oven PB and Jelly for a fast snack to hold the family over until the next meal! Add in a banana and nuts/seeds to create an easy lunch box replacement for the standard sandwich.
Do you remember how I said they were great for getting veggies into your little one’s bellies? Well, it’s absolutely true! Not only can you add veggies as a topping, but they can also be placed into the sauce. One of my favorite ways to sneak in some extra veggies for my daughter is by blending our marinara with whatever veggies I have on hand, this time it was spinach and mushrooms. Once the veggies are blended thoroughly, even the pickiest of children will never know what’s inside! Add in their favorite pizza toppings, the cute factor of eating rolled up food, and you are sure to have a winner on everyone’s plate.
Lastly, the best part of these cuties, are that they can be made in bulk, frozen, and then used throughout the week or month. Next time you have hangry kids at your feet, pop a few into the oven, wait 10mins, and then sit back while you enjoy a moment of silence. Or the next time you have a sleepover or party going on, they make the perfect appetizer to pass around! You’ll always have a snack or meal at your fingertips, and no one has to go unhappy or hungry.
