Quick Thin Crust Pizza

My husband is a genius. I would have never have thought to do this. When Tristan asked for pizza tonight for dinner my husband came up with this. I have to tell you, if you like thin crust pizza this is great, quick, easy and so good it doesn't feel like a cheat. Clearly you can put whatever you want on there, this is just my suggestion. Mighty good though!!

All the quantities are really based on how many “pizzas” you want to do. Each tortilla makes one personal pizza.

Ricotta (about 3 TBS per pizza)
Garlic (depends on taste but about ½ tsp per pizza)
½ tsp olive oil
Goat Cheese (feta would work as a substitute)
Artichoke Heats
Shredded Mozzarella

Mix Ricotta and Garlic and set aside (you might want to consider a dash of salt to the mixture). Heat olive oil in skillet. While oil heating, top tortilla evenly with Ricotta mixutre. Once coated, dot with goat cheese, artichoke hearts, and pepperoni. Cover with mozzarella. Cook on medium-high uncovered for 3 minutes, just enough to crisp the tortilla. Then cover and reduce heat to low until cheese melted. Cut and enjoy.
An excellent and tasty alternative is pesto instead of ricotta, and shrimp and feta instead of pepperoni, artichoke hearts, and goat cheese. Give it a try, it will literally take 10 minutes! Great in a pinch meal for the kids too (you might want to change the toppings!)
