{Dinner for One} Rainbow Chard Tortilla Pizza

by Aggies Kitchen on September 20, 2011

I really hope this recipe doesn’t scare you off. I know that it’s a little…different. It is honestly so delicious…I was hooked on it for days when my husband was out of town and I was dining alone in the evenings. Well, I wasn’t exactly alone, but when it’s just me and the kids, the kids are pretty happy with a bowl of buttered noodles and veggies while I am usually looking for something a little more exciting.

This tortilla pizza was exciting.

It was a random put together. I had sauteed some rainbow chard (oh how I love rainbow chard!!!) in a little olive oil and Aleppo pepper…and needed to eat it with something. I had some homemade salsa in the fridge, and the rest just happened. It was a building process…the beans and Ezekiel tortilla were my protein, the greens my super veggie, and the salsa was the flavor.

I can seriously eat like this everyday.

Rainbow Chard Tortilla Pizza

Recipe from Aggie’s Kitchen

Ezekiel Sprouted Tortilla
Sauteed Rainbow Chard with Aleppo Pepper
Pinto Beans, drained, rinsed and dried (I prefer Bush’s Beans pintos)
Red Onion, sliced
Homemade Salsa

Pre-heat oven or toaster oven to 400.

Take your defrosted Ezekiel tortilla and place on baking sheet (tip: to keep bottom of tortilla crisp and to avoid getting too soggy, I preheat baking sheet with the oven so that it’s already hot when the tortilla hits it). Spread thin layer of salsa on tortilla then top with thinly sliced red onion, sauteed rainbow chard and pinto beans. Bake in oven for about 5-7 minutes or until tortilla is crisp and slightly browned. Take out and let cool. Drizzle salsa over top, slice and serve (to yourself).

Oh no, this recipe isn’t scaring me off at all. Actually, it looks pretty darn good to me. It looks as though it’s packed with flavor (and nutrients).

I love using tortillas for pizza, they’re so yummy. I usually end up folding them over into a sandwich, lol. Love your Mexican toppings, sounds good.

this sounds fabulous to me! I love making meals for one like this when my hubby is out of town or at class late!

This tortilla swiss chard and pinto combination does look good and with the hot pepper. I have rainbow swiss chard coming up in my garden right now, I think here in Florida it might be a fall veggie. I sure hope so.

What a creative spin on pizza! I bet it tastes delicious and I imagine its a good source of fiber with all of those fabulous ingredients you used. Another wonderful recipe to add to my “to cook” list.

This is right up my alley! I love Ezekiel tortillas, etc. I am kind of addicted to their English muffins lately…

Sounds good to me! But I like just about everything “different” :)

That is a pizza I could eat every day too! Although I know some people don’t like swiss chard, it happens to be one of my favorites – I love the rainbow chard best of all – so naturally beautiful.
