Real Mom Eats: Tortilla Pizzas

At my house, as parents of two little ones, full time jobs and running a small business, we find that we are pressed for time and often hungry. One of our go-to snacks are Tortilla Pizzas. With as little as 3 ingredients and about 10 minutes, you can have a yummy snack that even my two year old will eat.

Here's what we use:
4 flour tortillas
Jarred Spaghetti Sauce (we like Newman's Own Marinara or Ragu' Robusto), about 2 tablespoons per tortilla
Shredded Cheese (we like use Sargento's 4 Cheese Italian)
An oiled cookie sheet
Any other toppings you like, we use shredded spinach, sausage, leftover chicken, ect.

Preheat the oven to 425F.
Place the the tortillas on the oiled cookie sheet.
Spread about 2 tablespoons of sauce per tortilla, sprinkle with cheese and toppings.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until hot and bubbly with golden brown edges.
