Artichoke, Spinach and Basil Tortilla Pizza

Take-out pizza is delicious, but can be so pricey and frozen pizzas often lack the flavor you want when you bite into it. I almost always have ingredients on hand for a nice homemade pizza. Here's what I made for dinner on a recent busy night and it didn't take any longer than going out to pick one up for carry-out at a local pizzeria.

3 large burrito-size flour tortillas (they make for a nice, crispy crust)
1 15 oz. can pizza sauce (I use Pastorelli sauce - my very favorite) 
1 pound pizza sausage (I got the store made sausage from Strack and Van Til supermarkets)
1/2 jar of canned artichokes (These were from Trader Joe's)
handful of fresh basil leaves
olive oil
dried oregano
8 ounces  of mozzarella or pizza cheese blend

Brown sausage in skillet and drain. Lay out your tortillas on baking sheets. Spoon sauce onto tortillas and spread. Sprinkle a layer of cheese on top of sauce. Add cooked sausage, artichokes and basil. Add another layer of cheese. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with oregano. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. 


If you are going very heavy on the ingredients, it's a good idea to double your tortillas.

This also works very well on the grill and leaves the tortillas extra crispy.
