You will need a list of simple ingredients to prepare this easy goat cheese pizza:
Tortilla: large store-bought or homemade wheat tortilla for the crust.
Tomato Sauce: I used a plain tomato sauce. You can use pizza or pasta sauce instead.
Goat Cheese: I used soft goat cheese. You can also use crumbled goat cheese. It goes so well with the rest of the ingredients.
Cherry Tomatoes: cut in half fresh cherry tomatoes.
Fresh Chives: green chives is a must to go on this tortilla goat cheese pizza. You can also use green onions instead.
Dry Basil: a little bit of dry basil on top of the sauce for extra flavors. You can use a fresh one as well.
How to make tortilla pizza in the air fryer
Spread the Sauce - place the wheat tortilla in an air fryer basket. Use a spoon to spread the sauce on top, leaving an edge. Sprinkle the sauce with some dry basil.
Add Toppings - now, add crumbles of coat cheese, cut in half cherry tomatoes, and finely chopped chives.
Air Fry - insert the basket into the air fryer unit. Set the temperature to 390° and air fry the pizza for 4-5 minutes or until the cheese softens and tomatoes warm up.
Note: goat cheese does not melt the way cows cheese does. It only softens after cooking and will remain in crumbs on your pizza.
Hint: you can use so many different toppings. I always use the leftovers I have in the fridge to make this pizza to prevent food waste.
This goat pizza is a single-serving pizza. It is light and low in calories. It can be split into two servings for younger kids.
This air fryer tortilla pizza served with soup or salad makes a satisfying and healthy lunch.
I recommend enjoying this pizza right away. But if you happen to have some leftovers, wrap the pizza in foil and store it in the fridge for about two days.
If you use a different air fryer the cooking time may vary. The pizza is ready when the cheese softens and the tomatoes are hot.
For this recipe, I used my Ninja Air fryer.
If you do not have an air fryer, cook the tortilla pizza in the oven at 400°. Make sure to use some parchment paper if you choose the oven method.
Nutritious variations and substitutions
- use a tomato sauce with hidden veggies or even pumpkin pasta sauce
- add some fresh spinach on top
- when making it vegan, add some nutritional yeast for extra nutrients and flavor.
