It’s late and you’ve been up studying hard when you get a craving for something cheesy to chomp on. You grab the phone to order a large pie from the pizza place down the street, but to your dismay they are closed for the night. What is a hungry college student to do? Improvise!

This recipe is perfect for whipping up a pizza that is tasty enough to satisfy your late-night cravings. It’s easy to make and contains fewer calories than what you’d find in your standard pizza shop.

What you need: 

Flour tortilla 

Shredded cheese

Pizza or marinara sauce 

Olive oil 

Desired toppings 

What you do: 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat a tortilla with olive oil. Place directly on the middle of the rack of the preheated oven and cook until it is slightly golden colored (2-3 minutes). Chop your desired toppings. Once the tortilla is slightly golden, remove it from the oven and spread pizza or marinara sauce onto it. Sprinkle cheese and distribute toppings onto the tortilla before placing back into the oven. Cook for about five minutes and cool for two minutes before chowing down.
