Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
- Olive oil cooking spray
- Ground sirloin or extra lean ground beef (170g) 6oz
- Salt ¼ tsp
- Pepper 1/8 tsp
- Yellow onion (small diced) ¼ cup
- Red pepper (small diced) ¼ cup
- Garlic (minced) 2 tsp
- Tomato (small diced) ¼ cup
- BBQ sauce 2 tbsp
- Whole wheat tortilla 1
- Pineapple (tidbits or chopped) ¼ cup
- Aged white cheddar ½ cup (I used half of what the recipe called for)
Preheat oven to 400 F. Preheat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Lightly coat with spray, add the ground meat and season with salt and pepper. Sauté the beef until lightly browned and cooked all the way through. Add the onions, peppers and garlic and sauté for 1 minute more. Add the tomato and BBQ sauce, stir until combined and remove from heat. Lightly coat a baking sheet with spray and place the tortilla shell on the tray. Spread the beef and vegetable mixture evenly on the shell, leaving the outside half inch for the crust. Top with the pineapple and cheese and then place in the oven. Bake until cheese is melted and shell is nicely toasted (about 10 minutes). Serves 1 large or 2 small.
I’m from Texas, and this pizza ain’t Texan…just saying. However, it was extremely easy to make and very tasty. Once the beef was cooked and peppers were chopped, the rest was a cake walk. If I had to pick out one drawback it would be the tortilla was a bit soggy. I think next time I prepare this meal, I will heat the shell up early so that is already crispy and I won’t have to leave the pizza in the oven as long. Also, I forgot the pineapple. Next time, I will add pineapple, because I love pineapple! Enjoy.
