Pesto, Mozzarella, and Tomato Tortilla Pizza

  • 1/2 medium vine-ripened tomato, thinly sliced

Preparation:

  2. Place in nonstick frying pan and heat over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes, until tortilla is nicely browned on underside and the cheese is melted and bubbly on top. Cut into 4 wedges.
