How to Make

Bake in the preheated oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the edges are golden crispy.
Finally, remove the pan from the oven. Slice and serve!
Air Fryer Method
To prepare an air fryer tortilla pizza, start by taking out the air fryer basket.
Instead of transferring the unbaked pizza later, directly place the tortilla in the basket.
Next, add your desired sauce and toppings to the tortilla.
Set the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for approximately 5 to 6 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
However, since air fryers may vary, check the pizza around the 4-minute mark.
Finally, carefully remove the pizza from the air fryer. Slice and serve!
Expert Tips for Success
Choose tortillas that are not flimsy. Thicker ones hold up the toppings more easily.
Keep a close eye on the pizzas as they cook.
