5-minute Pizza

5-minute pizza

5-minute pizza! Sounds too good to be true? Not only can it be done but the result is really good!
This recipe came together one evening when we were working on a project and were craving a homemade pizza. The simplest pizza is always the best. Take the Margherita for instance, just a handful of ingredients, fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and a few fresh basil leaves. It seems so minimalist, but it is the best!

The problem is that I didn’t have time to make the dough and didn’t have any in the freezer either. And come to think of it, even if I had some, it would be completely frozen and require hours to thaw off!
Sure, we could have ordered pizza but that would have taken 35-40 minutes. So back to the drawing board!
So I checked the fridge and found burrito size flour tortillas. Maybe that could work!
Pizza sauce nad vegan mozzarellaWe had a bottle of pizza sauce, and a bottle of Miyoko’s liquid mozzarella cheese.
By the way, if you haven’t tried this plant-based mozzarella, you are in for a treat! It was designed specifically for pizzas! Instead of block cheese, this product is thick and liquid, making it the perfect addition to any pizza, and baked dish. It also last for a long time without going bad. I bought a bottle over a month ago and it somehow ended up in the back of the fridge behind some other bottles. So when I found it, I was sure that it had gone bad, but to my surprise it was perfectly good.

Cooking pizza

Pizzas are always baked and depending on the thickness of your pizza (thin or thick crust), the amount of toppings and your oven,  this can take anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes. So making pizza in 5 minutes was a quite a challenge! Obviously no oven could be used, as it would require 5-10 minutes for pre-heating. So, that leaves us with the stove! Unusual for pizzas but perfect for hot summer days where you don’t want to heat up the house. You can use a cast iron pan or a large non- stick frying pan.

Pizza toppings

This recipe only uses 5 ingredients but you can add more like capers, black olives.
Because the crust is super thin, you don’t want to pile up watery vegetables.
Keep it simple and fresh!
