Mediterranean Tortilla Pizza

P1060512_lznThe other day my friend E came over at 17:30 (5:30 pm) for what we had planned to be “cook dinner and watch a movie”. Well, let’s just say we never got further than dinner and spend the rest of the evening vegging out in my room on the carpet, eating lots (and by that I mean lots) of junk food and discussing important things in life (exams, guys, E’s disgusting housemate, the upcoming vacation etc.).

Now, one could say that the dinner simply took us so long (or the cake I baked to take to my friend P’s Birthday, pics will follow soon), but that would be a lie.
Why? Because it’s way too easy and simple.

P1060506_lzn-1 THIS requires a minimum amount of dishes (basically just your plates and knives and I guess if you’re really lazy you could even eat it with your hands) and you don’t need to know anything about pizza dough making (hello, yeast haters). AND it was super tasty. What else could you want? Oh yeah, I forgot. A package of chocolate and some tortilla chips, please.

Take the tortillas, slather on some canned tomato sauce. Sprinkle with oregano and salt and pepper, layer on sliced tomatoes and the washed spinach on top.Lastly the cheese and bam, you’re done. These are my friend E’s hands by the way, I just couldn’t get her to hold still.

After 10 minutes at 180°C / 350°F fan the spinach will have shrank revealing your tomato pieces. It’s like rediscovering them all over again. And  there is no more finished pictures, because no one knows I have a food blog (or at least I try to have one).

Eet smakelijk, as the dutch would say. How do you say that in your language?

With love from the student kitchen,

Mediterranean Tortilla Pizza

  • Servings: 4 pizzas, enough for 2 people
  • Print

This is what you need
4 wheat tortillas
a can of tomato passata (unflavored tomato sauce), you’ll have plenty leftover
a handful of cherry tomatoes, washed and quartered
4 handfuls spinach (washed and dried) or more to taste
200 g feta cheese (1 package)

And this is how we do it
1. Preheat the oven to 18ß°C/350°F Fan, line twobaking sheets with parchment paper
2. Wash the spinach and drain away the water in a coleander, wash the tomatoes and quarter them (cut them half and then half again). Cut the cheese into small cubes
3. Layer the tortillas on the baking sheets, slather with tomato sauce
4. Sprinkle them with salt (if your sauce isn’t salted), some pepper and oregano
5. Add your tomatoes
6. Generously cover with spinach (look how it shrank in the pictures)
7. Add the cubed cheese
8. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until spinach has shrunk and cheese is slightly melted
9. Enjoy with your best friend and don’t forget to go for seconds!

    • Thank you so much, Adina. I just checked out yours, pretty cool as well :). By the way, I live in the land where gouda cheese comes from (although I haven’t been to the city yet). Why did you choose this name for your blog?

      • Thanks for checking it out! Haha that’s funny. Gouda is a great cheese and when “Gouda Fooda” popped in my head I couldn’t resist.
