Turkey Taco-Pizza

This week we are featuring recipes that fall under the category of snack and appetizers.

There is a line drawn between food considered as a snack, an appetizer, or a main dish and I'm not sure where that starts.  Snack refers to a small amount of food that is taken in between meals.  Appetizer on the other hand refers to a small amount of food or a drink, which is part of a course of meals, taken before the main course of a meal to stimulate one's appetite.  A main dish or main course is the featured or primary dish in a meal consisting of several courses.  (source:

Different cultures have different concepts about the three terms.  Some culture would refer to a certain dish as a snack while it is considered as a main course in another.  Or an appetizer for a certain culture may be regarded as the main course for another, and so on.  

So for this week, all the dishes we will be featuring, will fall under snack and appetizers.  Determining a dish to be snack or an appetizer will be based on our own point of view,  so don't argue with us please, just check on this delicious food creations for some meal ideas you can make for your family.

We are starting with this easy and quick to make taco-pizza.  If you know how to make pizza then this will be easy-peasy for you.  And if you are fond of Mexican food that involves tortillas then this would even be more exciting.  All you need are toppings or fillings of your choices, grated cheeses (mozzarella and cheddar), ketchup, and a few 8 inch diameter tortilla.  A 6 inch one would suffice.  Baking skills are not even needed.

Initially, I call this better-than-pizza because the bread is very crunchy but my husband treats it like a taco every time he eats it.  He folds them into half-moon.  So, I decided to name it a taco-pizza as a consensus.    I always serve this as snacks for me and my husband specially when I cannot think of anything to eat and yet I need to feed a hungry husband (who is on a diet by the way).


Ingredients :

Whole Wheat Tortilla (8") - 3 pcs
Turkey ham, sliced into strips - 4 pcs
Turkey Bacon, diced - 4 pcs
Pineapple Chunks - 150 g.
Bell Pepper, diced - 1 small
Mozzarella Cheese, grated
Cheddar Cheese, grated
Tabasco sauce

Cooking Procedure:

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius.
2.  Layout tortilla on a flat baking pan,  spread the ketsup on each tortilla, then the mayonnaise.
3.  Sprinkle the cheese or cheeses on them then arrange the toppings in any order as you wish.
4.  Bake for 10 minutes or until the tortilla is crunchy and the cheeses almost melted.
