Mini Corn Tortilla Pizzas

These mini corn tortilla pizzas can be made in just a few minutes and only require four ingredients! Each pizza has 128 calories, 13g carbs, 6g fat, and 7g protein.

You can enjoy them as a snack between meals, or have a few (like I did) for lunch/dinner. The options are endless when making these savory treats.

Pizza is commonly seen as ‘unhealthy’ when it comes to dieting. You can reduce the amount of calories and fat when using smarter ingredients like turkey pepperoni and part-skim mozzarella cheese.

And when you place these toppings on a corn tortilla, carbohydrates are also lower (when compared to traditional pizza). Let’s take a look at this delicious and easy-to-make meal.


Corn Tortillas: Pizza really isn’t pizza without a base layer. You can substitute heavy flour with tortillas. I prefer corn over flour tortillas, because they’re gluten-free, have more dietary fiber, and magnesium.

Turkey Pepperoni: In order to resemble a traditional pepperoni pizza, I decided to use turkey pepperoni as a replacement. This specific brand has 73% lower fat and 50% fewer calories. To make this meal even leaner you could use shredded chicken.

Cheese: Who doesn’t love cheese? Unfortunately it’s where fat can really start to add up. Using a low-fat or non-fat variety can help with this problem. Some people like to use a blend of cheeses, but I choose part-skim mozzarella.

Marinara/Pizza Sauce: Using marinara or pizza sauce is entirely up to you. Just be aware that some brands have heavy oils in their ingredients. This Rao’s Homemade Tomato Basil adds plenty of flavor and makes for a perfect pizza.


Making mini corn tortilla pizzas is so easy. Scroll down to the recipe card for more detailed instructions. Here’s an overview of the steps:

Start by preheating your oven to 400° Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and spray it with non-stick cooking oil. In my case I used the toaster oven rack, so the cheese wouldn’t fall through.

Carefully place the tortillas on your tinfoil and make sure they are spaced evenly. The tortillas will stick together if they are touching each other in the oven.

Then, apply the marinara or pizza sauce. You can use a spoon to spread it out and don’t forget to leave room by the edge. Sprinkle on the mozzarella cheese before adding turkey pepperoni.

Finally, place the corn tortilla pizzas in the oven for five minutes. The pizza crust is so thin and leaving them in the oven for a longer period of time will burn the tortillas.

Remember to wear an oven mitt when removing your baking sheet, or rack from the oven. Allow the pizzas to cool for a few minutes before eating. I like to fold the tortillas and eat them like a taco!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is tortilla pizza healthy?

Yes! These mini corn tortilla pizzas are much healthier than traditional pizza. Turkey pepperoni, part-skim mozzarella cheese, and corn tortillas will significantly reduce the amount of total calories.

  • How many carbs are in a tortilla pizza?

There are only 13g of carbohydrates in each one of these pizzas. Just remember that not all tortillas have the same nutritional value. These tortillas are small (only 5.5 inches) which is why they’re so low in carbs.

  • Can I add other toppings?

Absolutely! You can add other toppings to this pizza. The goal for this recipe was to make a healthier (and smaller) pepperoni pizza. Just make sure the meat you’re using is cooked – as this pizza only needs to be in the oven for five minutes.
