Pizza is always a welcome treat and skillet style tortilla pizzas are so easy to make that you can pretty much make them whenever you want! Skillet tortilla pizzas are pretty much as easy as heating a skillet, adding the tortilla, a sauce, cheese and toppings before broiling in the oven! My go-to version is the pepperoni tortilla skillet pizza but given that tortillas are Mexican I can’t help but gravitate towards Mexican style toppings like in this crispy chorizo and potato tortilla skillet pizza. Crispy fried chorizo and potatoes with homemade chorizo sausage is a favourite quick and easy meal, either all by itself or used in something like tacos, or in this case a pizza! Using salsa for the ‘sauce’ is a no-brainer and including the cheese, you don’t really need a lot of extras, but some sliced jalapenos are nice! If you are using leftover chorizo and potato these crispy chorizo and potato tortilla skillet pizzas take less than 15 minutes to prepare and if you are making them from scratch they only take about 30 minutes making them pretty convenient. I like to top these pizzas off with fresh sliced avocado and you can add any of your choice of taco style topping if you desire.
Throw a fried egg with a gorgeous runny yolk on top and enjoy for breakfast!

The big question that I have right now is: why is this not on my plate and in my mouth. It looks *incredible*
Diane Villegas says
Did I miss something? It says to add half of the potato and half of the chorizo and egg to top of the tortilla. What do I do with the other half?
So you put a half pound of potato and chorizo on 1 tortilla? What? This recipe doesn’t make sense. 0 stars
We love tortilla pizzas. Do you grate the potato or slice thinly or? Thanks.
I usually dice them but sliced are also good!
