Skip delivery and save on the carbs by using our NEW Low Carb, High Fiber Flour tortillas as personal pizza crusts. Get your whole family involved by offering a variety of fresh toppings and have fun getting creative in the kitchen. Whether it be mid-week or weekend, pizza night can prevail, and here’s why.

It’s Simple.

As long as you have a package of La Tortilla Factory Tortillas and a jar of pizza sauce in the pantry, pizza night will be easy as pie – pizza pie that is. We’re fans of “just opening up the fridge” and getting creative with the ingredients you see inside. But even with a little planning, the tortilla-pizza toppings are endless. Go Greek with feta cheese, olives and roma tomatoes. Left over chicken? Make a scrumptious BBQ chicken pizza. And for the veggie lovers in your life – top your tortilla-crust with grilled squash, asparagus and a handful of arugula. Remember, it’s hard to mess up a pizza, so be fearless and make up your own combinations!

Save Time, Money and Calories!

Let’s face it, traditional pizzas can be expensive and carbohydrate packed. But when swapping in a La Tortilla Factory Low Carb, High Fiber Flour Tortilla in lieu of the crust, you’ll not only save money on pricey pizza deliveries, but also on carbs, calories and fat. These tortillas crisp up nicely in ten minutes or less and have only 70 calories, 2.5 grams of fat and 6 net carbs per serving.

Make it a Family Affair.

Most kids love helping out in the kitchen, and it’s a good thing because studies show that kids who are actively involved in preparing their own food are much more likely to eat it. Ana Carreño, our HR manager, can attest. She likes to make a pizza bar for her family, which simply consists of chopping up an assortment of ingredients for toppings and putting them into individual bowls. The family is then invited to “build their own,” however they want it. She reports that her husband and two girls have a blast doing it and the best part is, their plates are clean when it’s over.

Chicken Chile Verde Pizzas

Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 40 minutes


Chile verde sauce

1 jalapeño pepper

1 pound whole green tomatillos, peeled and chopped

2 cups water

2 cups chicken broth

1 medium white onion, chopped

1 tablespoon oregano

2 bay leaves

3 cloves fresh garlic, crushed

1/4 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped

salt to taste


1 tablespoon fresh garlic

1 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 tablespoon ground oregano

1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon paprika

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

2 tablespoons olive oil

Remaining ingredients:

Nonstick cooking spray

1 package La Tortilla Factory Low Carb, High Fiber Tortillas, Traditional Flour or Made With Whole Wheat, Original Size

2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

1/2 bunch green onions, chopped


To prepare sauce, roast jalapeño by holding it with tongs directly over a gas flame until skin darkens. Place in a plastic zip-top bag for 5 minutes. Remove from bag, and skin should easily peel away. Chop chile and discard stem and seeds.

Blanch tomatillos in boiling water 1-2 minutes in a medium saucepan. Drain. Bring 2 cups fresh water and chicken broth to a boil over medium-high heat. Add tomatillos, jalapeño, onion and remaining sauce ingredients to pan. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes to reduce and thicken.*

Preheat oven to 400F.

While sauce cooks, prepare chicken. Combine garlic and next 5 ingredients (through paprika). Rub mixture over chicken to coat. Heat a large skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan. Add chicken, and cook 4-6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan and let rest 5 minutes. Chop chicken into 1-inch cubes and add to warm chile verde sauce.

Coat 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray. Place tortillas on cookie sheets. Spread evenly with chicken mixture. Top evenly with cheese and green onions. Bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and tortilla is crisp. Cool 5 minutes. Slice and serve.

Number of Servings: 10
