Clam and Garlic Tortilla Pizza


1 package of small corn tortillas, you'll need 8
4 ounces cans of chopped clams, aprox. 5 each, or the equivalent, drain water
1/2 pound of mushrooms, sliced thin
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
8 cloves of garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons soy sauce


Heat a cast iron pan on medium, add a few tablespoons of canola oil and chopped garlic. Stir frequently for about 2 minutes, then add clams (make sure you have drained them of water first). Stir thoroughly and often. Cook clams and garlic for 5 more minutes. In the last minute of cooking, add 2-3 TBS soy sauce. Stir and cook one more minute. Set aside to add to the pizza.
Place 8 small corn tortillas on a cookie sheet. Cover tortillas with pizza sauce. Add in this order: mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced mushrooms (uncooked), and clams and garlic. Place cookie sheet of corn tortilla pizzas in preheated 350F-Bake oven. Cook for 10-15 minutes.
While the pizza cooks, you can make a great green salad. Wash and spin your greens and add any vegetables you want: peppers, avocado, carrot, beets, celery, etc. I love making a homemade dressing of 1 part vinegar to 1 part olive oil and then add honey to taste. Toss salad with dressing. Serve with hot tortilla pizzas.

Why the soy sauce? I can buy in to all the other ingredients but soy sauce. Soy sauce doesn't go with tomato sauce, clams or corn tortillas.

Hi Curt,

I guess you'll just have to try it. The soy sauce is only used during cooking of the clams, but it certainly can be omitted if you like.


Homemade pizza without the work? Yes, please! This is an easy, quick recipe with just a few ingredients and you can include your kids in the process. For all that ease it is incredibly good! A special bonus is that it is entirely wheat and gluten free for those of you with food allergies.

I also love that the crust doesn't take over the flavor of the pizza, which is so often the case with cheap pizza. You can really add any toppings you want keeping in mind that all you need are good small corn tortillas (I use sprouted corn) and good pizza sauce. I don't recommend buying the cheapest corn tortillas for this as the "crust" is an important part of the pizza. The pizza sauce can be homemade if you have the time. I get a good organic one from my local grocery store. Have fun with this!
