Easy Tortilla Pizzas with “Local” Products

You know, I’m going to milk our NM trip for all it’s worth.  🙂

As you might recall, we stocked up on local produce and products at the Taos Farmers Market before we headed home.  We purchased Napa cabbage (that found its way into a salad and a soup), carrots and potatoes (made into soup), ristras, green chili powder, homemade tortillas and some delicious summer sausage and pepperoni.

These later products were from Salazar Meats and were outstanding!  We bought jalapeno summer sausage (which was quite mild), pepperoni, and tasso ham.

We wanted to just chill on the Sunday of our return so we had a quick dinner of tortilla pizzas (along with some local brews from Duel).  These homemade tortillas were huge and thick—perfect for a pizza base.

Tomatoes from our garden.

These were simple to make and I am including a recipe though one is not really needed.  Use whatever you have on hand.

Easy Tortilla Pizzas (with a local twist)


This dish was inspired by what was on hand (from the Taos FM and our garden) after a glorious vacation and a long drive home.


  • 12-inch tortillas (Homemade if possible and the thicker the better.)
  • 4 oz. goat cheese, softened
  • Choice of sliced charcuterie (We used both sliced jalapeno summer sausage and pepperoni from Salazar Meats.)
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • a sprinkling of one or more of the following:  Herbed salt, Italian herb mix, fresh basil


Preheat oven to 425 F. Place tortilla on a baking sheet and spread goat cheese on tortilla. Arrange meats on top of goat cheese.  Arrange tomato slices on top of meats.  Sprinkle with your choice of seasonings. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until tomatoes begin to have a bit of color. Remove and slice into four pieces.

These were sooooo delicious (and simple).   I think I ended up making three different versions of this for three separate meals.  (We served them along side the Napa Cabbage Salad with Green Chili Vinaigrette and Pinion.)

I also wanted to share some more pics of our trip.


This majestic beast almost got nose-to-nose with us as we hiked the Rio Grande Gorge Rim.

He definitely wanted to get between us and his harem.

Rio Grande Gorge.  Beautiful hike.

There may be one more NM post.  🙂
